In today's always-connected world, users expect to have a mobile experience that is immediate, pervasive, and aware. In this way, it is crucial to build apps that meet these expectations. Specifically, your business needs to build mobile apps that are always available, regardless of network connectivity and speed.

Users expect a great experience when using their mobile apps. If an app doesn't provide this, then users won't use it — it's that simple. In the past, this has mostly meant a beautiful and intuitive interface, which is important but not the whole story.

In this webcast, you'll learn how to build a mobile app that has a consistent user experience, both online and offline. This includes:

  • Syncing the data
  • Storing the data
  • Securing the data
  • Cross platform data modeling

You'll walk away with an understanding of the design patterns required to build an app that works online and offline — all this, using open source technologies.
