  1. The Web Platform Podcast : 60: Offline First


    The Offline First Heroes, Jan Lehnardt (@janl), John Kleinschmidt (@jkleinsc), Alex Russell (@slightlylate), and Jake Archibald (@jaffathecake) join forces to chat on why web developers should be designing and building with offline capabilities in mind from the beginning. From emerging standards like ServiceWorker to well thought out web frameworks like & UpUp, there are many differnt approaches and reasons why we would develop with an offline first mentality. There are so many gotchas and so many pro tips that have come out of the lessons learned by these offline web evangelists. For better or worse the technical marvels of development in this engineering arena are hard to visualize demo much like the features of good security or performance. Offline is vital and integral to the web just as security and performance are vand it should not be an afterthought in our designs.

  2. Episode 33 – Client-side Components – (40 minutes)

    Kerry and Rinat return from their summer break to discuss their initial explorations into client-side development.

    This episode, and the two episodes after it, cover a two month period in which Rinat and Kerry went off to write some new client code for their Getting Things Done(tm) sample project.

    They start this three-part spike with a simple WinForms client, and end it with the beginnings of their cross-platform mobile application.

  4. SmashingConf Whistler — John Allsopp on The Web’s Future is Offline

    The Web is in most people’s mind synonymous with the internet. And that of course means no internet connection, no Web. However this association is holding back how, and what, we build for the Web. Just as native apps can, once installed, run on a device even with poor or now connectivity, it’s a little known fact that so too can Web sites and apps. In this session, John will look at the technologies that enable the offline Web, including AppCache, Web Storage, and Service Workers, and more importantly the philosophy behind, and opportunity presented by the “offline first” Web. Whether you’re a developer who builds for the Web, or someone who designs Web experiences, you’ll come away with a whole new understanding of what we can build using Web technologies.

  5. The Web Platform Podcast : 9: Web Accessibility for JavaScript Components and Custom Elements

    In Episode 9, ‘Web Accessibility for JavaScript Components and Custom Elements’. Steve Faulkner (@stevefaulkner) from The Paciello Group and Marcy Sutton (@marcysutton) from Substantial discuss the lack of focus in product development today in building accessible applications & services. Many times web accessibility becomes an afterthought in creating a software product, having little prioritization from the business side until it is a problem. Retrofitting such an important part of our development can make web accessibility seem more like a chore with low ROI for the the time taken to implement it. It can be easy if developers know how to do it and hardly any work when it is successfully incorporated into a development process and it’s valued at the business level.


    With recent advances in the past few years in JavaScript MV* frameworks like Angular, React, & Ember we are seeing the need for web accessibility more and more. Heavy JavaScript applications tend to provide little or wrong functionality for things we take for granted like keyboard access. Examples on modifying these to better attend to user experience traditionally meant lots of overhead in development by forking the framework and updating it constantly. Based on the resources developers typically find in online searches & Roles the lack of good developer examples, WAI ARIA & even simple accessibility is easy to misunderstand.


    Many newer client side frameworks focus on componentization of HTML elements. Angular Directives, Ember Components, React Classes and Web Components. Componentization gives developers a chance to build much faster and easier Web Accessibility using various tools like WAI ARIA roles at a much more focused & reusable level. What is the future of Web Accessibility with these technologies? Why are we so concerned about Web Accessibility?

  6. Episode 34 – Model View Who? – (41 minutes)

    This episode is the second of a three part series on client-side development.

    Kerry and Rinat discuss the changes that were made to the sample’s WinForms client to make it easier to add new features.

    They review the three main contexts in their GTD sample, the benefits of passing around immutable state, and dig into graphical user interface architectures like MVC and MVVM.

    This sets them up for the next episode where they apply MVVM to the sample’s cross-platform mobile application.
