Open source of the Google I/O 2015 web app
This year, our team of developers from the Google Developers team set a goal to build the Google I/O web site (https://goo.gl/1B7fw0
) as an example of modern web development. It's offline-enabled
, mobile first
, and uses the latest platform features like Polymer, material design, web components, service worker, push notifications, google sign-in 2.0, add to homescreen, and web animations APIs. It also works with the companion I/O Android app, allowing users to save events and see their synced Schedule across the two apps. Every detail, including UX, was new and untackled territory from a Dev perspective, leading us to create a first-of-it’s-kind mobile web app - and we couldn’t be prouder of the final result.
To showcase and inspire on how to build mobile web apps using Google’s APIs, tools and services, we’re open sourcing the I/O web app for the first time. Check out the code, file bugs, or contribute here: github.com/GoogleChrome/ioweb2015
