Fixing HTML for everyone with CustomElements

Over the past years, we’ve witnessed an incredible evolution in the front end landscape. Emerging frameworks, vendors and patterns help us solve complex problems. But in this talk, we’ll peel back the layers of abstraction and dive into the core mechanics of the web on a quest to build truly accessible, performant and framework independent components. We’ll uncover secrets of both ancient and modern web APIs, and explore how leveraging open, standardised web fundamentals still is vital in 2023.
