Shooing away the offline dinosaur from your legacy site

Adding cutting-edge features to a bloated codebase is usually a beast developers aren't too happy to face. But sometimes you just gotta have that "Add to Homescreen" -button popping up on your 2011 WordPress-site, no questions asked.

Thanks everybody for listening! I've added the slides below.
