Progressive Web Apps (PWA) was announced by Google in 2015. This format of creating mobile websites attracted attention due to the relative ease of development and almost instantaneous interaction with the user. As early as May 2016, at the Google I / O Developer Conference, The Washington Post demonstrated its mobile hybrid site-application.
What is PWA? You can perceive this as a site built using web technologies, but which interacts with the user as an application. The advances in the development of browsers, cache and Push-interfaces allowed installing the application on the home screen directly from the browser, receiving pop-up notifications and even working offline.
Progressive Web Apps are spreading across the web faster than anyone could have predicted. Two years ago, developers needed to do most of the plumbing themselves to take advantage of the new APIs available in the browser, but today we have powerful and robust tools that can help developers of any background to quickly ship more engaging applications. In this video, you learn about: best practices for PWAs that you should be taking advantage of, the tools that exist to assist developers coming from a wide variety of backgrounds, the philosophies and visions behind these tools, and practical tips for getting started.
