Getting started with progressive web applications through Workbox and service workers

In this tutorial, we're going to explore how to make web applications work offline through the use of service workers from Workbox.

There are many things that make up a progressive web application, whether that be with a mobile-friendly user experience (UX), having a native desktop and mobile API integration, or just being able to use the application without an internet connection.

Service workers are the first step towards developing a fully compliant progressive web application (PWA) and frameworks like Workbox make it very easy.

I had no experience with Workbox before watching this tutorial and I found it really useful just to get that all important first, working example up and running. Sounds trivial but I also liked the way it showed that you can just fully qualify the Workbox packages rather than, as in the official documentation examples, assigning the namespaces to constants first - getting different views from different people on the basics really helps with my learning. Thanks for a good video.
