A Journey Through Browser API Space & Time

A session at Over the Air 2015

Saturday 26th September, 2015

12:30pm to 1:30pm (GMT)

The world of Web (or Browser) API’s is growing. We have familiar ones we’ve all seen and used, such as Geolocation and getUserMedia, but what about all the others. What about gaming API’s, device API's, API’s to interact with the operating system! Don’t panic, after this talk from Ruth, you’ll be well on your way to feeling a lot calmer about what’s on the horizon. We’ll cover a whole range of Web API’s, why we have them, what we can use them for and most important the code to make it all work.

Added to that, if you stick around, we'll end the talk with a fantastic light show mash up, using *all* the cool APIs, including webMIDI, web Audio, web animation and more!
