Polymer + Web Components

Web Components is an exciting new standard providing the foundation for creating your own custom elements for use in browser based applications. Google's Polymer library builds upon the core Web Components standard to simplify creating elements, as well as adding additional functionality such as templating and two-way databinding.

This session will cover the basics of Web Components and Polymer:

  • Getting Started With Polymer
  • Creating Your First Element
  • Templating
  • Styling
  • Two-Way Databinding
  • Property Observation

Finally we will put it all together and use our custom element as a building block for a sample application.
