Why

Web browsers have become an operating system in their own right. As developers push the limits of the browser, a new category of software development is emerging, distinct from both traditional web development and desktop app development.

We call this nascent field browsertech. We’ve talked to developers across different industries who face the same challenges and re-discover the same patterns. We realized it’s high time to get folks together to share knowledge and build an NYC browsertech community.
