Offline Web Applications

Google via Udacity


This course is focused squarely on user experience, and seeks to show developers how thinking offline-first is the best way to ensure that applications perform their best in all scenarios, not just ideal ones. You'll learn to recognize the differences between good, poor, intermittent, and missing connectivity for your users , and master how to make applications that navigate these conditions with ease.

Using the skills you master in this course, you'll conclude by building an app that that works both online and offline, and loads in new data when it can. You'll be a master of the cache! Your web apps will interact with the network just like native apps do. This will lead to better user experiences even in traditionally challenging connection scenarios like being stuck in a train tunnel, having to rely on over-crowded conference Wi-Fi, or traveling through a cellular "dead zone!"
