Creating a quick and low-code PowerApps app that allows users to work offline on mobile device and to sync data to server or cloud when WiFi is available again sounds like a great idea. However, developing such app to support offline capability can be challenging, especially when dealing with limited local cache and large data. I've developed apps that work mainly offline, seen, and resolved many pain points. I've helped citizen developers resolving many issues during their development.

In this session, I'd like to share my experience and knowledge with the PowerApps development community. We will go over pain points developing offline application and how to handle them, how to troubleshoot performance, how to handle limitations of PowerApps itself, and testing on mobile device.
