Leeds Frontend are excited to relaunch with a bang! All welcome to this free event. Come along for a good time, listen to some interesting talks and mingle with fellow like minded people over a slice of pizza or two.

Luke Bonaccorsi (@codefoodpixels):
Painting Pixels With Web Bluetooth
Bluetooth is everywhere nowadays, you can find it in door locks, heart rate monitors and even in forks. However, this usually means that we also have an app for each device taking up space on our phones, no matter how infrequently we use it. Wouldn’t it be great if we could just use the web?

With Web Bluetooth, we can control these devices through the browser! In this talk we’ll take a look at the basics of Web Bluetooth, the Bluetooth Low Energy GATT layer and how to use these through JavaScript using the practical example of how I built an interactive LED pixel display. By the end, I hope you’ll be inspired to try controlling your Bluetooth devices through the browser!
