The Web's future is offline

A session at beyond tellerrand // BERLIN 2014

Wednesday 5th November, 2014

4:15pm to 5:00pm (CET)

The Web is in most people's mind synonymous with the internet. And that of course means no internet connection, no Web. However this association is holding back how, and what, we build for the Web.

Just as native apps can, once installed, run on a device even with poor or now connectivity, it's a little known fact that so too can Web sites and apps. In this session, John will look at the technologies that enable the offline Web, including AppCache, Web Storage, and Service Workers, and more importantly the philosophy behind, and opportunity presented by the 'offline first' Web.

Whether you're a developer who build for the Web, or someone who designs Web experiences, you'll come away with a whole new understanding of what we can build using Web technologies.
