Need for Speed: Why Applications With No Database and No Services are Fast
Great applications need data, so it's little surprise that one of the hottest topic over the last decade has been big data. But is all this data slowing your application down? Likely, the answer's yes. It's slow to retrieve from a database; it's slow to return from a service; and it's hard to make it available offline. Why? Many apps aren't architected for speed. We will look at a real world application that has no database, and doesn't expose services for the application to call. Instead, it shows up-to-the-minute data which is available offline and most importantly is really, really fast. You'll learn how you can unlock the performance of your mobile application by re-architecting the backend.
