#W16: Service Worker At Your Service
Date & Time
1st November from 13:30 to 16:30
Workshop 16 | Building B
Do you want to speed up your web application or make it work offline? We will show you how to take the first steps toward PWA using the Service Worker.
Service Worker is on the rise but a lot of developers are still hesitating to use it. Last year Safari joined other major browsers with at least basic support and this year with some fixes, so you can start using Service Worker across the web. It is a simple layer between your web app and backend.
You will get a simple web application that is “online first” and during the workshop, you will make it “offline first” by only adding a Service Worker implementation. We will also briefly look at some new possibilities in PWA as well as some drafts for the future.
