Join Gravity IT Resources and us on Tuesday, April 23rd, at 6:00 PM in the Redwood Conference Room of the Microsoft Charlotte Office. Progressive Web Applications (PWA) challenges us to reimagine what a web app is, and it's capabilities. In this talk we will cover the what, why, and how of PWAs. We will take a look at some popular PWAs and see how innovators are using PWAs to address complex business needs. We will also dissect a PWA to learn how to build these new apps and how you may be able to leverage them for your existing applications.

The meeting presenter is Adam Vaden.

Adam is the Co-Owner and Chief Technologist of V2 Tools, an emerging software consulting firm. He has a passion for software and is always experimenting with the latest technology. His current focus is on Kubernetes and bringing the platform to the arm ecosystem. Adam has experience architecting and building applications that range from integrating custom control plane software to distributed real-time data processing systems.

The meeting sponsor is Gravity IT Resources.

Gravity IT Resources wants to pay you for what you already do in referring highly endorsed colleagues for new job opportunities. To help us better serve clients, we also leverage AI and crowdsourcing techniques to identify elite talent in the IT ecosystem. How does it work? Gravity incents referrals by sharing a meaningful portion of our perm placement fees and contract revenue with the referrer.
