Web Directions Code ’21 session spotlight–Practical uses for Web Components

Practical uses for Web Components

Ben Taylor, Full-Stack Developer Explosion

Web Components can feel like a bad fit for a JavaScript tech stack. If you’ve got a legacy codebase, you might be thinking about switching costs. Or you’re already running a modern stack and don’t see a need for them. But this shouldn’t be an either/or, you can have both!

Web Components work great as isolated improvements to your codebase. Their API is neat and tidy and doesn’t require a “big switch”. In this talk I’ll give an overview of Web Components and explore examples of how you can use Web Components practically in any codebase.
