Talk - Rethinking desktop applications with progressive web apps

Progressive web apps describe a whole new set of awesome browser features that enable completely new ways of interacting with applications whitout the need of intalling anything right through the browser.

While originally intended as an alternative to mobile apps, we are seeing more and more desktop apps that rely on the web platform. Figma, Squoosh, Clipchamp and the whole Google Office Suite are just a few examples of a growing number of completely web-based desktop applications.

In this talk, we will focus on some of the new and exciting browser capabilities (like the File Handling API, File System Access API, Local Font Access, etc.) that allow us to create rich web applications that make our daily lives easier. Of course, including tangible examples and an outlook on the browser roadmap.
