Google Is Going On A Progressive Web Apps Roadshow To Kenya, Nigeria And SA This Month



Google is organising a series of events that’ll discuss Progressive Web Applications in three African countries this month . They’re calling it the “Progressive Web Apps Roadshow” and it’s happening in Kenya, Nigeria and South Africa.

Y’all remember PWAs from Devcenter’s chat last week, yeah? Wikipedia says they can be seen as an evolving hybrid of regular web pages (or websites) and a mobile application. They are experiences that integrate the best part of the web with the best parts of apps. Basically, they use modern web capabilities to deliver app-like user experiences to users.
