Web App Workshop
Web Platform is amazing. It is becoming more and more performant, feature-rich while keeping its universal nature. We call “progressive” the web apps we build using the latest browser APIs, 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.
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. This is not about hitting the numbers though – this training is meant to provide extra value for our users, but 100% score in the Lighthouse is also guaranteed!
Last but not least, in order to help you get ready for the next steps, I will speak about what’s coming to PWA-related APIs and what’s on Workbox’s roadmap.
