How To Make Your Website A Progressive Web App (And Why You Might Want To)

For years, web developers and app developers have been siloed, looking at each other with jealousy. How come these people get to do push notifications? How come these people have such a simple build process? And why can’t we all just work with the same codebase?

A PWA (Progressive Web App) marries all these needs together, starting with a run-of-the-mill website and adding features as they’re appropriate. The most interesting part: You can start with a website you’ve been working on right now.

In this talk, Lemon will take you through the process of starting with a simple HTML website add add features like caching, notifications, desktop installation and offline mode to create an app that’s as interesting and dynamic as you’d want it to be.

Does things to the internet. The internet does things to him as well.

With a day job as the development lead for a mid-sized Minneapolis agency, Lemon spends his work time making websites for money and his free time making websites for no money.

He's created over a dozen gimmick sites like damn.dog, pretend.world and greatsex.tips. He also hosts a podcast that looks at some of the internet's weirder subcultures. It is not safe for your work, unless you work somewhere really cool.
