This course provides you with the knowledge and skills to develop fully responsive, browser compatible, mobile-first, connectivity-independent, native app-like, reliable, and fast-serving apps that run on the Web platform.
What if you could give users deep and engaging experiences of a mobile application while having the reach of a website? In the process also remove tedious steps such as installations via an application store? What if users land on your website and they have an experience similar to using a native mobile app, along with all the perks of a real app such as push notifications, splash screens, and the capability to work offline? This new breed of web applications is known as progressive web applications (PWAs).
