Taking Web Applications Offline, to the Desktop, and beyond

Category: Adobe, Gears, Presentation

Ryan Stewart of Adobe and I got to give a joint talk this morning that covered Adobe AIR, Gears, and how you can build offline and desktop applications right now.

Obviously, Ryan gave an overview of AIR, and I did the same for Gears. We also discussed reasons to be excited about Web development, some of the ideas that are out there in the community, and how AIR and Gears can be seen as complementary.

We had some requests to put the slides online, so here they are below. I know it is hard to peruse slides without the talk over, but just think of it as a fun exercise to wonder what we said :)

If you are at Web 2.0 Expo, give me a shout on twitter.

I’ve never understood what good is the presentation without the audio? It’s like hearing a telephone conversation from one side.

Is ajaxian represented at the conf? I’m there too; it’s quite an experience.

For those of us who can’t attend, is any of this being recorded or streamed?

Call me crazy, but haven’t you been able to do this with Morfik for two or three years?

This slide show just felt like a reminder of what Adobe AIR and Google Gears is. I don’t really feel I got anything about taking my web applications offline, the desktop, and beyond (as the title describes) then besides what we already know. It also didn’t point out what reasons to be excited about web development, I still feel the same. *sigh*
