REST in Peace: We need new tools and techniques for mobile app interactions

The difference between mobile and web takes on a stark physical form. The sleek iPhone in your pocket is a far cry from that big-screened desktop that used to dominate the world of connectivity and internet-based productivity.

On the backend, the difference is just as stark. The pure client-server relationship is no longer applicable, and approaches like REST and long-polling are found wanting when coding for a mobile application. In short, if you build your mobile app like you’d build a desktop web application, you’re doomed. The rise of mobile has brought with it a different infrastructure, different devices and platforms, requiring an entirely new approach to data rich interactions.

In this session, attendees will learn about best practices, emerging trends, pitfalls and more within mobile development from the companies that are innovating the space, including: 
1. Why keeping your app’s data fresh is important
2. The importance -- and future -- of deep-linking technology
3. The value of effective push notifications
4. Best practices for global data streaming
5. The importance of low-latency data transfer
6. The problem with real world device connectivity
7. The intolerance of consumers for delay or error
8. Application updates propagate unevenly, backwards compatibility is essential
