Web Components

Hello JavaScript Air friends!

This week’s podcast is all about Web Components. As with anything new, there’s been a lot of fear, uncertainty, and doubt (FUD) about Web Components. We’re going to chat about some of their use cases, strengths, and weaknesses to give us all a better idea of this tech.

Join us as we talk with Monica Dinculescu (@notwaldorf), Tushar Mathur (@tusharmath), and Rob Dodson (@rob_dodson) for Episode 42: Web Components!

Debug Your Production JavaScript Faster with TrackJS

The web is a hostile place and our JavaScript apps will inevitably break. Browser changes, invasive plugins, unstable networks, or just plain bugs—something is going to go wrong. When it does, we need to be ready. We need to know what went wrong and how to fix it or our users just won’t come back.

From this episode:

“My favorite analogy for web components is the question of would you use an input for a search field in your website, or application? It’s not about whether you need a framework to build a website. I have a blog and on my blog I have a couple of web components–one of them makes rain emoji–but I’m not using any frameworks.”
