Building components that can stand the test of time is tough! Frameworks change, new fads emerge, and often we're left with an aging codebase that needs to be rewritten if we want to stay current. Polymer and Web Components aim to change this cycle by building on new platform primitives which will allow us to finally create interoperable components that work in an environment. In this session we'll look at the current Web Component ecosystem, and I'll show you how to start to integrate these tools into your projects.
