The UI Components define a major part of the Magento 2 frontend and are closely linked to the backend logic. No matter whether you are frontend- or backend-developer, it is mandatory to understand and operate with these Javascript components. Especially changing and extending those, for example in the checkout, is a challenge for all of us. An overview about the initialization, the structure, the usage, the customization possibilities, risks and opportunities is given by this presentation. Possible solutions for debugging are shown as well.

I have not had any experience of the UI components in the frontend of Magento 2 so this was a perfect introduction for me. Well presented and full of useful knowledge.

I was thrilled to see somebody share good details on the architecture of JS components in M2. This was definitely helpful to many!

Great talk from first time speaker Maria, giving a great overview of using javascript on the frontend with Magento's UI component system. The real world example shown with a world map and product list was really great to see. The only thing I'd have liked to seen further was a link to a code repo for the example shown.
