  • The King's Centre, Oxford

Web development has changed dramatically over the last few years. Today, more than ever, when you are building your front-end you will probably want to reuse components across your application. But HTML elements are very limited, so what can we do?

Then, we will delve into HTML5 Web Components standards and the opportunities that they present. In the second half of the day, we will learn how to build web components using the popular React library.
