Course Description

Users now expect app-like experiences from mobile sites. But how do developers make their web-based projects behave like native apps? Progressive web apps (PWAs) are the answer. They fit any form factor, can function offline, and feel like native apps - without the difficulty or expense of native app development. This course shows how to turn an existing website into a progressive web app using nothing more than Vanilla JavaScript. Instructor Tom Duffy explains how to build in offline capabilities, automated installation prompts, and notifications - features that will delight and engage your users. Plus, learn how to implement push notifications and provide features that even advanced platforms like iOS are missing.
