Taking the Web Offline @ WordCamp Ann Arbor

This year, I’ll be speaking for the first time at WordCamp Ann Arbor, presenting my case study Taking the Web Offline!

The internet is an amazing tool for sharing information with users all over the world, but what happens when “online” isn’t a guarantee? This was the question posed after 10up built an web-based product catalog for one of the world’s leading water technology providers. With a sales team of hundreds, how could we be sure that the sales materials were always available to the sales team, regardless of internet connectivity?

This session is a case-study on taking a web application offline, synchronizing JSON data and assets while maintaining a consistent user experience. Attendees will gain insight on the unique challenges of taking an app offline, as well as the technologies available and strategies for keeping data intact and the user experience seamless.

As a side-note, this weekend will also be my five-year wedding anniversary, so I’m wide-open to suggestions for great restaurants in the greater Ann Arbor, MI area!
