Diving deep, deep offline — the web can do it
There is no need to advocate for progressive web apps anymore.

In my session, based on the exploration of Service Worker API (Cache Storage, Background Fetch, Background Sync) we go through the history of the offline web, treating the network as an enhancement, current challenges, solutions, and proper tooling.
