Houston TechFest 2015 Web Components
Building Web Applications with Web Components
Web Components have been on developers’ radars for quite some time now. They were first introduced by Alex Russell at Fronteers Conference 2011. The concept shook the community up and became the topic of many future talks and discussions.
Four years later, most people still haven't heard of Web components and how they allow developers to extend the native Document Object Model of the browser to create custom HTML tags with encapsulated behavior and style.
This talk will introduce you to the technology, a couple of libraries, and then reveal the power behind Web Components in a live demonstration of building a non-trivial application.

The code will only work in browsers that support ES6 features like classes and arrow functions, not because Web components need that, but that's how I like to write code: on the cutting edge :)
