Building PWA with ASP.NET Core - Kristóf Czimer

Progressive Web Application (PWA) is a technology that is capable of delivering engaging user experiences on all devices such as Mobiles, Tablets and desktop PCs. With the help of service workers the application can rely on the network as an opt-in feature. The capability of working offline enables PWAs to start up fast, and the user to browse the contents reliably without the app breaking due to a connection error. The look and feel of these applications is native-like, yet enables developers to develop the application without the need to learn native programming languages to the device.

In this presentation following the introduction to what PWAs are and how to create one, we will discuss the limitations regarding what these application can and can not do. Since the technology is quite new, there are some challenges in the different browsers to support PWAs. We will discuss some tricks and tweaks needed to have the application deliver the same native-like experience on all browsers and operating systems.

We will discuss building a REST API with ASP .Net Core and how it can be integrated with a PWA using a JavaScript client side library (or framework services such as AngularJS, Angular, React etc). The .NET applications can provide the necessary data to be cached on the client side. We will also discuss additional libraries that can provide duplex communication between server and the PWA client and ease the use of cache on different devices.
