(Presented by New Relic) Too often, developers think of a mobile app as simply code running on the device. A mobile app is much more than that. Every web API used by an app becomes as much a part of the app as the code running on the device. But while mobile developers have control over their code, they don't always have control over the APIs they use. Web APIs and their infrastructure impact app performance and ultimately the user experience.
This presentation covers some of the essential aspects of app performance management when web APIs are present, including:
-HTTP headers are your friend--stop ignoring all they have to tell you
-Control your network connections on the device—don't just leave things to the OS
-Configure all your caches and use them
-Whatever you do, measure early and often
The session includes a customer story from the CTO of Mirego, and demos of New Relic mobile app performance monitoring, where you see how to drill down into specific requests to see performance by response time, throughput, and data transfer size.
