The first of two scheduled Keynote addresses kicks off Build 2015, Microsoft’s annual developer conference at the venerable Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco.Last year, Microsoft generated a lot of buzz with Windows Phone 8.1, a big, and somewhat controversial update for a mobile platform that would experience a significant amount of growth.

If you use Android, you might have come across a Progressive Web App or two in your Chrome journeys. Progressive Web Apps (not to be confused with Android’s native “Instant Apps”) use relatively fresh new web technologies to make websites work better offline or with intermittent connections, and often mimic native features like push notifications.

Well, Microsoft wants to get into the action. It’s bringing Progressive Web Apps (not to be confused with Universal Windows Platform apps, many of which are glorified websites) to Windows 10 with a new version of Edge that supports the necessary web technologies. Microsoft will also start adding high quality PWAs to the Microsoft Store, and developers can also submit their PWA for consideration. Unlike Electron apps, such as Microsoft’s own Visual … [Read more...] about Microsoft is turning Progressive Web Apps into Windows apps
