Description

JavaScript has a long history of being difficult to structure and maintain. To deal with this complexity a swath of frameworks have emerged over the years.

Prototype.js to jQuery quickly followed by Dojo, YUI, Mootools and many others…but wait, Backbone, Angular and React are here! JavaScript can be a hard scene to follow. So what’s next? Nothing!

At a glacial pace we have seen the web to cues from the frameworks of yore and incorporate them into the living standards and browsers themselves. Many of those changes are ubiquitous now. JavaScript 6 (ES6) and web components are happening! Come to this talk to learn how to get started writing structured apps using only vanilla web platform code.
