    Talk: Backend Essentials for Frontend Developers

    With the rise of full-stack frameworks and the blurred line between frontend and backend, it’s becoming more and more important to have a good understanding of backend mechanics. In this talk, we’ll be diving into some key backend concepts like webhooks, background jobs, cron jobs, and more. These concepts are really important for front-end developers, especially as their applications start getting more complex. This talk will provide you with guidance on when, how, and why you should integrate these components into your projects.

    Talk: Building hacking tools in JavaScript

    If we follow Atwood’s Law, “Any application that can be written in JavaScript, will eventually be written in JavaScript”. As I started studying cybersecurity in my personal time, I noticed that the tools available to hackers are usually coded in C, C++ or Python but, as a front-end developer, I started wondering… Wouldn’t it be cool to rebuild some of these tools in JavaScript instead?! In this talk, I will show how I rebuilt a famous tool to hack wireless devices using only Web APIs so you can hack doorbells, garage doors and more right from the browser!

    Talk: A Journey Inside the Developer Brain

    How do you get into the zone while coding? Why does taking a walk or taking a shower seem to help solve problems?

    Everything we do is regulated by complex processes in the brain, and coding is no exception. Sometimes it can feel difficult to feel in control of our brains when coding, but to debug the problem we’ll first need to understand it.

    This talk will dive into the basic neurological processes and psychological behaviors involved with learning and writing code. By understanding the physiological processes involved in the work we do, we can be more in touch with our bodies and more productive as a result.

    Talk: The intentions were good

    We hope for our web applications to be as beautiful, performant, and accessible as possible; but sometimes… Things get in the way and the outcome is not as good as we hoped. In this talk I’ll walk you through a few of my failed attempts at developing accessible web applications. We’ll go through different accessibility assumptions and myths that I wrongly believed to be true and how to avoid them by properly testing for accessibility.

    This talk aims to be a reminder about the fact that, more often than not, inaccessible applications are a result of lack of knowledge, not lack of caring. That it is ok to make mistakes, but it is also essential to avoid making the same mistake twice.

    Talk: Blink and you’ll miss it: Stories from discovering most annoying bugs and test flakes

    Some bugs just tend to hide when you look at them. We’ve all experienced a 3 hour bug-hunt that lead to nowhere and made us question our skills. In my talk, I would like to share some of the most annoying bugs and test flakes that I have encountered in my time as SDET and walk you through a process of how to make debugging faster and - believe it or not - fun. I’d like to share my tips on how to narrow down a bug, test flake and demonstrate how to use a time-machine debugger called Replay.io to identify the root cause.

    Talk: Type-Safe Style Systems: The Future of CSS

    Most CSS developers today write visual styles in terms of what you literally see: exact color values, size numbers, and so on. But what if you could write styles as a function of how they fit into your design system? And what if you could get type safety in specifying and using those values, including in responsive props?

    This talk will dive into some of the key features and flaws in many design system builders today such as Chakra UI and Tailwind. We’ll establish what the best next steps for design systems should be with type-safe TypeScript APIs and performance both for prebuilt pages and at runtime. The Vanilla Extract and Rainbow Sprinkles projects together are a great way to try this out now, and I’m hopeful for more efforts.

    Attendees will leave the talk both with an appreciation for the systems of today and hope for the type-safe systems of the future.

    Talk: Console.loggers Anonymous – A Debugging Roadmap from Local to Production

    console.log(”<— INTRO HOOK”);

    Console.log: a JavaScript developer’s old friend. While it’s tried and true, it often feels like blindly probing at your running code.

    console.log(”<— PROBLEM STATEMENT”);

    Don’t you just wish you could skip it all and peer into your running application? Maybe you’ve used the debugger before, but what about in production? How can you find the source of a bug when it’s affecting your users?

    console.log(”<— MEAT AND POTATOES”);

    In this talk, we’ll give an overview on the landscape of debugging tools in the JS ecosystem used in both local development and production. We’ll dissect logging, tracing, instrumentation, and profilers, exploring how these tools can provide profound insights into your running code. You’ll see these tools in action, helping you understand their power and ease of use.

    Talk: A deep dive into Source Maps

    Modern JavaScript application are built on top of an immense stack of tools: transpilers, bundlers, minifiers… The code we write goes through multiple transforms before being sent to the browser. Yet, Source Maps let us debug our application and decode errors as if we were directly running our original source files.

    How are they able to undo any transformation applied to your code? Can they actually do it, or is there something that they cannot represent? How do different tools decide what to encode to and decode from source maps?

    We will explore together how the source maps format works and which data they encode, as well as a new standardization effort to align all tools and expand what source maps are capable of.

    Talk: Reimagining web layout for accessible multilingual content

    Web layout is one of the most important aspects of web development, as it determines how the content is presented and perceived by the users. However, web layout is not a one-size-fits-all solution, as different languages and writing modes have different text directions and layout conventions. Using traditional CSS properties can lead to layout issues when the text direction changes.

    To solve this problem, we can use CSS logical properties. In this presentation, we will explore CSS logical properties and how they differ from traditional CSS properties. We will see some practical examples of using CSS logical properties in real-world scenarios, that you can apply in your next project.

    Talk: Making Minimal Techno with WebAssembly And a C Compiler

    The C programming language, a cornerstone of computing, originated in the early 1970s. Meanwhile, techno music with its roots in 1980s Detroit, has been with us as an always-evolving phenomenon ever since. These enduring artifacts of cultural creativity have not only survived but thrived over the decades.

    On the other hand, WebAssembly and Audio Worklets represent some of the latest advancements of the web platform, only having been widely supported for a small handful of years.

    In this session we’re going to smash the old together with the new to make some creative sparks appear. Equipped with nothing but a C to WASM compiler and a standard web browser, we’re going to conjure some minimal techno into being. We’ll see that you don’t necessarily need anything new or anything big to make something cool. There’s a lot of value in the minimal and the mature.

    Talk: The Roof Is on Fire?

    The devastating wildfires that ravaged Europe in 2023, burning an area the size of London, highlight the urgent need for improved fire detection and reporting systems at scale.

    In this talk, we will explore how JavaScript and widely available electronics can be combined to create a low-cost, cheap and effective wireless fire detection system. We will deploy this system in a wild forest in Greece and utilize AI models to predict where the next blaze could be sparked.

The journey to a mature ecosystem

After we reflected in 2023 on the past 10 years of frontend development, in 2024 we want to spotlight some of the established patterns and architectures that reached maturity and are becoming industry standards.

Leaving behind us the tumultuous growth of the JS ecosystem we will focus on the positive outcomes of all the years of challenging “best practices”. We want to bring on stage talks about design patterns and system architecture, but also web standards and language advancements. Along with these, we want to tackle software complexity and dealing with legacy code and legacy systems.

At JSHeroes, we always ventured outside the pure language ecosystem, so expect to see a variety of talks covering the entire landscape of web development and JavaScript as a universal programming language.

But of course, we will not neglect the human side of things, in our effort to paint a full picture for the development community in 2024.
