Progressive Web Apps (PWA) – The Complete Guide

Make a Progressive Web App (PWA) that feels like an iOS or Android app, using Push Notifications, Device Camera, etc. by taking the Progressive Web Apps (PWA) – The Complete Guide course.

What you’ll learn

  • Design web apps that appear and behave like native mobile apps on iOS and Android
  • Use service workers to build web apps that work without internet connection (offline-first)
  • Make use of device capabilities, such as the camera and geolocation, to enhance user engagement with your web apps
  • Use web push notifications to increase user engagement with your web apps



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.

In this Progressive Web Apps (PWA) – The Complete Guide course, you’ll still have to create a web application (HTML, CSS, JavaScript), but you’ll learn more about camera access, utilizing service workers offline, and setting up push notifications. This gives you the best of both worlds: you can provide fast, engaging, and reliable experiences, while still allowing your website to be viewed and accessed by the general public.
