About Speaker
Hi, I’m Kenigbolo Meya Stephen, Full Stack Software Engineer working as the Frontend Engineering Team Lead at [BCaster OY]( Formerly the Arch Conveyer/Community Manage of CodeAfrique(now Reload), a not-for-profit weekend intensive software engineering bootcamp for underrepresented groups in IT based out of Estonia.

During my free time I sometimes volunteer as an open source developer for [ADSBx](, play golf and coach football (soccer as Americans call it). I also have a nick for writing tiny javascript modules on npm to help a few developers out there so they need not rewrite same utilities that we all might need (usually it’s the case that we’re only a handful needing those so there’s really nothing too worry much about).

Components – more than a shinny frenzy.

Talk abstract
More often than not developers fall into the trap of wanting to use some shinny trend heard in the IT world and that is no different with web components. Do you really understand the design decisions behind the concept of web components? In this talk we’ll take a deep dive into what it is all about.

Talk description
In the last few years the term web components have become a main stay in frontend development and web development at large. This popularity as usual tends to come with a huge adoption in the industry albeit without people actually understanding the core concepts behind this new frenzy they’ve encountered. This isn’t limited to juniors alone. The goal of this talk is to give a deep dive into the background behind components, where it came from, how it has evolved and possibly what we might see in the future.
