Web has come a long way vs native apps. Browser makers are adding plethora of APIs that are making the task of choosing web or native an obvious one. (PS:If you are a native or backend dev, Answer is web :) ) Talk will look at the progress web has made over the years.
Key takeway for most people is that you dont need native apps for most scenarios and get a short intro into new web APIs
It will cover 1. PWA 2.0 with Instalibility on various platforms | 2. Sharing via Web Share and Web Target api | 3. Payments via Request Payment and Payment Handler | 4. Communicate via Bluetooth, USB and NFC | 5. Hardware access via Generic Sensor API, Camera APIS | 6. Where Web lacks vs native apps on various platforms.
Any tech enthusiasts can attend. Knowledge of web or mobile dev would be a plus.
