Add to my program

The Web is evolving into a universal application platform. More and more, anything you can do in a native application, you can do on the Web. And your web application can run on any device with a modern browser! We'll take a whirlwind tour of new web APIs from the Filesystem API to Bluetooth, geolocation, contacts access, and face recognition. We'll conclude with a look at how Web Audio and WebAssembly are enabling an abundance of new collaborative music creation apps.
