Progressive Web Apps (PWA) - The Complete Guide

Build a Progressive Web App (PWA) that feels like an iOS & Android App, using Device Camera, Push Notifications and more

  Enroll in Course

Progressive Web Apps (PWAs) are the next big thing in web development as they bring mobile-app-like experiences to your users without requiring them to install an app from the app store/ play store.

You still create a web application (HTML, CSS, JavaScript) but this course will teach you how to add features such as camera access, service workers for offline support, push notifications and more. This combines the best of both worlds: You deliver fast, engaging and reliable experiences whilst still having the reach and accessibility of a web page.

"Progressive Web App" simply is a term summarizing all the features allowing you to deliver mobile-like experiences. The topic is highly trending and it also is a topic which is here to stay! Not only is it strongly promoted by Google (actually a lot of talks at Google I/O 2017, Google's developer conference, were devoted to PWAs), it's also quickly being adopted by big companies like Twitter or the Washington Post.

Having the skills to build and optimize these kind of web apps is already an important and highly demanded skill for modern web developers, a trend which is only going to accelerate! Therefore, learning how to build PWAs will give you a competitive edge!


In detail, this course will cover everything you need to build amazing PWAs - leading to a score of 100 (out of 100) in Google's PWA auditing tool "Lighthouse":

  • Detailed explanation about what a PWA exactly is
  • How to use an app manifest to make your web app installable on device homescreens
  • Using service workers to offer offline support by caching assets
  • Advanced service worker usage and caching strategies
  • A refresher on Promises and the Fetch API as both concepts are heavily used in PWAs
  • How to improve user engagement by adding push notifications
  • A way to synchronize data in the background, even if connection is lost
  • How to access native device features like the camera or geolocation
  • Using Workbox to make service worker management easier
  • Explanations on how to turn your next SPA project into a PWA
  • And more

All these things are of course put into practice by building a course project. To ensure that you can apply the knowledge to ANY of your projects, the course project doesn't assume any JavaScript framework but focuses on the core features mentioned above!

So this course has a lot to offer, how do you tell if it's for you though?

It definitely is the right choice if ...

  • ... you already are a web developer (no matter if experienced or still new to the business) and want to prepare for the future
  • ... you enjoy working with HTML, CSS and JavaScript and want to leverage the full power the web and browser technologies have to offer
  • ... you want to deliver the best possible experiences to your users, using technologies like web push notifications or offline support

What do you need to know to get the most out of the course?

  • You need to know at least the basics of HTML, CSS and JavaScript
  • No advanced knowledge of these technologies required though
  • You DON'T need to know any JavaScript framework like Angular or React - PWAs work with ANY JavaScript app, even if you don't use a framework at all (actually, that's what we'll build in the course!)

I'd be very happy to welcome you on board of this course and start this journey together with you!

Very well organised contents. All efforts are made to introduce to best practices and lot of motivation for learning. Keep it up.

Pankaj Sharma

Reminded me of old school days where you discuss every small aspect of a course. Maximilian explained everything especially why we are doing this not that, so that we can understand ever line of code we write. Highly recommended!!

As a self-taught professional I really know the hard parts and the difficult topics when learning new or improving on already-known languages. This background and experience enable me to focus on the most relevant key concepts and topics. My track record of many 5-star rated courses, more than 1,000,000 students worldwide as well as a successful YouTube channel is the best proof for that.

The most rewarding experience for me is to see how people find new, better jobs, build awesome web applications, work on amazing projects or simply enjoy their hobby with the help of my content.

That's why, together with Manuel Lorenz, I founded Academind to offer the best possible learning experience and to share the pleasure of learning with our students.
