Offline Web

Video description

Dropped Internet connections are common in the mobile web. In this video, Max Firtman covers advanced technologies that keep a web site running when the network disappears. You’ll learn a range of useful offline techniques, such as how to install a web site as an app into a device, how to store the data locally, how to sync the data at a later time, and how to push messages to a user when the browser is closed. Developers with an understanding of JavaScript, HTML, CSS, and server-side technologies will find this to be a useful addition to Firtman’s Mobile Web App Development Video Learning Path.
