Service Workers are the most significant addition to the web platform since the introduction of AJAX. This course will show you why, and help you leverage the power of Service Workers to make your web apps work without an internet connection.
Hi everyone, my name is Nik Molnar and welcome to my course Building Offline Web Apps with Service Worker.
I am a Program Manager at Microsoft, and long-time web developer and web enthusiast.
Service Workers are the most important technological advancement to the web since the invention of AJAX over 15 years ago. They are a cornerstone for creating web experiences that rival native applications in performance and capability.
Some of the major topics that we will cover include:
Making network requests with the new Fetch API
How to register, install and activate a Service Worker
How to leverage the new Cache API defined in the Service Worker specification
And some common caching patterns and strategies along with when it’s best to apply each of them
By the end of this course you’ll be able to enhance any existing web application with Service Workers so that the sitecam can still be used, even when your user is offline.
I hope you’ll join me on this journey to learn Service Workers with the Building Offline Web Apps with Service Worker course, at Pluralsight.
