Introduction to Apple TV App's

Introduction to building an Apple TV Client-Server app with the TVJS Framework and ES6.

The 4th generation Apple TV comes with the TVJS framework, a JavaScript API provided by Apple themselves. We'll look at how to interact with this and make use of the new TVML (TV Markup Language) to quickly create a 'Client-Server' app. The app it's self will be built using ES6 features such as template strings, classes, arrow functions, let & const, modules and new array methods. We'll have a look at some of these and their use cases.

Interoperable CSS

We know CSS isn’t perfect – the global scope, the specificity, the mutability. We go out of our way to over-engineer our stylesheets with complex architectures and naming conventions to make our code a little more bearable. Imagine a world where we could write modular CSS that only affected the components we intend it to and inheritance is explicit rather than cascading. This talk explores the concept of CSS Modules and Interoperable CSS to see how our applications and stylesheets can work together to made our code simpler, cleaner and easier to maintain.

Forum

We're trying somthing a bit different this month and introducing a forum. The general chats and discusstions at ForeFront are some of the best bits. We're aiming to encorage these discussions.

Topic: The Future of front end

Front end design and development continues to move at a frenetic pace but what does the future hold, what exciting directions are we moving into?

We're using Sli.do to gather questions, upto and on the night. You can submit questions, and vote up other suggestions to be discussed.
