In this talk, we will explore how the Browser Rendering API can automate browser tasks, freeing developers from repetitive manual work. We will begin with an overview of Cloudflare Workers and how they enable running JavaScript at the edge. Then, we will discuss browser automation in detail, covering how to interact with the DOM, fill out forms, and scrape data from web pages. We will showcase real-world examples of how browser automation with Cloudflare Workers can improve the user experience of web applications, increase productivity, and automate tasks, such as generating screenshots and PDFs of web pages, testing web applications, and running performance audits. At the end of this talk, attendees will gain a better understanding of how to use the Browser Rendering API to automate browser tasks and take their web development skills to the next level.

React 18 introduces new APIs for rendering applications asynchronously on the server, enabling a simpler model for architecting and shipping user interfaces. When deployed on edge networking platforms like Cloudflare Workers, we can get dramatic performance and user experience improvements in our applications. In this talk, Sunil will demo and walk through this new model of writing React applications, with some insight into the implications for data fetching, styling, and overall direction of the React ecosystem.

Pushing the Limits of Video Encoding in Browsers With WebCodecs
Top Content
High quality video encoding in browsers have traditionally been slow, low-quality and did not allow much customisation. This is because browsers never had a native way to encode videos leveraging hardware acceleration. In this talk, I’ll be going over the secrets of creating high-quality videos in-browsers efficiently with the power of WebCodecs and WebAssembly. From video containers to muxing, audio and beyond, this talk will give you everything you need to render your videos in browsers today!

You know that annoying bug? The one that doesn’t show up locally? And no matter how many times you try to recreate the environment you can’t reproduce it? You’ve gone through the breadcrumbs, read through the stack trace, and are now playing detective to piece together support tickets to make sure it’s real.
Join Sentry developer Ryan Albrecht in this talk to learn how developers can use Session Replay - a tool that provides video-like reproductions of user interactions - to identify, reproduce, and resolve errors and performance issues faster (without rolling your head on your keyboard).
