Variety of Topics
After this very inspiring talk the conference day was split up into two tracks, one track was mostly about nodejs related topics and in the main hall were all front-end related topics.
The variety of topics was very broad: XSS protection with trusted types (from Google), E2E testing with Cypress, Functional programming with Lenses and Lambda, WebGL performance and even a topic about the only paid contributor to Babel about ways to make money in the world of open source software.
Open Source Awards
Besides that, the open source awards were a great opportunity to get new inspiration on different topics. It’s a nice way to give some appreciation to all the hard working open source people on a lot of widely used projects.
There were some very good and inspiring talks:
Jarrod Overson talked about how the event-stream debacle took place. This talk gave us once more the reminder that you need to be very careful when depending on 3rd party libraries.
Mat Groves about PixiJS to render 2d content on the web through WebGL. He showed the differences in performance between html, canvas and WebGL to render 2d content on the web.
This was the first time we attended this conference and we had a good experience. We ended the day with steak at Loetje.
