Google has announced some big news for Ajax developers at Google Developer Day. The announcement is Google Gears, an open source runtime to allow you to build Offline Web applications.
Some may think “hmm, what about Dojo Offline?” The great news is that the Dojo crew were in the loop wrt this project, and Brad has ported Dojo Offline to use Google Gears as the base platform.
This is fantastic news, as it means that Dojo and Google are working together, instead of fragmenting. The end result is that the open Web will end up with a much better offline solution.
We interviewed Brad Neuberg, who is working on Dojo Offline thanks to SitePen.
The discussion was a lot of fun, and covered Brad’s thoughts on the offline problem, and how Google Gears and Dojo Offline fit together.
I can’t wait to see what the community comes up with, especially to solve the tough syncing problems.
Without further ado, listen to the interview.
ps. I apologize for the un-produced feel of this podcast. We got to do the interview at the last minute, and wanted to get the content out there for you in a timely manner.
