About Talk

Over the last few years, we have seen a plethora of Javascript libraries which were trying to fill the gaps the Web Platform had. Each became their own language for web development, thereby making it hard for a developer to choose the Web as the ultimate platform of choice. We at Salesforce deeply believe in the power of Web as we use this platform to drive our 120 billion Salesforce ecosystem. We were part of the community which drove rapid technological changes on the Web and have enabled the emergence of Web as the true platform. Over time, we have created an end to end stack with all the tools you need to cater to multiple form factors. Come to this talk to learn more about the Modular UI stack which Salesforce is creating on top of standards based web API’s. This ensures that the developer is empowered with the right tools, security guardrails, modules to build delightful experiences for their enterprise customers. With our OSS commitments, developers can take these UI stacks anywhere they want
