Subway box sandwiches provided

 

Join Joe to see how you can make your Web Development efforts compatible with the new “super-fast” Microsoft Edge browser, the new default browser for Windows 10. Edge uses a “Modern Web Standards” engine, so come see how to make your HTML/JavaScript/CSS programming effort compatible with Edge and also how to take advantage of its extensibility.

 

For web developers, Microsoft Edge brings an all new rendering engine, built to be interoperable with the modern web. Microsoft Edge is a clean break from the past focusing on interoperability with modern web standards and browsers so you can write modern markup once for all browsers. Microsoft Edge and its new engine will be updated as a service with Windows 10, so you can be sure that everyone browsing your site or using your web app with Microsoft Edge is always on the same page.
