Earlier this summer, the Offline First community hosted its first ever Offline Camp (@OfflineCamp), a three-day retreat in the Catskill Mountains where 30-plus campers convened – appropriately, off the grid – to discuss issues around Offline First development. Thanks to guest host Jenn Turner (@jennwrites), The New Builders captured some of the sounds from Offline Camp through interviews with some of the organizers, attendees and session presenters, including:

  • Gregor Martynus (@gr2m) of Hoodie walks through the process of organizing Offline Camp and shares some background from the last few years he’s spent building the Offline First community (9:05)
  • Mapzen's Julian Simioni (@juliansimioni) discusses his interest in offline maps and the concept of open, sharable data (18:13)
  • Cure International CTO Joel Worrall (@tangollama) explains how the HospitalRun open source project requires offline-capable applications to serve hospitals in the developing world (24:20)
  • Pedro Teixeira (@pgte), Partner and Chief Futurist at YLD, explores the ways in which Offline First development is a fundamentally new and different approach for developers (31:00)
  • Jane Kim (@janecakemaster), who built the offline-capable exquisite texts collaborative poem generation app, shares a user perspective on apps that work without a network connection (43:34)
  • Nick Colley (@NickColley), from the UK's Government Digital Service, explains his contributions to the PouchDB community and the front-end design implications of Offline First development (48:56)
  • IBM Developer Advocate Bradley Holt (@BradleyHolt), who co-organized Offline Camp and happens to be a frequent contributor to the New Builders podcast, closes the show by talking about future plans for the Offline First community (54:58)
