Check out their latest talk at dotJS, Paris 2016.

19.30 Progressive Web Apps by Johannes Weber

There’s been a lot of talk lately about Progressive Web Apps. The main purpose is to provide an app-like user experience. For those who haven’t heard of them, progressive web apps aim to bridge the gap between the mobile web and native apps by providing things like the ability to install, provide offline support, run background processes and send push notifications.

What are the non-technical doubts about using it? How does it work? Is it worth to dig into PWA now?

Johannes Weber shows PWA in action and is intended to answer all these questions.

He is an adviser and developer in the field of web technologies spotlighted on JS. In his free time he loves to bring people together. He (co)-organizes JS Kongress Munich, AngularCamp Barcelona, the AngularJS and ReactJS Munich Meetup Groups.
