Web Performance for Progressive Web Apps

by Yaser Mehraban

This course will teach you how to find and fix performance issues in web applications, and accurately measure improvements.

What you'll learn

Developing web applications is complex, but regardless of the choices you make, one thing that’s important (and particularly for PWAs) is performance. In this course, Web Performance for Progressive Web Apps, you'll learn how to measure, spot, and fix performance issues in PWAs. First, you’ll explore how to measure the performance of a web application using different tools.

Next you'll discover some techniques to use on the server side code which will result in a better speed and performance. Then, you’ll discover how to be reactive about web performance instead of waiting for someone to complain.

When you’re comfortable with those techniques, you'll go one step further and will become familiar with why performance is so important for PWAs. Finally, you’ll learn how to plan for improvements and apply changes step by step and measure the performance after each step to make sure you’re on the right path.

When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge needed to create well performing progressive web applications.
