Web and mobile apps shouldn't stop working when there's no network connection. Based on Apache CouchDB, PouchDB is an open source syncing JavaScript database that runs within a web browser. Offline-first apps that use PouchDB can provide a better, faster user experience—both offline and online.

Learn how to build offline-enabled responsive mobile web apps using the HTML5 Offline Application Cache and PouchDB. We’ll also discuss how to build cross-platform apps or high-fidelity prototypes using PouchDB, Cordova, and Ionic. PouchDB can also be run within Node.js and on devices for Internet of Things (IoT) applications.

This talk includes code examples for creating a PouchDB database, creating a new document, updating a document, deleting a document, querying a database, synchronization PouchDB with a remote database, and live updates to a user interface based on database changes.
