Discussion on: I'm the community engineer on the Glitch team at Fog Creek, ask me anything!

I'm currently building a react/redux/firebase app as an MVP. I'm essentially going the opposite route to this and going serverless, using Firebase Cloud Functions for server processes, Firebase Auth for authentication and Firebase hosting for CDN hosting of static files. I'm still a few months off starting on the ServiceWorker and PWA enhancements like code splitting etc. Do you think the CDN/serverless approach has potential limitations with PWA's? I've never done code splitting so not sure I can properly pre-fetch without a server. To counteract the server rendered app shell, I'm simply hardcoding HTML with inline CSS to act as an app shell until react mounts to #app.
