As a tool its a good thing.
As a general website a PWA such a blog is a no but as a tool such as the ability to complete a form/document offline, add photos etc is very useful so for say medical or insurance purposes a like (i make PWA's and Hybid Apps for the App stores) these can be essential, but for getting the latest news basically its just a fancy bookmarker.
The main reason PWA are being pushed Google (and Apple in some respect) are pushing these is that they don't have to go through an App store for the user to install them so there is less work for Google Play to interns of management and platform support, essentially they can spend less.
Experience ruining a small group of VPS server for eCommerce website as a web developer, I can tell you that they always go down when its the weekend and you have to restart them on your own time.
Seriously just let some one else who is actually a full time server engineer worry about upgrades and keeping lights on.
Microsoft's elderly .NET Framework shakes stick at whippersnapper Core while Visual Studio drops another preview
Perhaps its just random luck, but I do websites and mobile apps, I see jobs advertised for these skills that want .net etc but Iv never see a products or met anyone that actually uses these MS skills. I make a nice profit with node/js/angular and classic HTML/CSS, perhaps its because I don't have to pay for licences and certified retraining or when I make a website in HTML, I can leave it there for 10 year and it will still work perfectly regardless of changes to the server software and not get hacked. We also never hear what MS feels about Googles Firebase platform that includes a JSON/NoSQL database, functions and hosting.
As a local I welcome this, Shrewsburys centre has a slight London look and has a excellent road transport system for anyone wanting to visit, the whole area including (Telford kind of startup city like Milton Keens with less concrete) is a great place to run a business as wages are 30%-40% lower than London, low crime rate, lower cost of living and Englands second least populated county, plenty of business parks right next to Shropshire's own AONB.
If you want to do quick Google of places, Ironbridge, Muchwenlock, Coalport, Bishpos Casle, Stokesay Castle, Ludlow, Stipple Stones, Attingham park, Clee Hill, Lyth Hill Country Park
US JEDI military cloud network is so high-tech, bidders will have to submit their proposals by hand, on DVD
Oi, you. Equifax. Cough up half a million quid for fumbling 15 million Brits' personal info to hackers
Let me be very clear, if anyone says there is no budget some one in the chain of command usually more than one is trying to give there boss a blow job (the only exception is when you see bailiffs at the front door). Spend what you need to get the job done and meet compliance, otherwise your not doing a professional job. The trouble is that most IT professional lack training in other areas such as negotiation.
Well there are a lot of things I don't like about face book but one of the good things I can say about them as a marketer that has done a lot of online advertising is that the click trough on a advert does seem to be more human, rather than "fake bot clicks" that plague the industry and cost business a lot of money that you might get on "market leading search engines", how do I know well I we use software that track real time mouse movements across a website, and well its quite obvious when its a human.
I wonder why there has never been an investigation into that.
