A Modern Mobile Web Journey: From AMP to PWA

Submitted Aug 25, 2016

Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) delivers outstanding page-load performance for users browsing content on the mobile web, which is hugely important on limited or flaky networks. Progressive Web Apps (PWA) deliver reliable performance for re-visits to sites thanks to Service Workers and allows unprecedented engagement via push notifications and the App Shell architecture.

AMP gets content in front of users fast - PWAs enable rich experiences and engagement. What if I told you there’s a way to utilize the unique power of both? To build a web experience that loads in an instant and upgrades you to maximum interactivity and engagement? We’re making it happen. Come to learn how.


This talk will cover how you can build great mobile web experience, starting from AMP to PWA.
