PWAs (Progressive Web Apps) is the next big thing in web development because they provide mobile-app-like experiences to your users without requiring them to download an app from the app store/play store.
The “Progressive Web App” is simply a term describing all the features that enable mobile-like experiences. It is a topic that is highly trending and will likely stay relevant for quite some time! As well as being heavily promoted by Google (at Google I/O 2017, the company's developer conference, several talks were devoted to PWAs), major companies like Twitter and the Washington Post have quickly adopted it.
Building and optimizing these types of web applications is already an increasingly important, highly sought-after skill for modern web developers, and this trend is only going to accelerate! Learn how to develop PWAs to give yourself an advantage over your competitors.
