This year’s Frontend Nation conference was held from June 4th through 7th and showcased an impressive array of technical sessions and discussions, establishing itself as a must-attend event for front-end and full-stack developers globally. As Diamond sponsors, TinyMCE was thrilled to contribute deeply to the dialogue, providing technical insights and demonstrating powerful integrations. Hosted online and completely for FREE, the frontend conference bridged the continuity between its predecessors like Vue.js Nation and Vue.js Forge, enhancing the learning landscape for developers everywhere. 

TinyMCE’s Highlights at Frontend Nation

Building a Better LMS, One Tiny Block at a Time.

In this talk, Brad discussed how TinyMCE’s modular solution can streamline the development process, enabling quick integration of both basic and advanced features. Brad also showcased how using TinyMCE plugins can enhance security, accessibility, and even incorporate AI-powered solutions like the AI Assistant, making web apps from LMS to CMS to SaaS more robust and user-friendly.
