Presentation


Overview

Starting a new project can be exciting! You may get to choose your own tools and best practices, or you may feel lost in the abyss of options in the Node.js ecosystem. In this talk we’ll go over concepts such as debt-mitigation, accessibility and user experience requirements, server-side rendering, and how evaluating these ideas led to my proposal to use Svelte with my team.

It’s a major business investment to go with a certain tool or methodology, and its impacts are far-reaching. It’s ever-important to make the right calls and be able to signpost those decisions at any point in the future. I’ll help you navigate this process, or at least shed light on the weight behind some of these decisions we make when building software.

Objective

Help developers make the right choices by avoiding complexities in often-neglected places when planning web projects.

Five Things Audience Members Will Learn

  • Questioning small details
  • Web fundamentals, and how our tools work with (or against) them
  • Identifying personal bias, and forming an honest decision with them
  • Success metrics in proving technical and product excellence
  • DX and UX considerations

Target Audience

This talk appeals to web software developers in architecture or leadership roles; though developers at various levels, interaction designers, and product owners will have takeaways as well.
