Shane Osbourne - Web Components: The Worst Thing to Happen to Front-End Development Since Table Layouts.

Are you tired of clean, modular code? Are you sick of reusable, easily maintainable components? Well, have I got a solution for you! Introducing Web Components: the most frustrating & convoluted way to build your front-end projects.

We'll delve into the many ways that Web Components fail to live up to the hype. We'll explore the cumbersome implementation process, endless browser compatibility issues, & the sheer confusion that comes with trying to use these so-called "components."

If you're using React, Vue, or Svelte, you probably want to hear what I have to say. Defend yourselves from that 'new hire' that always says 'but why not Web Components'.

Shane is a software engineer with over 10 years of experience. He's the author of the popular Open Source project https://browsersync.io/ & is currently working at DuckDuckGo.
