Joomla as a mobile App backend.
Presented at J & Beyond, 2015 in Prague.
This talk described ideas, principles and methods related to building mobile App backends in Joomla. The Joomla front end is an ideal tool to provide app content administrators the ability to control their app. We'll look at several examples of this process for Apps developed for the UK education sector. The Apps typically use RESTful JSON interfaces to pull and push data to and from the Joomla backend.
Within Joomla the FieldsAttatch a jBackend are used and extended upon. We'll look at the Joomla solution, what we used and what we added. We'll also touch on App development, including cross platform native app development with Ti Appcelerator, continuous integration of multiple rolling releases, team skill-sets, privacy issues and business cases.
It'll be a narrative of the project's journey, ideas, paths and reflections.
Although there will be some technical detail, it should appeal more generally too.
