Get Off my Internets - building offline web applications

A session at Dutch Mobile Conference 2013

Friday 7th June, 2013

10:45am to 11:30am (AMT)

The use of mobile devices to access web applications is greatly increasing and web developers are spending more time ensuring that their application looks better on this additional form factor. However, it is not sufficient to make the websites look good, when their functionality is compromised due to flaky internet connectivity. Offline support for applications enhances the experience significantly but developers are confused by the multiple options (IndexedDB, WebSql, localStorage etc.) and browser support matrix.

This talk discusses the various options, and tries to help developers with libraries and code to make their webapp get off the internet. It covers libraries like Jquery IndexedDB, PouchDB, db.js and the IndexedDB shim as ways to use offline support for almost all browsers. To the folks who are still not convinced, this talk will be based on star wars, so come in to hear the great saga from a world far far away .... :)
