No Internet? No Problem!

Forum One 9:00am

At Off Grid Electric our mission is to power homes across rural Africa with affordable, solar energy. In order to do that we need to provide our employees with tools that work both on and offline. So how did we do it? In this talk, learn about the techniques we employed to provide a unique online-offline experience in our Android applications. We’ll discuss the overall architecture, third party libraries used, and some of the challenges that we faced. As more and more users come online in various parts of the world it makes sense for companies to begin exploring how they can modify their applications to be more network-friendly. This talk will get you headed in the right direction!
