Q. You’re speaking at Voxxed Days Bucharest in March. Tell us a bit about your session.
Offline-first design guarantees a 100% always-on user experience. Low signal or no internet connectivity should not be a blocker anymore, and we get rid of latency as a bonus. In this session, I will dig into the topic of implementing offline-first apps, best practices, and coding examples. And to place a cherry on top of it, I will be using WebComponents in my demos, to make sure that they are aligned with the modern web.
Q. Why is the subject matter important?
Making your apps available offline, and without interruption whenever the internet signals are lost, is one key feature to increase user engagement and maintain a good turnover to your apps. We are living in the progressive web apps era, and offline-first is one of the key concepts that makes reaching for billions easier.
Q. Who should attend your session?
Web developers, software architects, and cross-platform developers. Level of experience is not important.
Q. What are the key things attendees will take away from your session?
– Design offline-first apps.
– Definition of WebComponents and why use them
– Progressive Web apps
Q. Aside from speaking at Voxxed Days Bucharest, what else are you excited about for 2017?
I’m preparing more interesting content for progressive web apps and offline first design, some final touches and I can’t wait to make them all available (or upgrade existing ones) so stay tuned and follow my github: https://github.com/amahdy
