Offline First: smarter, faster, better web sites and apps


Full-day workshop • Dec. 9th
HTML5 and related W3C developments over the last few years have introduced numerous valuable features for more application like development. One area where the Web has made significant improvements in recent years is in the ability to work offline, and rely less and less on being always connected to a server side.

In this all day, hands-on workshop, John Allsopp will cover the technologies now available to help your sites and applications work while a user isn't connected to the Web, and better even when they are.

What you'll learn:

  • HTML5 Application Cache for sites that work offline (and faster sites too)
  • Webstorage (a simple, in-browser database)
  • The File API (providing better access to local files, such as images)
  • Offline Events

Who is it for?

Front End developers, with at least some exposure to JavaScript (but there's no need to be an expert to take advantage of almost all these features). You'll need to bring a laptop.
