Progressive web applications are all the rage. React, Vue, and Angular dominate the developer field. Recently, Safari announced support for web manifests in their browser, Chrome support pre-existing the announcement. Job postings require developers to know some level of a web application framework. With all of the mentioned buzz around PWAs, developers strive to include these technologies. Problems lie when communicating this excitement and necessity to designers. This panel shares knowledge about what a PWA is, why they matter, and further why they matter to designers.
