The future web standards are enabling Web USB and Web Bluetooth, which allows device makers to use a common web-based API across platforms.
In this workshop, you will learn the basics of Web USB and Web Bluetooth and how to use Javascript to read and write to supported devices.
The workshop consists of 2 parts:
- A 1-hour introduction to Web Bluetooth and Web USB, followed by
- A 2-hour hands-on session, where groups of 2 (max 3) will choose a task and implement it.

This workshop is for any software developers, who have web/javascript experience, that would like to learn more about these standards and have a hands-on experience.
