This week, Teri Chadborne joins to Thom introduce Offline Camp, a gathering of people who come together to focus on developing with an Offline First mentality before jumping into a great discussion. Bradley Holt, IBM dev advocate, led a discussion with Daniela Borges from YLD, Myles Borins from Google, and Boaz Sender from Bocoup, on Offline First as a social movement. They begin with introductions (04:23) and jump right in to everyone discussing what offline first means (06:00), why it’s necessary for everything to be built offline first (08:22), what personal interests everyone has in offline first (10:53), offline first as a social movement and how it can impact people (16:33), how offline first is being iterated on the web and mobile platforms (23:15), the way offline first is making the web better (25:59), and how offline first “levels the playing field (32:40).
