HTML5 offline for fun and performance

A session at Web Directions @media 2011

Friday 27th May, 2011

10:45am to 11:40am (GMT)

With HTML5, we can now cache our applications and the data that goes with them. This means our favourite programming platform can now be used to build apps that work offline, survive intermittent downtimes, and gain in performance from cached content. In this session we’ll get hands-​​on with the application cache to make the app run when it’s not online. We’ll check out the techniques for client-​​side persistence: web storage and indexed database. Finally, we’ll look at the latest techniques for file access — reading and writing files on the user’s hard drive from a web app is being defined by web standards and implemented in today’s modern browsers.
