Pretty much everything you do via JavaScript in the browser - if it isn't a native JS instruction - is part of a Web API, even though you may not know it as such. I'll cover the concepts and dive into some of the more useful or interesting APIs, available abstractions, some sample code, and more, to help you make your front ends richer and more app-like. Unfortunately, not all of them are widely supported, or even well supported, some are experimental, and some aren't even on standards tracks - but depending on your use case it may be sufficient; plus, polyfills can often help. This will be a somewhat revised/improved version of the talk given at SANDcamp 2018.
