Offline rules: Bleeding edge web standards at the Financial Times

A session at FINHTML5

In the last couple of years a deluge of new web technologies have appeared, allowing for the creation of ever richer and more immersive web applications. The FT is one of the pioneers in the use of newly minted HTML5 technologies to build web apps that are virtually indistinguishable from native apps. But using these technologies is far from easy. I'll cover some of the compelling reasons for choosing HTML5 and investing in the web platform.

In the second part of the talk, I'll focus on one of the most complex and difficult aspects of modern web development, and walk through the techniques to consider when building a web application that can load and function with no network connectivity. The examples will feature real-life code from our FT and the Economist applications, so you know that the techniques here are applicable to large, complex problems.
