Have you heard about progressive Web apps? Of course you have. The whole Internet seems to be discussing them right now. And the subject got even hotter after Google I/O 18’ and a long-awaited confirmation that PWAs are coming to desktop for Chrome OS 67 in early June. Work is already under way for Windows and Mac.
You probably heard about this new EU-wide piece of legislation called General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Although much has been said on the subject, still many business owners struggle to wrap their heads around it. To make matters somewhat worse, the GDPR neither suggests a single, clear approach to data processing nor does it comprehensively explain how its ordinations will affect businesses of different shapes and sizes.
And so it happened. Progressive Web Apps are no longer limited to Android users, but can be now accessed by iPhone and iPad owners with the 11.3 iOS update. On March 30, Apple has quietly added support for technologies that make PWAs work (although you will not find any mention of this in their official press release), thus allowing you to install apps without any approval from the App Store. The PWAs on iOS are still far from being as smooth as they is on Chrome, Opera, or Firefox, but still it’s a big step for Apple.
From developers to designers, from CEOs to investors, today’s tech landscape is full of people redefining our perception and use of technology. Among them—many women spearheading this change. True, there are still too few of them in this world, but them women from listed below are doing their utmost to change that state of affairs.
A smooth, cross-platform experience is the dream of every developer and business owner since the release of modern smartphones. In the history of mobile we’ve had iPhones and Blackberries, Android, Windows Phones, and a handful of smaller players. Building a native app for each one of these platforms sounds like an expensive venture and a long and arduous process.
You probably already know this: the first step to learning something in any subject is acknowledging that you don’t necessarily know it all inside out.
This is really exciting: our team has just wrapped up the work on State of Vue.js—a comprehensive report crafted for developers and technology businesses interested in making educated decisions about their stack.
It was hard to go back to our day-to-day reality after those incredible couple of days at VueConf. The whole thing felt curiously like closing a chapter, and a very long one at that. Putting everything in place took us nearly seven months and now was over, just like that. Leaving us just a little bit nostalgic.
