Google held its annual developer conference, Google I/O, last week and over twenty Hack Reactor students and alumni were in attendance. The annual event is an exciting two days when developers can meet and collaborate, and Google rolls out a slew of new products.
This introductory workshop took Hack Reactor students and guests through building a Polymer Element. Polymer is "a library that uses the latest web technologies to let you create custom HTML elements" The idea is to build a variety of familiar things, from buttons to complete applications. Then you can reuse those elements you build--even on mobile.
