Session

Hacking with (and on) Gears

Aaron Boodman, Google, Inc.

Track: Web Applications (client-side and server-side)
Date: Wednesday, July 25
Time: 2:35pm - 3:20pm
Location: Portland 252

Google Gears is an open source browser extension that allows developers to build web applications that can run offline.

In this session, Aaron will show you how to implement Gears-enabled applications by example. We'll briefly cover the fundamentals of the three major APIs, before delving into more interesting design questions such as synchronization and autoupdating.

We'll conclude with some demos of upcoming Gears features, as well as talk about how to get involved with hacking on Gears itself.
