Web Directions Code ’21 session spotlight–PWAs & Project Fugu: Closing The Relevance Gap

PWAs & Project Fugu: Closing The Relevance Gap

Alex Russell, Partner Program Manager Microsoft Edge

Chromium’s Project Fugu is an open collaboration to push the capabilities of the web platform forward through standards. When combined with Progressive Web Apps, we’re approaching a point where whole classes of applications that were previously exclusive to native apps are coming to market on the web. This talk digs into the what, but also the why, of this huge expansion of power for web developers.
