Have you ever wondered why all the top companies are developing their desktop versions of applications? Spotify, Teams, Skype, WhatsApp, VS Code, etc. All these modern programs use one framework and that is Electron. But why? What's in it that WPF or JavaFX doesn't have? A small spoiler - JavaScript. But this is not the only thing.

So in this speech we:

    1. Let's remember the history of origin and understand who really maintains this product
    2. Let's look under the hood and see how it really works
    3. Let's talk about why VS Code has so many processes
    4. Let's deal with the main killer features
    5. Let's evaluate the framework cons

This topic is suitable for everyone who is already familiar with JS and is interested in desktop applications.
