Google Progressive Web App Dev. Sub-Saharan Africa Summit 2016 (Lagos | Nairobi | Johnannesburg)

Application Deadline: August 5th 2016

Progressive Web Apps are experiences that combine the best of the web and the best of apps. They load quickly, even on flaky networks, can re-engage with users by sending web push notifications, have an icon on the home screen and load as top-level, full screen experiences.

To help developers better understand the experiences that combine the best of the web and the best of apps, Google will be hosting its first ever Progressive Web Apps event series in Sub-Saharan Africa. This will take place across 3 cities in Africa:


Nairobi: 15 Aug, 2016 8:30am –  5:00pm
Lagos:   18 Aug, 2016 8:30am – 5:00pm
Johannesburg: 22 Aug, 2016 8:30am – 5:00pm


Nairobi: Crowne Plaza, Upperhill
Lagos: VCP Hotel, Lagos
Johannesburg: The Capital

Come engage in talks and hands-on codelabs covering Progressive Web Apps (PWA) with a focus on Instant and Offline Mobile Apps with Service Workers, Deep Engagements on Installable Apps and Push Notifications and much more. The workshop will provide you with the skills and resources necessary to start building your own Progressive Web App.

This is a technical event, with multiple sessions on Progressive Web Apps, facilitated by Googlers and Web Technologies Experts from around the world. The target audience is top developers from agencies, publishers, startups and indie developers, focusing on web apps /web sites.
