FITC Web Unleashed 2014October 15, 2014 -
Last month I attended the FITC conference in Toronto. My biggest take-away was about Web Components (using the Polymer polyfill for now). HTML includes will be a game changer in general, but I’m calling this the biggest thing since RWD.
Web components will change the way we do web. An example given was about Google Maps. Currently you customize a map then grab an iframe with a long and nasty URL. The web componenty way of dealing with this will be a <google-map> object with attributes for lat, long, and API key. Sweet! This is a pretty sweet demo showing HTML includes in action: https://www.polymer-project.org/components/paper-calculator/demo.html
It was a fun conference, and really great finally meeting some people I only knew from online.
