Satisfying the Need for Mobile Speed
Building the ultimate PWA experience

The speed and performance of a webshop have an extreme influence on the behaviour of the visitors and potential customers. Growth in conversion rate, lowering the bounce rate and extending session length: it can all be done by optimising the performance.
Most website are slow – and PWA are finally here to make it fast. During this talk Michal and Jamie Maria from DEITY will show you their journey to satisfy their need for speed; building the ultimate mobile experience by building a PWA with just milliseconds page transitions.

Localised websites offer visitors the latest fashion news, the FashionUnited career center, trade statistics, employer branding pages and the event calendar.

FashionUnited’s innovative platform is built using modern technologies, JavaScript being the dominant language. React and Meteor are in use, but not shy of more exotic languages Elixir is used for the GraphQL API’s. The serverless movement is another one that got our attention, though most of the platform runs in Kubernetes.
