Why is mobile different to desktop? When it comes to data there are lots of difference such as processing and most importantly data transmission. Our goal as developers should always be to make the fastest apps possible, however mobile adds a lot of constraints to the platforms we are used to developing for on the desktop. This talk will focus how you can avoid the problems that network latency creates by being smart with your server implementation.
