Getting Off(line): Appcache, LocalStorage for HTML5 Apps that Work Offline

One of the per­ceived bene­fits of “nat­ive” apps is that they can be installed on a device, then run when the user isn’t con­nec­ted. But web apps can do this too.

In this ses­sion, John All­sopp will show you how to use HTML5 fea­tures such as app cache and web­Stor­age to cre­ate apps that the user can install, and which will work even when the user is cruis­ing at 30,000 feet with no web connection.

These fea­tures also have the added bonus of help­ing to improve the per­form­ance of web sites and apps as well, and even work in all mod­ern browsers and devices, includ­ing IE8 up!
