Abstract

PWAs made us completely rethink what is possible on the web - and it’s time to do it yet again! With WebBluetooth and WebUSB we now have the ability to directly interact with millions of devices with just a few lines of javascript. In a fun and hands on talk, we go over how these new APIs work, and even implement our own device handlers all without ever having to have written a single line of code for bluetooth or usb devices before!
