While there has been a lot of progress on the Edge front, many will argue there is still a lot of work a head for developers to bring Microsoft’s latest internet browser up to par.

Perhaps, no more aware of that is Microsoft who is holding its next Microsoft Edge Web Summit on September 13, 2017. The free session packed event will be focusing on new tools coming to Edge development as well as the building of new APIs, Progressive Web apps on Windows, adding payment and biometric authentication to sites and a whole lot more.

“This year, we’re introducing a new Hallway Track, where you can meet with engineers from across Microsoft to solve real problems today and build invaluable connections for the future. Looking to reduce a troublesome performance issue? Struggling with best practices for accessibility? Eager to get started with WebVR? Curious about Bash on Windows? We’ve got you covered. The Hallway Track connects you one-to-one with Microsoft engineers throughout the day for tangible results you can take back to your site or app.”

For anyone interested in developing for the 500 million plus potential Windows 10 users who have access to Edge, this free summit should be a gold mine of information. Also, for those who can’t attend in person, Microsoft’s developer centric Channel 9 will also be streaming the event as well as hosting recorded sessions after the fact.
