Presentation: "Mobile, Backends and Beer - how APIs are changing how we build applications"

Time: Wednesday 16:50 - 17:50

Location: Salon A-B


A look into how the explosion of APIs is changing how we build mobile applications. The backends of mobile applications are not a simple API on top of a database, but an integration with lots of different APIs - from social services to CRMs to SMS/phone services like Twilio. In this talk we'll look at these integration challenges and how mobile developers can best adapt to this new landscape. And there will be beer (you'll have to come to find out how that relates).
