Thanks to all who attended our recent webcast: From Napkin to App: Rapidly Prototype and Build for Mobile. The video and slides are below.
Brian Mulloy and Alan Languirand discuss the lessons they've learned quickly getting from concept to app. They provide a recipe for rapid app development and a list of the tools and techniques to successfully get from concept to prototype in just a few days.
We're very pleased and excited to announce the immediate public beta availability of UGC, the Usergrid Command Line. UGC lets you easily connect to Apigee App Services accounts, query data and administer your system. https://github.com/
In my last blog post, Optimizing for Mobile? Bounded, Piggy-Backed Mobile Network Transmissions, I talked about a way to reduce battery consumption and optimize apps for mobile.
The current implementation of the Apigee Mobile Analytics SDK (Android and iOS) follows a simplistic timed interval (60 seconds by default) for upload of secondary traffic (device metrics). This guarantees that the radio will be in the high state (turned on if it were off) at least once per minute. We will be revving our SDK to build in a bounded, piggy-backed strategy for secondary traffic to support the arguments...
Cheezburger is the largest social humor destination on the Internet: it's all your funny in one place. Their visitors create and remix memes, share their favorite funny pictures and use Cheezburger's platform to make their own humor sites. Cheezburger is serious about making the world a happier place and counts a passionate fan base of 24 million people.
We spoke to Rick Simpkinson, technical product manager at Cheezburger, Inc. Rick talked about the evolution of their API program from XML to JSON and their commitment to standards such as OAuth2.
Doing mobile app development? Need to optimize? One way to conserve battery is by piggybacking networking transmissions. To preserve battery life, the cellular radio in mobile devices gets put into a lower powered state after some inactivity, and then gets turned off after an additional period of inactivity. Once the radio is off, it takes some time for the radio to be turned on and for the radio to negotiate a new connection with a nearby cell tower.
