In this workshop we will transform a typical server-depending web app into a nice and fluffy app which can be run on disconnected devices. The project will be a simple shopping list app. Items can be added or removed.
The talk gives only a brief overview about PostCSS in general and the most interesting plugins. The cssnext plugin seems to be an interesting alternative for LESS or SASS. After the talk we considered to apply this tool in an internal project to check out the usability. We do not bring it into our main projects because we are not sure about the stability and the community support. Will the PostCSS project be still alive in some years?

The short lightning talk intruduces the fundamentals of so called Progressive Web Apps. These kind of web apps are simple web pages with special characteristics. A real Progressive Web App loads fast and is even accessible on lost connectivity. It feels like a native app.
