The Web Bites Back

The rise of mobile apps has had an enormous impact on how people create, consume and share information, how they play games, how they organize their lives. But in the rush to build bigger and better mobile apps, we’ve forgotten one lesson we should have learned from the rise of the Internet in the 1990s: open is better. Meanwhile, the web platform has been undergoing a quiet revolution. New technologies such as web payment, progressive enhancement, off-line use, save-to-homescreen and push notifications are creating a revolution in web applications bringing the best aspects of mobile apps to the web while still keeping the web webby.

Building Off-Line Webapps

As we spend so much of our time on mobile phones, using them to look for different things - either a new scientific discovery or the next recipe to try out - our expectations from the (mobile) web have grown exponentially. With Progressive Web Apps, developers can deliver now amazing app-like experiences to users that work offline. In this trade off, how much should we use caching and other storage techniques, to substantially improve the user experience? We will talk about how Service Workers help us become connectivity-independent, some good and helpful examples and also our lessons learned.
