Creating a separate mobile website is a great idea until someone changes a data source on you. Your users don’t care if your LDAP is down or why they can’t pull up next the class schedule for next semester. In this session you will learn how to plan for the worst; network outages, slow response times and unorganized data. The mobile Web isn’t very useful without content and often that content is gathered from many sources that are out of the developers control. Gathering, protecting and organizing that data is the job of a smart developer and a successful mobile Web presence. This is accomplished by adding an API layer to everything you do. This session will walk you through the ins and outs of creating and maintaining a Web API that can extend far beyond your mobile presence.
