Progressive Web Applications

A session at University of Illinois Web Conference

Friday 7th April, 2017

11:00am to 12:00pm (CST)

Put your browser-based content or application on mobile users' home screen without needing a mobile app.

A revolution is coming in how we put our apps onto our users' mobile devices. Imagine if there was no need for an app store. Just a simple link on your existing website or web app that would allow the mobile user to install a locally independent web application right there on their phone just like a native app. With almost 100% access to native OS features such as notifications, user location, device orientation and "click-to-call." All while leveraging the browser platform that we're already so familiar with.

The shift that took us away from desktop apps to web apps is happening again on the phone. Develop your content or service application and get it onto users' home screen without any native code necessary.
