PWAs & Polymer: Let's Prototype a Modern Web App
Presented by Google Developer Group's Nitya Narasimhan at MongoDB World 2018. Mobile web apps are gaining ground on native apps in terms of features, performance and flexibility. In this talk, I'll cover progressive web apps & web components - two key technologies that can speed up development, simplify maintenance, enhance usability & boost performance of modern web apps. The ubiquity of mobile devices continues to fuel demand and innovation in the mobile apps market. And while native (Android & iOS) development continues to flourish, it is increasingly finding competition from both mobile web apps (browser-based) and hybrid apps (web apps adapted & packaged for deployment to native app markets). As web developers, we now have two new technologies to add to our tool-belt that can make web apps competitive in experience and performance, with native counterparts.
