Mobile devices are the preferred means of data access today, but databases are stuck in the mainframe era. Learn how the NoSQL document model can be leveraged for off-line synchronization.

Which data structures provide robust conflict detection and management for multiuser interactive applications? How can your database insulate you from error-prone mobile networks? What performance lessons can we learn from the web world?

See open-source examples so that you can quickly get up to speed with off-line capable synchronizing applications for major mobile platforms. Learn how you can contribute to the open source databases behind this movement.

Attendees will walk away from the talk with an understanding of concrete steps they can take in their development environment to build more reliable, faster and more user-friendly mobile applications.
