Jack’s first girlfriend was Swift. His second one was Xamarin. He was shocked when he saw how sexy PWA’s were on his last mobile project.

Progressive Web Apps are now supported on all popular mobile platforms and have some serious benefits over native mobile apps… and of course old school mobile responsive websites!

Jack will also tell you the secrets of when he chooses to build Progressive Web App’s vs. React Native Apps vs. Xamarin Apps.

Learn how to build your first PWA and how to easily turn your existing web app into a PWA. Dive into the lifecycle of a Service Worker by seeing one configured from scratch and discover some excellent tools for quickly setting up a fully offline Progressive Web App.
