6:30 pm, "Electron : Cross-Platform Desktop Apps Meet the Web" with Brian Sletten
For the last 20-30 years, there has been a never-ending set of solutions for building cross-platform desktop applications. Most of them suck. Electron is one that doesn't.
It is a new solution that forms the basis of the Atom Editor, Microsoft's Visual Studio Code, the Slack app and more.
Come see what happens when you combine the best of the Web, Node.js and Chromium to provide attractive, modern, flexible, useful, consistent cross-platform desktop applications.
