These days, all our data moves away from us. We comment in someone else's site. We store our photos behind lengthy terms of service. We scatter our digital selves across the cloudy online landscape.
We can also change things for the better.
In this talk, we'll explore the self-centered world of offline-first applications. Apache CouchDB's replication protocol has provided simple data movement for over a half decade. Adding PouchDB to the mix (with it's CouchDB compatible replication), means our data can start close to us and move to the Cloud when we choose--or when the Cloud happens to be available.
