Currently, I’m working on my first Magento 2 project.
I found out that a lot of Magento frontend skills learned from Magento 1 are deprecated.

You have to rethink about how you setup your styles and templates if you’ll stick to default Magento with Grunt and LESS or if you want to move to the Snowdog solution including Gulp and SASS, or even use Magento 2 headless and develop the frontend in a separate environment.

My talk will be about this kind of decisions, questions, and struggles during the development of a Magento 2 shop.

Love the positive tone about the change for FE developers moving from M1 to M2.
Although I'm a backender myself the tips were quite useful

A surprise talk, because many thought the topic would be technical. Instead, Arjen stood there sharing his personal experiences instead. For those who have been there already, it was a great recognition. For those who still need to get there, it contained great tips. Without code :)

Refreshingly honest talk from Arjen on they considered frontend options when moving to Magento 2, including headless, but decided to stick with the 'vanilla' LESS blank theme as was the best fit for them. Liked the comparison of M1 and M2 to Joshua and Klitschko too - very apt!
