“The application cache is a douchebag”
- Jake Archibald

Web apps can be pretty cool, but we could be making them even cooler. Browsers are leveling up by adding functionality to enable a user experience akin to using a native mobile application.

Enter the new buzz-phrase of the moment… Progressive Web Apps!

This talk aims to share knowledge gained from Dan’s time at FullStack 2016 conference, and the lessons learned from implementing the features into real web applications. The goal is to provide more than just a high level overview; you should be able to walk away confident that you can implement these features into your own web apps straight away.

You’ll find out why you should care, what’s available, see a demo and see what features are offered in browsers.
