In this session, hear directly from HTC and EasyTaxi, who share their architecture stories of how they built powerful mobile backend services on AWS. Learn how HTC built a news aggregation service (BlinkFeed), a photo-sharing service (HTC Share), and a phone backup service (HTC Backup) on AWS. Also learn how they used AWS for deploying server code, provisioning handsets, and business intelligence, and how they launched these services worldwide, with high availability and low latency in just 6 months.
EasyTaxi is building the world's largest taxi mobile app. EasyTaxi shares their experience building an app as they scaled to 35+ countries and thousands of transactions per second. They discuss how they had to reinvent their architecture and infrastructure to meet several cultural as well technical challenges such as adapting to different kinds of access, mobile networks, and working with different charsets to change server locations.
