Progressive Web Apps - the what, why and how
Progressive web applications enable key features such as instant download, offline viewing, responsive navigation and push notifications, thereby bridging the gap between mobile and web experiences. In this talk, I talk about what makes progressive web apps so popular and how to develop one.
