Polymer Polytechnic



LEVEL: Intermediate

More than semantic elements, less than unicorns


Web Components are a new set of emerging standards that allow developers to extend the web platform by creating their own HTML elements. Imagine if the web had its own mobile SDK, and building a web application meant wiring together well encapsulated components with scoped CSS. That’s the future Web Components will bring about. And using a library like Polymer, we can actually start building projects that leverage these future technologies, today!

Polymer does two things:

– It polyfills Web Components in modern browsers that lack support (IE 10+, Safari 6+, Mobile Safari), this means you can create projects that use Web Components and actually run them cross browser.

– It adds features to the browser which are not part of the Web Components standards, but make working with Web Components easier. These features include data-binding, gesture support, property observation, and a clean, declarative syntax for creating new components.


Polymer Polytechnic is an event series of in-person, community-run events to help developers learn Polymer. These events are run by local Google Developer Groups or other developer meetups all over the world. Each event is a little different, but generally, Polymer Polytechnic can include a tech talk, series of code labs, and time for personal hacking.

Food and drinks will be provided.
