Description

Almost all the apps that we use run on the cloud and store our data there. This has enabled us to collaborate in real-time among users, but we neither have control nor ownership over our data anymore. In this Build Project, we will explore the alternative by building and deploying local-first web applications. You will learn about and use Conflict-free Replicated Data Types (CRDTs), as well as real-time and offline APIs. You will also get familiar with the issues and impact of data privacy for users and businesses.
