Progressive Web Apps Webinar Hosted by Magento Commerce, Gorilla Group & Mobify to Show Retailers How to Go Beyond Responsive and Win with Mobile

CHICAGO/NEW YORK/VANCOUVER, BC, April 11, 2017 — Ecommerce leaders Magento Commerce, Gorilla Group and Mobify have teamed up to produce a webinar on Progressive Web Apps, (PWAs) the evolution of web technologies that is enabling merchants to deliver app-like, contextual experiences on the mobile web. Retailers and brand managers will learn best practices to grow conversions and revenues, as well as challenges and mistakes to avoid with PWAs.

Attendees can register for “Beyond Responsive: Adapting to the New Realities of Progressive Web Apps,” to be held Wed.,  April 12, 2017,  at 8 a.m. PT.  An on-demand recording will be sent to those who register but can’t attend the live event.

While the previous standard of responsive web design delivered device-specific experiences without the cost and headache of developing native mobile apps,  today’s consumers expect more from the mobile web. PWAs can deliver app-like benefits such as speed, innovation and unprecedented interactions through mobile browsers, without requiring shoppers to download an app.

Presenters James Zetlen, frontend architect at Magento Commerce; Adam Brown, executive creative director at Gorilla Group; and Peter McLachlan, chief product officer at Mobify will cover:

  • The limitations of responsive design and how mobile is progressing to support the new, modern web experience purpose-built to support mobile moments
  • The anatomy of a PWA and how to leverage speed, context, and innovations for increased conversions and engagement
  • The challenges of producing  PWAs, including skills required and tools for accelerating success
