Andrew has given a couple of talks at national conferences recently, on other front-end topics. First there was cssdevconf 2014, on web components (slides here: http://www.slideshare.net/andrewrota/web-components-and-modular-css), and more recently React.js Conf 2015, where he spoke about the interoperation of web components and React. Wow, that was a hot conference! Tickets could be had for only a few minutes before it was sold out. Fortunately the Facebook conference people are always really great about posting video, and here’s his talk on Youtube, with slides: http://www.slideshare.net/andrewrota/the-complementarity-of-reactjs-and-web-components.
Update: the slides from the presentation last Thursday night are up, here: http://www.slideshare.net/andrewrota/an-exploration-of-frameworks-and-why-we-built-our-own-46467292
