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. PWAs are already working for platforms in Sub-Saharan Africa, like Konga, an e-commerce platform in Nigeria, based on a recent case study.
To help developers better understand the experiences that combine the best of the web and the best of apps, we’ll be hosting our 1st ever Progressive Web Apps event series in Sub-Saharan Africa. This will take place across 3 cities in Africa: Nairobi (15th August), Lagos (18th August), and Johannesburg (22nd August).
Come engage in talks and hands-on codelabs covering Progressive Web Apps (PWA) with a focus on Instant and Offline Mobile Apps with Service Workers, Deep Engagements on Installable Apps and Push Notifications and much more. The workshop will provide you with the skills and resources necessary to start building your own Progressive Web App.
This is a technical event, with multiple sessions on Progressive Web Apps, facilitated by Googlers and Web Technologies Experts from around the world. The target audience is top developers from agencies, publishers, startups and indie developers, focusing on web apps / web sites.
