Measuring the Real-world Performance Impact of Service Workers
Building the Google I/O 2016 Progressive Web App
Learn how we built a the Google I/O 2016 Progressive Web App (IOWA) using web components, Polymer, and material design and launched it into production on Google.com.
IOWA is a single page application (SPA) that's built using web components, Polymer, Firebase, and has an extensive backend written in App Engine (Go). It pre-caches content for offline users using a service worker, dynamically loads new pages, gracefully transitions between views, and reuses content after first load.
