The web is progressing! Progressive webapps point the way towards a future where the lines between native apps and webapps become increasingly blurred. Service Workers and use of a webapp manifest, along with responsive web design and such emerging APIs as push notifications, web audio and access to hardware capabilities are bringing power to the web platform across devices. Watch the videos from this free event to learn about these technologies.

Who is the team behind it?
This event is a community project and is not being organized by any one company, organization or conference organizer. The people on the a organizing committee are Daniel Appelquist, Bruce Lawson and Natasha Rooney. In addition, Jonathan Fielding has kindly donated his web development skills.
What are progressive webapps?
Progressive webapps is a term that people are starting to use to talk about web applications built around responsive design / progressive enhancement design patterns that take advantage of emerging web platform technologies, primarily the Service Workers specification and use of the Manifest file to enable save-to-homescreen functionality. Alex Russell’s blog post is a good primer. The upshot is that progressive webapps are web applications that take on a lot of the characteristics people like about native apps but retain their essential webbiness. Progressive webapps are part of the web, so they are inherently cross-browser and built on web standards.
Why are you doing this?
We all work on web technologies and we’re all excited about the potential of the progressive webapps toolkit. This event is about getting the word out to more developers and technologists about progressive webapps.
Who should attend?
This is a technology-focused developer event. Our presenters will be presenting code on stage, talking you through APIs, developer tools and issues around developer lifecycle. We are expecting web developers and technologists to attend. You will leave with more knowledge than you arrived with about how to build progressive webapps and what you can do with some emerging APIs on the web platform.
Is there a code of conduct?
Yes, we are using the crowd-sourced code of conduct at http://confcodeofconduct.com. If at any time during the event you feel you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact one of the conference organizers (Bruce, Dan or Natasha) immediately.
