Building JavaScript at Scale

Over the last years the web tooling has evolved dramatically. Popular tools, such as Angular CLI and Create React App provide well encapsulated builds that “just work!”


Over time, however, we started building larger applications. Often so big that the time between code update and page reload takes tens of seconds instead of milliseconds. This is not only annoying but also reduces our productivity. An organization which hit this problem early on is Google. To make engineers working on large applications productive, Google developed Bazel - a tool for building applications at scale.

In this talk we’ll see how Bazel allows us to reduce our build time of our large applications in orders of magnitude! We’ll explain how it compiles our code in parallel, or even up in the ☁️. In the last part of the presentation, we’ll see how to use Bazel for our JavaScript at scale.

The Future of Audio Processing in the Web

WebAssembly opens a door for professional-grade audio software for the Web, allowing to compile plugins written in C, C++, or Faust. Faust is not only the tragic play by Goethe but a programming language for digital signal processing (DSP). During the talk, I compile Faust plugins right in online IDE into WebAssembly and load them as Web Audio Modules into a web-based guitar processing app.

Angular Lessons at the Enterprise Level

Angular, as a fully-fledged framework, provides an opinionated direction on how to structure your app, from design patterns to folder structure. When you are new to Angular, this is an advantage. Yet once you become a more seasoned developer, you start finding scenarios that require a closer look. Challenges like state management, library authoring, or handling hundreds of components demand you to look beyond the framework. You need to research what the ecosystem can offer in terms of tooling, dependencies, and patterns.

When you are working on a small app, these matters are minor, but when YOU are at the enterprise level, they become critical concerns that you need to address down the road. Big projects are just multipliers, make a small mistake, and you have thousands of euros down the drain. Join me to learn the most important lessons of 4 years of experience with Angular.

GraphQL for a better JavaScript Developer Experience (DX)

Handling data fetching is one of the biggest (and most duplicated) topics in web development. We developers often need to write a lot of imperative code to retrieve data to display in our applications. With GraphQL you can improve the DX of JavaScript development and I’ll show you how (even without a GraphQL server)!
