In this talk, learn about the myriad of ways that Chrome is dramatically expanding the power of applications on the web.

Qt recently added web support thanks to WebAssembly and this talk will give you an overview of why being on the web is powerful and what features you get access to.

Learn how WebAssembly lets you run native code on the web, how PWAs let your web app feel like a true native app, and how advanced APIs like file system access close the capability gap between web and native applications. This talk will only touch briefly on Qt specifically but will be useful to any developer thinking about bringing their application to the web.
