After playing to two full houses at SXSW, the panel "From Mobile First and Offline First" is taking over the airwaves of the New Builders Podcast.

For this third go-round, Offline Camp alums Maureen McElaney (IBM Watson Data Platform), Gregor Martynus (Neighbourhoodie), Nolan Lawson (Microsoft Edge and PouchDB) and Dan Zajdband (OpenNews) are joined by Alex Russell (Google Chrome) for a wide-ranging conversation on Offline First application development - the process of building apps to maintain performance even during network disruptions or downtime.

The panel discusses the indicators of a poor offline experience (12:45), how progressive web apps relate to offline first development (16:43), their current offline first projects and favorite tools and frameworks, including IBM Cloudant and Apache® CouchDB™ (23:10), why offline first could spell the end of the save button and lead to new design patterns (37:23), and how to get started (and what not to do) with offline first (54:26).

To learn more about Offline First app development, subscribe to Offline Camp on Medium, Twitter at @OfflineCamp or YouTube at Offline First.
