Web Audio API: The Practical Parts

Ruth John

Ever scanned through the Web Audio API docs and not even known where to begin? Feel as though you want to try this cool tech but not sure you can use it in your everyday development? Or do you just want to have some fun programming something more creative for a change?

This is the workshop for you. We start at the beginning and discover the most useful parts of the Web Audio API. We learn to load sounds, create them, play and mute them. We'll take a look at spatialisation (sound in 3D space) and how the API allows us to better control time in JavaScript.

When we've got all the practical techniques under our belts we'll add some hardware (provided) into the mix!

Build an Online Store with Shopify and Liquid.

Tiffany Tse

In this workshop, Tiffany Tse, a Front End Developer Advocate at Shopify, will share practical workflow tips, tricks and techniques that will help you modify, develop, and build Shopify themes. We'll help you get started with Shopify theming by showing you how your existing knowledge and skill sets are transferable.

Shopify's ecommerce solution already powers over 500,000 stores across the globe. Knowing how to customize themes on Shopify gives web designers and developers a desirable set of skills that they can use to grow their business.

This workshop will take you through a deep dive into Shopify theming. We'll cover the workflow of a typical project, how to create development stores, and the components of a Shopify theme. You'll learn how to edit a theme both through the online editor, and how to set up locally so you can use your own tooling. The workshop will cover how to make alternative templates for your store's products and pages, create theme settings for clients, and how to build sections.
