We’re happy to be kicking off a series of blog posts featuring some of the best presentations of TrailheaDX ’18 as rated by attendees! The first of this ICYMI (In Case You Missed It) series from #TDX18 focuses on Lightning Components. Lightning Components are reusable units of your Lightning app. They make up a UI framework so you can develop dynamic apps for desktop and mobile devices. Therefore, having strong Lightning Components is important for any Lightning app you build.

At TrailheaDX ’18, we had a bunch of well-received sessions on building base and custom Lightning Components. Check out these five recordings to find out about all the different ways you can develop Lightning Components for your apps!
