Web Components are a new set of web platform features that enable developers to build applications in declarative, composable ways.
Polymer is a (Google-developed) library that polyfills Web Component support on modern browsers, and builds on those features to simplify and enhance their usage for rapid development.
The GDG Benin will have a HACKADEMIC WITH POLYMER event, and it will feature teck talks, demos and code lab sessions for Polymer / Web Component components and apps built with this hot technology.
– Introductory presentation / video

– Maps / Tutorial Codelab
We will be hacking this event on Saturday, Feb. 21st, 2015, at the LT1 of the College of Medical Sciences at the Univesity of Benin, Benin City, Edo State. A good grasp of HTML, JS and CSS is desirable (not necessarily required) to fully benefit from the codelab sessions
