Project Fugu: Progressive Web Apps, Taken to The Next Level

Materials and Downloads

Session Abstract

Progressive Web Apps are a great cross-platform application model, even if somewhat restricted in use—until now, that is. Project Fugu is an initiative led by Google, Microsoft, and Intel. Their goal: a more capable web. Home screen icon badges and shortcuts, clipboard access, accelerated shape detection in images and native file system access are only a few examples of Fugu’s powerful APIs. In this session, Christian Liebel, PWA specialist at Thinktecture, shows you the objective of Project Fugu and demonstrates some of its APIs. Are you ready to take your Progressive Web App to the next level?
