This talk is designed to expose you to a plethora of technologies that you might’ve heard about, but haven’t learned yet. We’ll concentrate on the most important web developer skills, as well as UI tips and tricks to make you a better front-end engineer. Some of the most valuable engineers these days have front-end JS/CSS skills, as well as backend Java skills.
