When building mobile systems there are several challenges to
consider.One of the most complicated challenges is allowing users to
use applications without 3G and Wifi. In this talk, Barbara will
introduce the concept of occasionally connected applications, how they
differ from offline and online ones, the challenges involved when
building them and why would you need them in a first place.
Offline usage brings up a number of complicated issues to resolve, the
actual work complexities start when application is connected back to
the Internet. This is when patterns for data caching and
synchronization become extremely important to ensure eventual
consistency between mobile clients and the server.Data synchronization
is not only mobile related with browsers and web applications also
encountering the same issues.
This talk will present ideas and approaches for maintaining and
developing your system as a whole, including planning new
functionalities while watching out for application growth.At the end,
attendees will understand the latest patterns, practices and
architectures used in modern day mobile and web applications to
support users who become offline in a connected world.
