APIs: Now & in the Future

A session at UpFront Mini

Tuesday 6th October, 2015

In this talk, Chris Mills discusses the historic problems with web apps and which technologies are stepping up to fill the holes. This includes device APIs such as Web Activities, Camera, device orientation and nfc, offline apps (which are finally looking realistic thanks to service workers), installable apps, and high quality games and other immersive high performance experiences using such features as Web audio API, Pointer lock, asm.js and Emscripten.
