Offline-First Apps with PouchDB at That Conference

Offline-First Apps with PouchDB at That Conference

Mobile web apps shouldn't stop working when there's no network connection. Based on Apache CouchDB, PouchDB is an open source syncing JavaScript database that runs within a web browser. Offline-first apps built using PouchDB can provide a better, faster user experience—both offline and online.

Learn how to use the HTML5 Offline Application Cache, PouchDB and Cloudant/CouchDB to build offline-enabled responsive mobile web apps. We’ll also discuss how to use PouchDB with Cordova/PhoneGap, Ionic, and Cloudant/CouchDB to build fully-featured, cross-platform native/hybrid apps or high-fidelity prototypes.

PouchDB runs in all modern mobile browser, in desktop browsers, within Cordova/PhoneGap and on the server side with Node.js. This talk will demonstrate creating a PouchDB database, creating a new document, updating a document, deleting a document, querying a database, synchronization PouchDB with a remote database, and live updates to a user interface based on database changes.
