Put Down the Javascript – Level Up with the Fundamentals of Web Development

Seasoned and beginner alike, developers have a habit of jumping right into a framework or new technology that makes a lot of promises while also glazing over important fundamentals that without, tend to hold back a website or application’s potential. Without some basic knowledge of HTML, you might inadvertently exclude people from learning about your company through your website due to poor accessibility. Lacking an understanding or simply being afraid of CSS, you might be more prone to add unnecessary libraries on top of libraries that just add to the weight of the page, impacting how quickly your app can load. In this talk, we’ll go over some basic HTML and CSS strategies that can immediately be used right alongside of Javascript including frameworks like React and Vue that will provide another range of benefits like better accessibility, simpler code, and ways you can improve SEO letting search engines like Google more easily figure out what your page is about.
