  • Raphael Kubo da Costa is a software engineer at Intel, where he's been part of the Web Technologies team for the last 7 years. He started out by working on WebKit back in 2010, but has since switched to working on Blink and the Chromium browser. He strives to make the web a better place by expanding its capabilities. During his talk, Raphael will share more about Project Fugu, a public, cross-company collaboration designed to close the capabilities gap with native applications by specifying and shipping new APIs ranging from raw clipboard access to Web Serial to WebNFC. This talk covers Fugu in more detail, shows how easy and important it is for everyone to contribute (an API is nothing without users!) and showcases a few new APIs the Web Technologies team at Intel has been involved in.
  • Fokke Zandbergen is a full-stack engineer at Zapier. Over the past 7 years, Zapier has integrated or helped integrate over 1,500 apps. In this talk, Fokke will share what makes an API easy to work with and how they manage to process millions of requests to and from these apps, in a secure way, every day.
