PWA Workshop

The Web platform is amazing. It is becoming more and more performant and feature-rich while keeping its universal nature. We call the web apps we build using the latest browser APIs "progressive", allowing us to achieve a totally new level of user experience. In this workshop, we’ll focus on what Angular, as a framework, contributes to the PWA concept. During the full day of training, you will learn about: PWA concept pillars, Service Worker API fundamentals, current platform’s PWA support (and workarounds when needed), and Workbox library – the industry standard in the automation of PWA tasks. I will share lots of practical tips & tricks, both technical and UX, review real-life PWA examples, explain how to avoid common pitfalls, and how to deal with edge cases. On the practical side, I will teach you how to build a Progressive Web Application. We start from the “regular” application, and in the form of discrete, documented steps, you will learn how to add PWA features one-by-one using Workbox. As a result, everyone will have a fully-featured, installable PWA ready to delight its users with its offline experience, optimized networking, and push notifications.
