ABOUT THE SPEAKERS Michael Solati Developer Advocate for Typeform. Organizer of GDG Berkeley. Building (Progressive) Web Apps: Most people think if they want to build an app they must build two apps for Android or iOS. The web has become so much more powerful in what we can do, though.

While tools like Ionic are allowing developers to make beautiful web apps that look and behave so much like native application with their UI and offline capabilities; so much so that users might not even tell the difference. Even cooler is now you can install apps from the web onto your phone like a native app. The web is advancing at an unprecedented rate, and you should be taking advantage of this. Learn what makes a progressive web app so progressive and some of the tooling you can use to build amazing (web) apps!
