As we propose to bring connectivity to everyday objects, we also propose to change the way we live, work and play. But not only. Much of the promise of the internet of things lies in using everyday objects to making visible data we chose ignore: our environment, our habits, our health, our effect on others. This new world promises to be one where behavioural change will need to take place, businesses will need to streamline their efforts and we will finally be faced with the task of building a better world. This talk will discuss what that road means for people and businesses and future public policy.
With just 5 years to go until The Future™ officially starts in 2020, it's time to pull on your lycra-and-tinfoil onesie, pick out the colour of your hovercar, and consider the technologies you'll use for your upcoming web projects. Thanks to a temporal wormhole triggered by a freak SharePoint misconfiguration, I can exclusively reveal the architecture of a web app designed several years in the future. Some of it is predictable ES6/7 stuff - web components, shadow DOM, etc. - but then it gets into metaprogramming, cross-compilation from native code, advanced parallelism techniques, layout *without* CSS, and more. In this demo-centric session I'll show you each of these likely upcoming web technologies. Most of them are impossible (or at least downright irresponsible) to use in production web apps today, but seeing them in action will give you a sense of the possibilities that may soon open up.
