  • Implementing Web Components at scale
  • Time: TBD | Room: E-131
At Pinterest, we've begun experimenting in production with Web Components. This talk will discuss some challenges of implementing Web Components in a large scale production environment such as SEO concerns, reasonable fallbacks for browsers not supported by Platform.js, migrating a large code base component-by-component to mitigate risk, and optimizing page load and scroll performance.
