Presentation

Overview

A few years ago we were front-end developers. These days, as the tools we use to build the web are getting better, easier, and more powerful, we’ve suddenly become full-stack developers. Let’s take a look at what happened and how we can take full advantage of our new super powers.

Objective

Make the case that front-end developers have become a lot more powerful which is both empowering and a burden.

Target Audience

People who self-identify as front-end developers, or anybody interested in web development.
