  • Generic Sensor API and Progressive Widgets Architecture

    Welcome to the most progressive meetup in Sydney. Talk 1. Starts 6:30pm Jessica Claire Edwards presents "Accessing Sensors via the Web: An Introduction to the Generic Sensor API" The Generic Sensor API is a specification that provides browser vendors a framework for implementing APIs accessing hardware features. What does that mean for developers? For the first time, it's possible to play with a whole new range of sensors, such as the accelerometer, gyroscope and magnetometer. Previously, these sensors have been exposed via high level APIs (e.g. Device Motion or Device Orientation APIs), which work great for specific use cases but fall down when you want to use the information in unintended ways. This talk will cover the current state of the Generic Sensor API, the APIs built on top of it, and how you can get started using sensors via the web! Talk 2. Starts 7:15pm Zouhir Chahoud presents "PWA: Progressive Widgets Architecture" How to progressively enhance enterprise CMS with modern JavaScript UI widgets. Building a client side widgets and deploying it as a static file using Preact.

How does it enable developers to develop web applications with offline capabilities? To help answer these questions, one should look to its predecessor: the Web Worker API.
