Classy Theming With HTTP/2 In Mind by Matt Thorne

With HTTP/2 fast approaching and with it the possibility of multiplexing and server push, a lot of the old best practices will actually slow the page load time. Using Classy as a base theme Matt is going to look at the interactions of the preprocess, libraries & templates. Splitting up all of your css & js code into individual components and calling each component only when required. This way when you do make the switch to HTTP/2 all you will have to do is turn off aggregation.

Drupal 8 and Ember - a full stack rapid web development toolkit by Boris Gordon

Drupal 8 aims to provide most of the tools you need to setup a great CMS out of the box with almost a RAD approach to content modelling and building authoring features. It also purports to have top notch REST facilities. Ember is a "batteries included" client side framework for building rich web apps with a focus on solving common patterns and problems. This talk explores the promise of using these two high leverage toolkits together and how their approaches are often quite similar and why they might have a strong future together. It also covers some of the rough edges of working with both as they exist today.
