Progressive Web Application
Or a PWA is the de facto way to bring mobile and desktop functionality to your web application. In this course I take an ordinary web application and using simple online tools, create a progressive web application and deploy to the cloud. This application can then be downloaded on your desktop and or laptop. Progressive web applications allow developers a way to ship and deploy their applications without the need to pay Apple or Google for developer licenses. This lowers the barrier of entry for all developers around the world! Companies such as Twitter and Starbucks are already capitalizing on the benefits of progressive web applications and you can too after taking this course!
What Is The Benefit Of A PWA?
- Speed – PWAs load faster after initial load because all assets are cached locally.
- Discoverability – Since PWAs are web applications and contain a manifest.json they are easily indexed on search engines.
- App Like Experience – Since they take an offline first approach, progressive web applications feel and act like a native mobile app.
- Always Up To Date – No more waiting for pushed app updates like with Apple or Google. Send your updates to your server and all your clients get an instant update
- Installable – Get an app icon on your homescreen as if you downloaded from the app store
- And MORE
This course will show you how to convert your PWA into an APK with no coding required! Generate the source code, signed APK and cerfticate to upload to the Google Play Developer Console! Never have to worry about app store updates again because your app stays in sync with your PWA. Expland your audience and your reach at no additional developer cost!
