Keeping your users engaged is one of the toughest challenges of the app economy. Email has become a very ineffective way of reaching users (only 12% of emails are opened, according to recent study by Mogreet), and social media channels are not too far behind (with only 15% of Facebook updates read). In this webcast, Tim Anglade and Matt Dobson show how Push Notifications can help you connect with the right people, help avoid missed engagement opportunities, and establish deeper relationships, whether your users are just looking to buy something, or looking for a new app to love.

Over 100 developers attended each session. Huge thanks to everyone who attended and made it such an exciting and engaging experience. We had a blast!

I've been hearing about the virtues of NoSQL for a number of years, but only lately did I really have a good opportunity to dig in and see what all the fuss is about. As with many folks, my background with storage technologies has been 99% standard SQL in common relational databases. The big hurdle for me is how do I go about 'thinking' properly in this brave new world of NoSQL. To dig deeper I used a simple music database as an example.
