Progressive web apps (PWAs) are the new hot thing everyone’s talking about. These mobile-friendly websites that can do almost everything native apps can are what your next batch of incoming students are going to expect. They combine maximum reach with functionality previously reserved only for native apps.
PWAs are built with web technologies you’re probably already familiar with, but as usual, things are not quite as simple as they seem.
This half-day workshop will cover what a progressive web app is and how you can update or create new PWAs utilizing common caching techniques. You will also learn about the essential requirements of a progressive web app including https, a valid web manifest, and a registered service worker.
The goal is to learn how you can leverage the traditional website architecture you’re already familiar with to start building the progressive web apps your stakeholders want.
