Can we expect to see a full course on Progressive Web Apps in 2019?

I just completed "Front-End Optimization Workflow" w/ Dale Sande and really liked it, however, there is so much more to learn about PWAs, in general.

One of the biggest questions I have is, what if my website used a MySQL database (or any database, for that matter), and needed to interact with that database through a progressive web app. How is that handled and what would I do so the user understands that information needs to be passed to the database, but may also be temporarily stored on their device, for whatever reasons they may be offline, until they have a connection again.

Also - as a side note - if I had a choice, a teacher that I feel could balance everything needed for a course like this, from aesthetics to functionality would be Guil Hernandez - by far, my favorite teacher on Treehouse.

This would be great, Steven I would like to see this implemented as web apps are becoming ever more common.

Me too, I'd like to see a full implementation of a non-PGWA to a full PGWA case study.
