A Progressive Web App can be as simple as adding a service worker and a manifest file to an existing website or as complex as spotify.com. How do you decide which features of a PWA make sense for your users and your business? What does it mean to be an “app” and how much does your PWA have to feel like one? This session will provide a framework for thinking about Progressive Web App features and how to put together a roadmap that delivers incremental improvements that benefit users.
