JSConf US 2013

29 May 2013

aim: decouple components

  • components have a simple contract with the outside world
  • lets you refactor a bit at a time rather than having dependencies that mean refactoring is a large task


  • make greater use of DOM |- object w/ reference to DOM node, can manipulate the DOM node, trigger/listen to events, etc

App = collection of components working in isolation

github: twitter/flight-jasmine - test components w/ jasmine

  • not equivalent to frameworks like angular, etc
  • doesn’t dictate architecture

JSConf 2013

This is a quick summary of a talk I attended at JSConf 2013. You can see a list of all those I've summarized notes from here. There's also a General thoughts during JSConf 2013 post for all the non-talk bits and pieces.

There were 3 concurrent tracks at the conference, so only those I attended myself are summarized here. Other attendees have summarized some of the talks I didn't get to due to scheduling conflicts - you can find those at jlongster.com (James Long) and Toby Ho's github repo.
