Ever tried to make a realtime web application? Servers, scaling, cross browser compatibility issues, syncing, security… what a pain!

Luckily, Firebase is here to save the day. We’ll learn how to make a realtime web application with no servers and no fuss! Topics covered include: a brief overview, reading & writing data, authentication, and deployment.


Jon von Willern @vongillern

Love MVVM? Hate storing state in the DOM and complex DOM manipulation? Don’t want to deal with Angular’s routes, modules and service factory factories? Want excellent browser compatibility? Knockout JS just may be what you’re looking for. Swing by this session and let Knockout knock your socks off.

Using ES6 modules today

Toran Billups @toranb

Do you want to use the next generation of javascript modules today? Join me for a live coding session where I show how to write es6 modules and transpile them to AMD. Specifically I’ll be showing off the es6-module-transpiler. If we have time I’ll also show a bower demo where you can install and import modules on demand without having to worry about order dependent scripts (even for scripts with nested dependencies).
