Web Apps with Offline Mode – Dojo Offline Toolkit

Reading Dion Almaer’s “Web 2. 0 Expo Was Poor?” (I couldn’t be there due to client commitments so I can’t comment myself) I noticed a comment from Brad Neuberg of the Dojo project.

He’s posted a video of the talk he gave at the expo: “Creating Offline Web Applications Within the Browser.” It describes in quite a bit of detail how to use the Dojo Offline Toolkit to enable offline use of Ajax applications.

If you’re not looking for the tech details I still think the first 15-20 minutes is worth watching as he outlines why you might want offline web applications and what characteristics a good framework should provide for such apps.
