"Superb presentation from a genuine domain expert. I learned a ton today."
Join BOTH Mike North and Steve Kinney as we learn about Progressive Web Applications and Offline. By coding along with us for this two day work shop, you will…
All of the content relies on libraries that work in both node.js and the browser.
Mike is a modern web consultant, and Staff Engineer at LinkedIn, where he works with the Web Frameworks team to maintain the company’s tech stack. Over his 18 years of experience as a professional developer, he’s had vast amounts of experience working with, extending and debugging over a dozen code editors and IDEs.
Steve is a senior front-end engineer at SendGrid. He is also the director emeritus and the founder of the front-end engineering program at the Turing School for Software and Design in Denver, Colorado—a non-profit developer training program. Steve is currently writing Electron in Action for Manning Publications.
Progressive Web Apps become superheroes when they can, while still providing a great baseline experience on less modern browsers. They're reliable, fast, engaging, and although they can do many of the things users expect from native apps, they don't take up a lot of space, or require a long install process.
In this workshop, we'll begin with a “classic" single page app, that's a bit bulky in size, has a slow initial load, doesn't work offline, and provides a very “basic" mobile web experience. We'll then enhance it in several ways, so that when key technologies are supported in your users' browsers, their experience ends up being substantially better!
First, we'll add any mobile-specific metadata to the app, and look at how we can use android studio and the iOS simulator to test out our improvements. In order to reduce our page weight a little bit, we'll discuss how to choose between image types like png and jpeg, and some recent advances in compression.
Next, we'll add a service worker, and apply a few caching strategies to ultimately allow our app to work offline! Additionally, we'll take advantage of IndexedDb, so that new data created on a mobile device can be stored as a structured record, available both in our application and service worker scopes.
Finally, we'll work on reducing our initial page weight, by applying code splitting, and reduce the size of our bundles with Rollup and Prepack. In the end, our “classic" app will load quickly on the first visit, and nearly instantly for every visit thereafter!

"Superb presentation from a genuine domain expert. I learned a ton today."
"Keep up the good work. I've attended a lot of online workshops, and they are very shallow and unpractical. Most of the time, online people are treated as second class, but still paying citizens. Here we get all the content and get to participate as well (if only there was a way to get those cookies...)."
"The class was great. It was really cool to get a bunch of links to example code to look at during the presentation and after the class."
"Good location and facility. Great technology for capture, presentation layout and video streaming. Really excellent being able to view the videos afterwards. It takes away the sense of having to absorb everything immediately or else lose it into the ether. It was fun. What more can you ask for?"
"Really well run...loved the communication pre-event. Very impressed with everything...this was my first online conference purchase, but I would definitely consider doing it again."
"I really enjoyed the online workshop experience. It is much better than just watching videos. I was able to participate in the conversations and benefit from other folks' questions."
"You guys did a really great job! I cannot say enough good things about the experience."
"Everything was first class: excellent instructor, material, video, moderator, audio. Thank you!"
My name is Marc Grabanski I'm the founder of Frontend Masters. I guarantee this workshop will be awesome. Period.
If you don't think it's worth 10x the value, I'm happy to give you back every penny. That's my promise to you!
