Progressive Web Apps are experiences that combine the best of the web and the best of apps. They load quickly, even on flaky networks, can re-engage with users by sending web push notifications, have an icon on the home screen and load as top-level, full screen experiences.
Please join us to learn about the future of the web with Progressive Web Apps, why they are important and how to build and deploy them effectively.
