Hello and welcome to Pluralsight.

I’m Leon Revill a Web Architect specialising in front-end technologies based around JavaScript. I’m so excited to be able to deliver my course “A Practical Guide to Vanilla Web Components” to help you prepare for the future of Web Development.

Web Components solve fundamental problems that web developers have been putting up with since the dawn of the web. These problems include style encapsulation, reusability, interoperability and the big one - framework lock in.

This course is for Web Developers who want to get ready for the next big shift in front-end Web Development.

In the course, I’ll Introduce you to the Web Components specifications and their super powers.

We’ll also create two high quality Web Components which will demonstrate the specifications in detail.

By the end of the course you’ll be able to write top quality encapsulated UI components which can be used in almost any front-end technology stack.

They’ll be reusable, extensible and themeable and I’ll also show you how to make them production ready by preparing them for cross platform use including legacy browsers such as IE11.

Web Components have been a long time coming to the Web Platform and they are finally here. With libraries, frameworks and even entire conferences dedicated to Web Components now is the perfect time to dive deep into this exciting new technology to discover the possibilities that it’ll open for you and the applications you create.
