[Workshop] PWA: Using the Web Platform Power to the Fullest

Web Platform is amazing. It becomes 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 the user experience. On this workshop, we’ll focus on what Workbox as a network tasks automation library contributes to the PWA idea.

During the full day of training you will learn about: PWA concept pillars, Service Worker API fundamentals, current platform’s PWA support (and workarounds when needed), and Workbox library - the industry standard in the automation of PWA tasks. I share lots of practical tips & tricks, both technical and UX, review real-life PWA examples, explain how to avoid common pitfalls, and how to deal with edge cases.

On the practical side, I empower you to build a Progressive Web Application. We start from the “regular” application, and in the form of discrete, documented steps I guide you on 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 by offline experience, optimized networking and push notifications. We are not about hitting the numbers – we are about providing the extra value for our users, but 100% score in the Lighthouse is also guaranteed!

After all, for you to get prepared for the next steps, I introduce what’s new coming to PWA-related APIs and what’s on Workbox roadmap.
