Web Directions Conferences for web and digital professionals

Code ’19 Feature session: In conversation with a browser – Phil Nash

As we countdown to Code ’19, our front end development conference, we’re highlighting great sessions you can expect.

If you like what you see, then why no get along? It’s in Melbourne on June 20 and 21, but always sells out, so don’t delay. And use the code ‘blog’ to get a free upgrade to a silver ticket when you register for a classic, giving you all the conference videos as a bonus!

In conversation with a browser

Voice assistants have taken off, but can we build our own with web technologies? I’ve been building bots for other platforms, but I wanted to investigate how well one could work in the browser. Can we talk to a web application and get results?

Let’s dive into the Web Speech API, speech synthesis, and conversation design. We’ll find out whether browsers can be virtual assistants or virtually useless.

We make events for the professionals shaping Australia's digital future
