Building a better login with the credential management API

Workshop abstract

Login pages are probably the single type of page that users on the web interact with more than any other. In recent years the sign in experience has changed with the advent of federation via social networks, but whether a user has to type an email address and password or click a link and be redirected via Facebook, the process still interrupts the journey.

The Credential Management API, a new W3C standard designed by Mike West at Google, is an attempt to help streamline this process at the user agent level. This workshop will investigate the new API and explore how we can use it to progressively enhance customer journeys in the apps we build.
