  • Well documented
  • Supports learning

WHY ARE YOU HERE?

  • Embrace change,
    keep up to date
  • Don't just work,
    play too sometimes!
  • Urge to experiment,
    explore, dig deeper!

the (nothing short of) incredible  service worker

AppCache's offline support:

  • Limited breadth (flexible,
    less complex API)
  • Adding offline support
  • Increase site loading
    performance
  • Offline-first API
  • Bedrock API

...but service workers are  not just for offline

A true "server-in-your-client":

  • High-performance caches &
    patch updates
  • On the fly request recoding,
    transcoding and manipulation
  • Client-side searches & database
    manipulation
  • Transparent file format polyfills
  • And who knows what else!

The (not at all entirely distant) Future of the Web

The Web isn't (and shouldn't be) a carefully architected ivory tower — but a chaotic system defined by its parts and their interactions. Participating in shaping the future of the web is our shared responsibility. HWSW Mobile Budapest, 2015
