Lightning talks

The schedule has breaks for lunch, snacks, and drinks. But if you're watching the livestream, it might not be lunch/snack/drinktime wherever you are.

To cater for this, we're going to fill the breaks with livestream-exclusive lightning talks – compact presentations about various parts of the web platform.

If you're planning to attend in person, you're not missing out. All lightning talks will be available later on the Chrome Developers YouTube channel.


Have you ever wanted to ask the Chrome team a question? Maybe you want more detail about a topic, or you are wondering how to use a particular feature?

Tweet us your best #AskChrome questions in the lead-up to the Chrome Dev Summit, then tune into the livestream where the Chrome team will answer questions live - on the air!


The sandbox is a dedicated space to explore, learn, and play with our latest products and platforms via interactive demos, physical installations, and more.


Folks at the venue will be able to take part in guided tutorials that involve a practical application of web platform features.

Office hours

Office hours are your chance to meet one-on-one with Chrome experts to ask all your technical questions.
