September’s meetup welcome’s back local node.js hacker, Bradley Meck but this time Bradley is bringing his partner in crime, Kassandra Perch, to talk about not only a buzzword-worthy topic, but also one a topic that is incredibly useful – offline web apps.
Offline features are more than just for when you application is offline or for viewing content offline! Bradley and Kassandra will be discussing how to use ApplicationCache to speed up page loads and Lawnchair.js for storing offline data. They will have an example using Backbone.js’ ORM to have an offline application send requests with updated data to a server after it has been offline w/o user interaction.
- When: Tuesday, September 20th, 2011 from 7:30-9:00 PM.
- Where: frog – 101 West 6th Street – 2nd Floor
- How: Parking is on the street, or you can take any number of buses to get downtown.
- Afterwards, the discussion carries on a few blocks away at The Gingerman, where they have over 70 beers on tap.
