All speakers are requested to be available for officehours during the conference. This will be a scheduled 30 minute block of time during which attendees can meet you at a designated space for open Q&A offstage.

There is only one speaker per session. Attendance is free for selected speakers. HasGeek will cover your travel to and accommodation in Bangalore from anywhere in the world for speakers delivering full sessions (30 minutes or longer). As our budget is limited, we will prefer speakers from locations closer home, but will do our best to cover for anyone exceptional. If you are able to raise support for your trip, we will count that as speaker travel sponsorship.

Commitment to open source

HasGeek believes in open source as the binding force of our community. If you are describing a codebase for developers to work with, we'd like it to be available under a permissive open source license. If your software is commercially licensed or available under a combination of commercial and restrictive open source licenses (such as the various forms of the GPL), please consider picking up a sponsorship. We recognize that there are valid reasons for commercial licensing, but ask that you support us in return for giving you an audience. Your session will be marked on the schedule as a sponsored session.

Non Accepted Proposals

If your proposal is accepted for a session > 30 minutes long, we will cover your event ticket.

If your proposal is not accepted, you can buy a ticket at the same rate as was available on the day you proposed. We’ll send you a code.

Offline support for business apps - WHY & HOW

Submitted Oct 17, 2013

Offline support for a mobile app nowadays has become an implicit expectaion. With lot of apps allowing users to do things, without thinking whether they are connected to the network, have intermittent or no network connection. This happens to most of us while traveling or in some areas which have sparse connectivity. Users would still expect the app to not throw them out completely, instead allow them to do things normally and let the app intelligently handle network related stuff when they are back online.

The talk will be focusing more on architecture of a system which can adapt to offline or online and talks about key components which you should think of when designing an app which doesnt die with no network.

Outline

There are couple of things which come to our mind, when we start thinking about making an app work in offline mode.

  • How do we keep the data consistent

  • How do we handle stale data

  • What is the frequency when we should sync the data.

  • What type of data and how much of data do we cache

  • Is there a threshold on how long can he be offline ( for critical transactional application)

  • How do we handle conflicts for multi edits on the same entity – Conflict resolution

  • How do we keep track of audit trails for business applications

We will be sharing our learnings and the key components and workflows to keep in mind to enable an app to work offline.
