Offline for web applications

A session at Frontend Dev Conf'14

Wednesday 19th February, 2014

1:15pm to 2:00pm (MMT)

For web developers ‘offline’ is still an abstract term, but in the past years we have seen a transition from traditional computers that are always connected, to smartphones and tablets that have spotty connections and where data is expensive. It’s time to rethink the way we develop. It’s time to go «offline first». Using an intelligent combination of appcache, indexedDB, local storage and some other HTML5 magic makes your application a gazillion times faster on subsequent reloads, allow for preloading navigation paths and offline availability as a bonus. This is a talk about current available technology that web developers can use to make their applications available for offline use; how you can leverage these techniques to improve the responsiveness of your web app; and we take a peek into the future.
