Last week, thanks to Arxia, I was one of the lucky 700 participants who attended the jQuery UK conference. This yearly event is the largest front-end developer conference in the UK.
The event started with a presentation held by Dave Methvin, the President of the jQuery Foundation, about ES6 is the answer! What was the problem?. He talked about the new features of ECMAScript 6, that is the next version of the standard expected to be released in mid 2015, and how we can start using this new standard and converting the code using different transpilers, for instance babel, to compile the code into ECMAScript 5 code for browsers that do not support the standard ECMAScript 6. In the second presentation, called mdoular CSS, Mark Otto, the co-creator of Bootstrap, showcased ten guidelines on how to write better CSS.
A big “Thank you” goes to the organizers of the conference for the impeccable organisation and also to the speakers for their very interesting talks!
