Josh, Matt, Ben, and Max discuss what the Ionic team has been up to, including Ionic 4, Stencil, and Capacitor.Show Outline:Stencil background: How it came to be when creating Ionic 4 Our bet on web components and how they help us make Ionic 4 the most performant Ionic yet.  Angular 8 release: Their “batteries included” approach is beloved by developers and the ionic team Shadow DOM and Web Components: Unlocking customizability  CSS variables: Required to use Shadow DOM. To see the power behind them, check out the Color Generator toolBen swears. Bad Ben! Why upgrade to Ionic 4? “It’s just Angular” for the most part. See our migration guide. New release notes docs page.  Ionic docs: Renewed effort to “make the docs dope”Max email from schools teaching web development.  An investment in Ionic is an investment that sticks with you because it’s “just” web dev. Status of Ionic React - when is 1.0 coming? Trolling Matt: Tweet @matthewkremer about how to build a WhatsApp clone Capacitor: background, history of this new project. Who’s building apps with Capacitor today? Community app shout outs, including Volleyball score, Sencrop, Groot News Radio, Sworkit, Southwest AirlinesIonic’s own Matt Kremer porting Pokemon field guide app GoRanger from Ionic 3 + Cordova to Ionic 4 + Capacitor Stencil One beta: Focused on stability, constructible stylesheets, incredibly small bundle sizes. Updated compiler offers faster compilation speed.Company pain points: Love Stencil because teams often use a variety of web frameworks. They can build reusable web components that teams can share, thus avoiding having to reinvent the wheel each time. Q&A from the community, including tools that the Ionic team uses Conclusion: Where do you see Ionic in 10 years?  “We’re a Web Company.” - Mic drop from Ben

Dogu Taskiran of Stambol Studios joins us to discuss the evolution of AR and VR on the web. In short, AR/VR support on the web is still evolving, but now is a great time to give it a try. Companies are building serious app experiences today, especially in the retail/e-commerce space.Show Notes: Google and others are investing serious resources into WebVR. Standardization is actively evolving. Overhead, performance concerns? New devices are coming out to the market, that are fast and enabled with VR & AR. We don't expect it to be used to build games but integrated applications such as e-commerce/travel apps are being built today. "We need to tap into the expertise to spread the use of the VR/AR. Web development community is 30 times larger than the native developers, so the talent is there!" This technology becomes the most valuable when it is integrated within various business domains. A try-before-you-buy is going to be so invaluable. Dogu predicts that we'll see more and more of those.
