Details

Damian Montero will be stepping out of his normal roll as our Organizer and back into the roll as a presenter.

Your website users are always looking at your website and it's easy (with a little help from web sockets) to notify them if they're on your site and there's an event or message you'd like to send them.

But what happens when they leave your website. Or worse. What happens when they no longer have a browser open on their computers or mobile devices and you need to communicate to them something urgent?

This is when Web Notifications come in. You're use to seeing your email client, or Facebook or WhatsApp notify you of a new event or message and being able to click on that notification to go straight into the app

Websites have been able to notify you just the same (for a while now) And not only can they notify you when you've surf OFF their websites, but even when your browser is closed.

Damian (https://twitter.com/damianmontero) will be showing us how it works and what we need to setup on our own websites by explaining us what is really happening behing the curtains, with a fully working demo that you will ALL be able to try yourself.
Along with a Github repo (https://github.com/thedamian/Web-Push-Example) to get all the code yourself.
