SUNNYVALE, Calif., Aug. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Spansion Inc. (NYSE: CODE), a global leader in embedded systems solutions, today announced the election of O.C. Kwon to Spansion's Board of Directors. Kwon has served as an advisor to the Board since January 2014.
Kwon has over 30 years experience in the semiconductor industry. He is currently senior advisor to SK Hynix and before that was CEO of SK Hynix.
"We are extremely pleased to welcome O.C. to Spansion's Board of Directors. O.C is an international figure in the semiconductor industry," said John Kispert, CEO of Spansion.

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.
