DrupalTO Meetup Enhancing Drupal with PWA & IndexedDB for Offline Functionality

The Toronto Drupal community is set to host an enlightening session on "Drupal Offline: PWA & IndexedDB for Low Connectivity Areas" on Tuesday, June 18th, from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM EDT at CSI Spadina, 192 Spadina Ave., Toronto. The session will be presented by Abhai Sasidharan from Therefore Interactive, offering a sneak peek of his upcoming talk at DrupalCon Barcelona 2024. This meetup will address the critical issue of maintaining seamless user experiences on Drupal websites in areas with limited internet connectivity through Progressive Web Apps (PWA) and IndexedDB.

The session will highlight a real-world project undertaken for a renowned NGO, showcasing how Drupal's client-side storage capabilities were enhanced to enable offline functionality. Attendees will learn about the fundamentals of PWAs, the capabilities of IndexedDB for offline data storage, and practical use cases for these technologies in Drupal. Abhai Sasidharan will provide in-depth explanations, code snippets, and a working demo to illustrate how the application allows users to view, update, delete, and create content without an active internet connection, greatly benefiting field staff operating in remote areas.

Hosts, Pierre Marcel and Aidan Foster have also arranged for a post-presentation discussion and networking session at Hotel Ocho. The event is supported by Kalamuna, who provided the CSI space for the meetup. The organizers seek new speakers and fresh insights for future presentations, with Pierre being the point of contact for interested individuals. The Toronto Drupal community, established in 2006, continues to thrive and looks forward to welcoming both longtime members and newcomers.
