Planning Your Progressive Web App

Jason Grigsby Co-founder Cloud Four

If you have a website—particularly one that generates revenue for your organization—you need a Progressive Web App. So where do you begin? How do you decide which features of a Progressive Web App make sense for your users? What tools can make the process easier (or harder)? In this practical session, Jason will guide you through the key design decisions you’ll need to make about your Progressive Web App and how those decisions impact the scope of your project. He'll also teach you how to avoid common pitfalls and help you take full advantage of Progressive Web App technology.

Jason Grigsby

In 2000, Jason Grigsby got his first mobile phone. He became obsessed with how the world could be a better place if everyone had access to the world's information in their pockets. When his soon-to-be-wife, Dana, met him, he had covered the walls of his apartment with crazy mobile dreams. To this day, he remains baffled that she married him.

Those mobile dreams hit the hard wall of reality: WAP was crap. So Jason went to work on the web until 2007, when the iPhone made it clear the time was right. He joined forces with the three smartest people he knew and started Cloud Four.

Since co-founding Cloud Four, he has had the good fortune to work on many fantastic projects, including the Obama iPhone App. He is founder and president of Mobile Portland, a local nonprofit dedicated to promoting the mobile community in Portland, Oregon. Jason is a sought‐after speaker and consultant on mobile. You can find him blogging at cloudfour.com; on his personal site, userfirstweb.com; and on Twitter as @grigs.

Don't miss your chance to see Jason Grigsby and many other inspiring speakers at Code 19.

Tickets start at $1195, for two in-depth days with the world's leading design experts.
