Do you want to make your app experience more robust and delightful? Are you eager to write apps that cater to a wider audience, not just the Silicon Valley crowd? Do you need to persuade your peers that offline-first is a worthwhile development paradigm? If your answer to all or any one of these questions is yes, then this is the book is for you. Some previous coding and command-line experience would be useful, but is not required.
When building mobile apps, it’s easy to forget about the moments when your users lack a good Internet connection. Try this: put your phone in airplane mode and open a few popular apps to see how they handle being offline. From Twitter to Pinterest to Apple Maps, some apps handle being offline better than others, but very few do it well. A poor offline experience will result in frustrated users who may stop using your app, or worse, turn to your competitor’s apps.
Expert or novice, this book will teach you everything you need to know about designing and building a rigorous offline app experience. By putting the offline experience first, you’ll have a solid foundation to build upon, avoiding the unnecessary stress and frustration of trying to retrofit offline capabilities into your finished app. This basic principle, designing for the worst case scenario, could save you countless hours of wasted effort.
Daniel Sauble is part UX designer, part developer, and part researcher. He loves enterprise software start-ups and has worked at companies including Puppet Labs and Sonatype on problems encompassing configuration management, repository management, and patch management. Ironically, his first foray into book authorship has nothing to do with any of these.
In his leisure time, he runs, speaks, writes, and spends time with his family. He has learned that there is nothing more painful than the end of an ultramarathon, more nerve-racking than your first conference talk, or more satisfying than a long writing project. One day, he may be foolish enough to start his own company, but for now, he is content to hone his product designing skills in the midst of the start-up culture.
Home is the verdant landscape of the Pacific Northwest, but Daniel enjoys a bit of travel now and then. Between travel, family, work projects, and the personality of an INTJ, he doesn't have much of a social life. He has no illusions that writing a book will change this much.
