🎤 Raphael Cubo da Costa, "Coming up in Chrome: Project Fugu and its new Web APIs"

Project Fugu is a public, cross-company collaboration to close the
capabilities gap with native applications by specifying and shipping new
APIs, ranging from raw clipboard access to Web Serial to WebNFC. This
talk covers Fugu in more detail, shows how easy and important it is for
everyone to contribute (an API is nothing without users!) and showcases
a few new APIs the Web Technologies team at Intel has been involved in.

Raphael is a software engineer at Intel, where he's been part of the Web
Technologies team for the last 7 years. He started out by working on
WebKit back in 2010, but has since switched to working on Blink and the
Chromium browser, and just tries to make the web a better place by
expanding its capabilities.

🎤 Fokke Zandbergen, Full-Stack engineer at Zapier.
Fokke couldn't join us on the previous event, but he's back this time with a lot to tell :)

"Lessons from integrating 1,500 APIs"
Over the past 7 years, we have integrated or helped integrate over 1,500 apps with Zapier. In this talk, we'll share what makes an API easy to work with and how we manage to process millions of requests to and from these apps, in a secure way, every day.
