Today i had the chance to be the speaker of a live stream  Masterclass on the Microsoft Journey to WebSummit initiative.

The topic of my Masterclass was Progressive Web Application introductions and the long path we had walk until this moment. In my opinion Progressive Web Apps may really be the best big thing on Mobile development.

The thing that i had learned while i had been experiencing and digging the PWA concepts is that to be succeeded we most have control of the Mobile Web technical bases and also the PWA Concepts.

In this session the main focus was the angular stones of PWA, and how to build your first PWA, i had spend also sometime around Service Workers that more then a buzz word is the hotwst thing in Web development.

The session was deliver in English and since i hadn’t have any opportunity to interact with the audiance, i was litle seek and a development tool error didn’t allow me to build a full demo from scratch.

You can download the slides of my session and reuse it if you need from http://www.slideshare.net/amarreiros/jws-masterclass-progressive-web-apps.

I would share in the next posts some basic concepts and development pratices to:

  • Windows Hosted Web APPS
  • Progressive Web APPS
  • Service Workers

Is one off the best times to start with the Cross Platform APP if you are a .Net core developer or if you need to build LOB or cross platform apps.

Not only the Mono touch had become a Framework with full support to all the Mobile challenges today, but also is one-off the few platform that allow us to have full integrated a continuous development test and deliver system

One of the problems related with Mobile development is the need of devices for testing, is impossible to have all the devices needed to make our test’s.

At some time i had look for a solution that can help the mobile solutions test. Last 2 weeks i had try a interesting platform, his name is Perfecto Mobile and is a sas service that can really help to automate our app testing and also to have remote access to a great number of devices.

 

This platform was a really nice suprise, not just for the base features i was looking for but also because this sas system has some integration with code repositories like TFS. A nice way to go if testing and give support to a great variety of devices is one off your drives.
