Imagine if you will, your manager asks you to develop a new desktop application. You're so used to web development that you don't know how to get started. What should you do? Dig out your old VB 6 books or learn a new technology? Better yet, keep those web skills and use Electron. Electron is the cross-platform application shell GitHub originally built for the Atom editor. This session will equip you with the starting skills to set up your development environment, generate your starter project, and build some business logic. You will also start building a killer UX with the Photon control kit.
