If you recently started your journey learning web development and if you are interested in building apps without having to also learn about iOS, Android, or desktop app development, then you’re about to fall in love with Progressive Web Apps.
Starting on February 14th 2022, we ran a series of blog posts which lasted for 30 days, and covered all aspects of Progressive Web Apps development: what they are, how they’re built, what special powers they have, how to create, debug, test and optimize them, and how to publish them to app stores!
Whether you just started with web development or have experience already, there should be a little bit for everyone in this blog series.
