#desktop apps

Desktop apps are applications that are designed to run on a desktop computer, as opposed to running in an internet browser or on a mobile device. They are usually written in languages such as C++ or Java, but with the rise of JavaScript, some desktop apps are now being written in JavaScript. These apps allow users to access data and services stored on their computer, as well as providing a more interactive experience than a web page.

Observability Matters: Enhancing Performance of our Node Application with OpenTelemetry
Have you ever considered that when we encounter terms like observability and reliability, our initial instinct is usually to attribute them solely to SRE concerns? Yet, upon closer examination, one may realize that actually implementing observability is, in essence, more aligned with the domain of developers. After all, developers are the ones who directly implement the actual logic into our existing codebase, and who better to understand and debug their code than the developers themselves? Through this session, we will emphasize on understanding the importance of observability specifically from a developer's perspective. Let's explore some best practices that help us effectively debug the performance of our Node application and how the inclusion of open source frameworks like OpenTelemetry could be beneficial to us.

Tauri Foundations and Futures
Tauri is a rust-based, security-first, open-source application construction framework built on the philosophy of shipping better projects without compromising on our climate goals. This talk will introduce key components and benchmarks of the stable release of the fully-audited framework. Further it will discuss its future as a means of not only delivering desktop and mobile apps, but also its mission of backfitting servo in order to make a fully fledged all-platform webview provider. Finally, we will present our award for "2022's most secure modern web-framework" in the context of webview-based Tauri apps.
