Using browser extensions and the Cloud to save the world

2019 was the year of forest fires, melting ice caps and the warnings of a 17 year old Swedish girl. In 2020 we’re going to help turn this around and make Greta proud.

How? With the power of web technologies! Our team has developed a browser extension that lets users plant trees, without having to pay a cent.

During this talk we will walk through the process of designing and developing our application, the challenges we had and of course demonstrate a working implementation. At the end, you will know all about the possibilities of these kind of applications and how to build one yourself.
