Orion Unplugged

Session Type: 
Standard [35 minutes]

"The network is reliable" is probably one of the best known fallacies of distributed computing. When using a desktop IDE like Eclipse lack of connectivity is inconvenient but for a Cloud IDE like Orion it has potential to be disastrous. Fortunately Orion has been architected with a clean separation between client and server so that it can still be used effectively without a server. This talk will look at the techniques we use to achieve this separation, the HTML5 AppCache and Local FileSystem, as well as approaches you can use in your own Orion plugins to let them continue to operate when disconnected from the network.
