Building fast, high performing, mobile app experiences starts with the application code running on the device. However, optimizing for the network layer is often the difference between success and failure.

Mobile app developers face a wide array of challenges including device and OS fragmentation, spotty and unpredictable network conditions, and users that are anything but stationary. Making matters worse is the often limited visibility into real end user experience and how application responsiveness correlates with key business success metrics such as bounce rate, user retention, and conversion rate.

Learn about the key essentials and technologies you should be aware of to effectively and efficiently optimize mobile apps for speed, scale, and reliability.

During this session we will discuss:

  • - The role of a Content Delivery Network (CDN) - optimizing speed, scale and protection at the edge
  • - Leveraging the right SDK libraries to get more performance and intelligence
  • - Simplifying the optimization of images for all devices
  • - Proper management and protection and APIs
  • - Measuring app performance with real-time user data
