    In 2022, there are more interesting innovations for web developers in the Evergreen browsers than there have been for a long time. Not only is the long-awaited "parent selector" available with ':has()', but also @layer, which now allows the cascade to be influenced better. In addition, we get native container queries, not to forget subgrids. But also the small features like 'aspect-ratio', 'gap' in flexbox, fancy 'text-decoration'-styling, 'conic-gradient()', new colour spaces and their manipulation, adjusting fallback fonts and much much more.

    It seems like everybody and their dog is gushing about Rust, so what’s the deal? Let’s hear it from a seasoned web developer, who after decades of working with the web rekindled his love for software development through a systems programming language. We’ll hear about memory management, zero-cost abstractions, and fearless concurrency, and see what Rust brings on the table for web developers.

    Creating effective and unique data visualizations for news websites requires sophisticated tools. In fact, Svelte is currently becoming a gold standard tool to build interactive graphics for the world’s newsrooms. Why is that and what is so special about Svelte? Come and let’s go on a behind-the-scenes walk into the machine room of a modern interactive data visualization.

    Using historic performance data of german speed skater Claudia Pechstein, DER SPIEGEL created an interactive animation using Svelte and D3.js. Matthias Stahl shows and explains how one of the biggest German newspapers achieves such visualizations in an elegant and performant way. Expect to see some interesting pieces of code :)
