Intro to Svelte: Say Yes to Productivity!

By now I'm sure you have heard of Svelte. But you have already put effort into learning other web frameworks like React, Vue, or Angular. So why should you bother learning one more? Productivity! Svelte makes so many things easier. This includes HTML templating, scoping CSS to components, managing component state, managing application state, and adding animations. It requires less code than other frameworks to do the same things. Svelte also generates smaller bundle sizes than most frameworks, resulting in apps that load faster in browsers. This talk will demonstrate each of these benefits. By the end you will know whether Svelte deserves more of your attention.
