Electron - Building Desktop Apps like a Web Dev

About The topic

Web technologies and javascript frameworks have exploded over the past few years. They promise unprecedented levels of productivity, beautiful user interfaces, and boat loads of hipster street cred. But sometimes you need a desktop app, and you’re back to fretting about cross platform and writing in different frameworks than you’re used to. Enter electron: a framework for building cross platform desktop apps using web technologies. Now you can leverage your existing knowledge (and potentially even your existing code base) to develop great looking desktop apps.

In this presentation, you’ll learn how to get up and going building awesome apps with the electron framework

AWS ONLINE TALKS: Uninterrupted Business

Cloud security at AWS is the highest priority. As an AWS customer, you will benefit from a data center and network architecture built to meet the requirements of the most security-sensitive organisations.
An advantage of the AWS cloud is that it allows customers to scale and innovate, while maintaining a secure environment. Customers pay only for the services they use, meaning that you can have the security you need, but without the upfront expenses, and at a lower cost than in an on-premises environment.

Register to attend our weekly online talks to explore cloud security and compliance topics and get your questions answered during live Q&A.
