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 along side of your favorite Javascript
frameworks like React that will provide another range of benefits like
better accessibility, simpler code, and ways you can improve SEO by
letting search engines like Google more easily figure out what your page
is about.
