Strategy for Testing Progressive Web Apps (PWAs)
While mobile native apps provide great user experience, and responsive web sites offer a similar experience across both mobile and web, there is a new and emerging method of developing digital apps, that is called PWA (progressive web app).
Since this app type is new and works on both mobile and web, but adds unique capabilities when consumed on a mobile device like push notifications, no or limited network connectivity, and more, the testing strategy needs to adjust.
In this session, Eran Kinsbruner will walk through the fundamentals of PWAs, and what are the main differences, pro’s and con’s between these apps, RWD, and Native apps. IN addition, Eran will provide a test methodology that can help teams who adopt this technology to get started and cover the unique capabilities of these apps, like Service Workers, Manifest file testing, and more.
Key Insights from the Session:
1. Introduction to PWAs and motivation behind the adoption of such
2. Differences between PWA, RWD, and Native apps
3. Complexities in testing such apps across mobile and web
4. Testing 101 and tool stack to test such apps
