From DRY techniques to the new hotness, atomic design, there’s no question that web development is becoming increasingly modular. And web components are part of that evolution towards modularity, but many devs remain uncertain about why, when and how to use them.
ExpressionEngine veteran and front-end expert John Rogerson returns to the show to help de-mystify web components. We get into basic definitions and use cases, and John offers great analogies to web dev approaches we are all already familiar with. We discuss the pros of web components (modularity, extensibility) and the cons (new spec, undefined standards, accessibility). And John shares his favorite resources for understanding and getting started with web components. Tune in now!
