Why is mobile different to desktop? When it comes to data there are lots of difference such as processing and most importantly data transmission. Our goal as developers should always be to make the fastest apps possible, however mobile adds a lot of constraints to the platforms we are used to developing for on the desktop. This talk will focus how you can avoid the problems that network latency creates by being smart with your server implementation.

We’ll explore:

  • How the network works
  • Why phones are much more susceptible to the latency trap than wired connections
  • How YQL can help you aggregate your web service calls before you the mobile device
  • Using JSON and JavaScript to get any data onto the device in an aggregated stream
