JavaScript Fullstack Day - Cross-Platform

Session Abstract

This talk is part of the “JavaScript Fullstack Day” Workshop at the International JavaScript Conference 2021 in Munich – a collaboration of different Speakers to cover the modern full programming stack. Each talk, provided by an expert, covers particular tooling or part of the stack. In this talk, Max Schulte demonstrates how to create a cross-platform app with Capacitor. With modern technology, it is possible to target different platforms with only one app. Capacitor enables us, developers, to deploy a once written web-app to iOS, Android, and Windows and how to create an electron app. Max Schulte also shows the benefits and drawbacks of this approach and how modern tooling creates a fluent and productive development experience.
