Details

We have a special event planned this month: we’ve been invited to help throw Jason Grigsby a book release party for his upcoming A Book Apart title, Progressive Web Apps! Jason will present a talk on PWAs, there will be good food and drinks, lots of good people to talk to, and plenty of opportunity to congratulate Jason on the publication of this exciting new title (which, incidentally, you can pre-order right now: https://abookapart.com/products/progressive-web-apps).

Please note the change in both date and venue! We'll be meeting on Thursday, November 15th at Uncorked Studios on SE Stark St instead of our usual venue.

Talk Details

“The Case for Progressive Web Apps”

There’s been a lot of discussion about how to build a progressive web app but not a lot of discussion about why businesses should invest in them. Better user experience, faster performance, more engagement—Jason Grigsby explains why progressive web apps are no-brainers for most websites.
