Track: Mobile and IoT at Scale


Day of week:

Building a mobile app that can handle millions of users, each of whom may access it up to 40 times/day, requires new product thinking around front and back-end systems. IoT systems can generate 40TB of data in only a few hours. In these sessions we will discuss how to design and build effective mobile and IoT applications, and how to scale those applications through new growth and technology architecture approaches.

Senior Software Engineer (Android) at Etsy

In the ten years Etsy has been in business, it’s become a well-oiled web team. Built on continuous deployment and monitoring, Etsy web has a diverse range of product teams. They build fast, ship, and then sometime in the distant future the mobile team would realize that feature needs to get in.

We decided this wasn’t the Etsy way to build mobile. We dissolved the traditional Android and iOS teams and trained tons of web developers in app development. This talk attempts to break down...

The internet of things (“IOT”) is destined to spark the next big wave of innovation in the enterprise. Like any other big enterprise software trend, the transition from standalone solutions to platforms is starting to happen opening the door to one of the most exciting enterprise software categories: the IOS platform as a service (PaaS).

This session will explore the characteristics of the IOT PaaS and it’s relationship with predecessor PaaS architectures. The session will focus on...

Analytics platforms like Google Analytics, Flurry and Mixpanel have spent a great deal of energy promoting data-driven development. The unfortunate reality is that data-driven strategies promote over-analysis and inaction. Mobile app teams are inundated with data, but rarely get actionable insights.

This talk will focus on strategies, techniques and tools that can help manage the deluge of data that mobile apps generate. The talk will leverage examples from leading apps to help...

Taking Responsive a Step Further

More and more, we think about responsive design beyond just RWD. The future of interactions is being redefined each day with new devices, emerging ecosystems and unplanned user flows.

Could responsive design be perceived as intelligent? Should our daily tools act (and feel) smarter? Is it too much to ask for designers and developers to go that extra mile, and minimize the friction that is often created by poor interactions,...

The rapidly increasing power & capabilities of mobile devices is driving higher-than-ever user expectations, and the need for differentiated mobile applications. Meanwhile, most developers are still caught up in the old client/server model of development, leading to suboptimal user experiences and escalating server costs. This talk will explore the challenges & opportunities in developing for this new mobile cloud, where most of you processing power is not in your datacenter, but in...
