We will meet on Thursday, August 16th, 2018 at Modis' offices at 101 Bullitt Lane. Doors will open at 6:30pm and the presentations will begin sharply at 7:00 pm. Along with a great presentation, we'll have food and raffle prizes. Be sure to RSVP so we know how much food is needed. Afterwards, we go to BJ's Restaurant to continue the conversation.

Does it NEED to be PWA?
There is a lot of talk about Progressive Web Apps these days, but what apps actually need to be progressive? Maybe users don't NEED a push notification every time you post a picture of your pet. Maybe users will be fine WITHOUT having offline access to their list of favorite recipes. Let's talk about what kind of apps can really be benefited by the advancements of modern web technologies and in the end walk through how to spin one up.
