The first ever Offline Camp gets started
All of the campers are here, fed, well-rested and ready for the first full day of Offline Camp. Set in picturesque Jewett, New York, our venue is nestled between the edge of the woods and a beautiful scenic view of a pond, that will later be filled with rowing and kayaking Offline Campers.
Friday night began with food and fun, as campers arrived from nearby New York, Boston, and Vermont, and as far away as the UK, Spain, Germany, and France. Offline Campers eagerly shared their enthusiasm for pushing the concept of Offline First forward.
“In this first Offline Camp I’m hoping to meet the people that have been helping to bootstrap this concept and community,” Pedro Teixeira, CTO of YLD, said. “There, I’m hoping to learn about and discuss the problems, challenges and solutions that will help us deliver reliable applications that are resilient to poor or no network access.”
The first sessions began mid-morning following breakfast. In barcamp, or unconference style, the campers suggested and voted to participate in sessions on offline maps, alerts and notifications, as well as ways to help build the Offline First community.
