Two years ago I was lead developer for one of the largest mobile websites in the Netherlands (500K pageviews per day), and we spent weeks squeezing out the last percentages in performance. How amazing to see that the work we’ve done back then is now considered obsolete. Browsers have evolved, web standards have arised and today we can give any (mobile) web application an incredible performance boost by creating smart caching strategies; leveraging offline storage with indexed DB and local storage, appcache, and normal browser cache.

This talk is an overview of lessons learned while building mobile web applications with native capabilities for Firefox OS.

Jan Jongboom got in a real life fight when someone declared javascript ‘just some scripting language’. During the day he channels his javascript love as a member of the Firefox OS core team at Telenor Comoyo, making bad jokes about VBScript and dreaming of happy hour. The only native Brit in his previous company described him in one word: ‘cheeky’. You can see him live on stage regularly, with talks about javascript, Firefox OS and mobile development.
