We have some amazing talks planned for you!

Our lineup of speakers:

Speaker - Simeon Vincent

Title: Evolving the Chrome Extensions Platform

Description: Chances are you that you’ve installed for your browser. If you’ve done so in the past few years, an extension is probably based on Chromium’s current extensions platform, Manifest V2. The Chromium believes the Manifest V2 platform has a number of issues with respect to privacy, security, performance, and ergonomics and plans to address these issues by evolving the platform with Manifest V3. In this session, we’ll dive into some of the biggest issues with the Manifest V2 platform, where we’d like the platform to be, and how Manifest V3 will help us get there.

Speaker - Aaron Ma

Topic - Machine Learning in The Browser (Angular + TensorFlow.js)

Description: More and more apps need machine learning. In this 20 minute session, you’ll gain hands-on experience with machine learning and create an amazing TensorFlow.js powered app trained in your very own browser.

Speaker - Alex Eagle

Title: State of JavaScript build tooling: layering

Description: Each bundler, test runner, and devserver is forced to grow a complete ecosystem of plugins to support the tools you need to transform your source files into a running application. This results in a governance problem: who maintains the complete build toolchain when an army of volunteers writes the plugins? It also inhibits innovation, since any new language/feature needs a plugin for each tool and any new tool needs plugins for every language/feature. Alex will talk about our plans to use Bazel as a build orchestrator to decouple tools from the toolchain.

Hope to see you there!
