Google’s Polymer Project with Rob Dodson

JavaScript – Software Engineering Daily

Smart phone apps have better performance than web apps. When we have an application that we use on a regular basis, we download that application to a smart phone rather than using the browser based version on our mobile browser. Google’s Polymer Project wants to improve the gap between native app performance and mobile web app performance. The key problem with mobile web is that we are sending huge JavaScript bundles to mobile devices, which inhibits performance. The Polymer Project is working to build more functionality into our mobile browsers so that it is easier to load these heavy web applications. Rob Dodson is a developer advocate with Google. Today’s episode explores the past, present, and future of web application development, from jQuery to React to progressive web apps. The Polymer project also represents a push towards better support for people in developing countries, where internet connections are less reliable. Sponsors Linode has fast, simple cloud servers. Go to linode.com/sedaily for a free $20 in credit–server pricing starts at $10 a month. The post Google’s Polymer Project with Rob Dodson appeared first on Software Engineering Daily.
