Hey, thanks for the interest in this post, but just letting you know that it is over 3 years old, so the content in here may not be accurate.

I recently blogged about my experience at MS Edge Web Summit. On the back of this I was invited to speak at ALT.NET Sydney to share some of the things I’d learnt about. I covered off three topics, the Payment Request API, Sonar and some new features in F12.

For the Payment Request API I created some demos:

  1. A basic demo
  2. A demo using multiple payment methods
  3. Requesting shipping address
  4. Dynamic shipping options
  5. “Lazy loading” shipping options

Note: These demos are purely client side and don’t submit card details or anything, you can see the code for each page by following the commit link in their footers.

If you want to learn what the Payment Request API is about check out this article.

I also cover off Sonar, which is a linting tool that’s great for ensuring you’re website is running as best as it can be (yep, I haven’t got it integrated into my blog yet, one day 😛).

The final topic was what’s new in F12 for Edge 16, but I was really pressed for time by then, so you’ll get more out of Jacob Rossi’s MS Edge Web Summit talk.

If you want to watch my talk it’s up on YouTube.
