Designing "Offline First" Applications

For full details, including the address, and to RSVP see:
UX East

Join us for a speaker night focused on what we too often consider a negligible edge case of internet-driven digital experiences!
We live in a disconnected & battery powered world, but our technology and best practices are a leftover from the always connected & steadily powered past.

Offline capability is a key characteristic of modern Progressive Web Applications. Offline first thinking must learn from and further what we’ve seen work with Responsive and Mobile First thinking.

Read the introduction and the follow up on A List Apart.

Designing for Offline Experiences
by Steven Trevathan | @strevat

Devices are orbiting internet connectivity at all times, like cars passing under the glow of street lamps, only without their own light to follow. Our practice in designing modern web applications is burdened by a past that assumed the browser was for reading one document at a time on a steadily connected device.

In this talk, Steve will introduce the audience to the challenges of creating offline experiences, share offline design patterns found in the wild, describe process we may use to discover the unique cases of our own offline experiences, and shed some light on the state of worldwide device connectivity.

Talk TBD

Call for Speaker: we're looking for someone interested in giving a talk related to offline experiences (design, dev, product points of view are all welcome). Contact the organizers if you'd like to speak.
