Are Progressive Web Apps the future of Web Development?

Presentation at WebDevCon, Berlin.


1. Summary

Progressive Web Apps or PWAs is a new way to build performance-driven websites. It even competes with native - it gives you an app-like experience, offline support, and push notifications. A few weeks ago Twitter announced twitter light which is a PWA. Many users (including myself) uninstalled the app and are using the PWA instead because it's fast and intuitive to use. There are other examples such as Aliexpress, which is Alibaba's retail website, and Uber.
