Microsoft opens up Edge Web Summit 2016 registration

Mark Coppock

Microsoft has been working hard to make Edge a successful browser replacement for the aging and non-standards compliant Internet Explorer. 2015 was a big year for Edge development, and 2016 is looking to be even bigger. Today, Microsoft opened up registration for the Edge Web Summit 2016, where developers can go to learn more about what’s happening with Edge today and into the future.

Microsoft Edge Web Summit is a free conference organized and staffed by the engineers building Microsoft Edge and Chakra. We’ll be presenting a full day of technical talks covering the EdgeHTML rendering engine, the open-source Chakra JavaScript engine, and developer tools. You’ll hear what’s next for the web platform that powers Windows 10, straight from the engineers who build it, and you’ll get an inside look at powerful techniques and new tools to make your life as a developer just a little bit easier.

The Edge Web Summit is being held in San Francisco on April 4, 2016. The day’s in-depth technical sessions will be followed by an evening of “learning, making new friends, and having fun, with a few surprise guests and plenty of opportunities to network and unwind.” Sounds like a good mix of productivity and fun.
