In this session we will discuss progress in local first software development on mobile platforms, and the CRDT pattern that can underpin this.

We will discuss how this can enable users to synchronise data between devices whilst also maintaining control of this data and building a "cloud optional" architecture.

We will also discuss the requirements to be satisfied in building a local first Database with offline, multi-protocol, peer-to-peer synchronisation, cross platform capabilities and the lessons learned in building the Ditto SDK.
