Amit Rao, Why mobile application performance monitoring (APM) matters?
Consumers expect your mobile app to launch in no more than 2 seconds. And if they’re unhappy with it in any way, there’s a good chance you won’t see them again. This is why mobile application performance management (APM) matters, and why performance should be a key area of focus in any mobile app creation process. Mobile APM lets you see the end-to-end performance of your app with deep and actionable insight into real users, sessions, and finger swipes, as they happen. This talk will describe and compare the existing technologies and tools for mobile APM and the mobile APM solution I developed for Mint iOS.
Philly CocoaHeads is the Philadelphia area Mac and iPhone programming group, a chapter of the worldwide CocoaHeads. All skill levels are welcome. The only requirement is an interest in Apple-related technologies and moderate tolerance for geeking out.
