Talk: Progressive Web Apps and offline development

There is a lot of talk about Progressive Web Apps at the moment. It is a hot topic in the JavaScript community.

In this talk, we will briefly explore what a PWA is and how to build one. We will look at the benefits of PWA's and more importantly their limitations.

We then look a bit deeper at the technologies behind PWA's such as Service Workers, in particular we will look at the mechanics behind Service Workers, and how they will affect your back-end builds.

Finally, we will look at offline development, the offline first life-cycle and the tools and technologies needed to start building offline applications. Comparing offline storage mechanisms, and their limitations.

This talk is great for anyone building web-based applications, in any language, or anyone wanting to learn more about PWA's and offline development.
