Agenda for FrontEnd focused 72nd

  • Alfreds Genkins and Ilja Lapkovskis from Scandiweb will give a talk “Modern PWA experience with old generation e-comm platform – the reasons, techs and goals”.
    In the last time PWA became another hype word in web development. There are tons of promises, multiple selling-point features, but after all – these are we, technicians, who empowers all these. Right now Scandiweb is about to release first real-life Magento 2 PWA application, which has reworked UI to utilizes power of PWA and why we adopted it into the old stack. During our speech we want to destruct all the hype and marketing to share the tech behind these, new opportunities and ofcourse new challenges:
    – What is PWA and can it be simple with all these cool features and marketing promises
    – How to implement PWA for complex scenarios and highly dynamic applications, i.e. e-commerce platform
    – Real life example – how Scandiweb recreated Magento frontend to make it feel native with React JS and GraphQl
    – Technology and tool market – how it looks in the beginning of 2019.

  • Dzulqarnain Nasir from Geta Digital will give a talk “Dependency Injection in JavaScript with InversifyJS”.
    Dependency injection is a programming technique that makes a class independent of its dependencies. It achieves that by decoupling the usage of an object from its creation. This helps you to follow SOLID’s dependency inversion and single responsibility principles. In this presentation, I will demonstrate how this can be achieved in JavaScript using an IoC container library called InversifyJS.
