Polymer talk at stahlstadt.js

Published on

After weeks of bugging me, the local organizer of stahlstadt.js finally got me to agree to hold a talk at the meetup.

I didn't really know what to tell the really high educated audience, that they wouldn't already know about and after some time to think, I finally landed on the topic of polymer. I have created smaller polymer applications in the past and after the release candidate of polyer 2.0 was announced, which praised their high standard-compliance of their syntax I wanted to try that.

I started to gather some info material which covered the basics of polymer and webcomponents and also compiled a new demo component. This demo component was implemented in three different ways.

The results were pretty awesome, since there were not a lot of differences between the polymer es6 implementation and the one following the W3C standard. Although the convenience of having data-binding inside of templates cannot be denied.

Thank you all, who attended stahlstadt and listened to my talk. It was the first presentation I've given since my thesis presentation 5 years ago and I was pretty nervous going into it. It was an amazing experience and I'm pretty sure it wasn't the last time.
