Svelte is a beloved JavaScript framework and a radical new approach to building user interfaces. Whereas traditional frameworks like React and Vue do most of their work in the browser using the virtual DOM, Svelte delivers your initial state as HTML markup. Doing most of the work at build time, Svelte’s lack of runtime overhead makes your website cheaper, faster, and highly performant. Svelte is also beginner-friendly and has topped recent developer surveys as one of the most loved frameworks with the most satisfied developers.

This workshop will briefly lecture on how Svelte works, how it’s different from other tools, and why that matters. Then we’ll jump into lecturer-led exercises where you’ll build up a working application. You’ll come away with an understanding of how Svelte can fit into your toolkit and the ability to begin experimenting with Svelte on your own.

Previous experience with Svelte or other reactive frameworks is not required. Being comfortable with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript is required.
