The rise of mobile devices has spawned new issues in developing websites and applications (e.g., screen size). Often overlooked in the complexity of mobile development is the network connection speed of your end user. Most mobile developers live in highly connected areas – with fast 3-4G/Wi-Fi connections. How does your app perform in areas with less coverage? How about in areas of high congestion (conferences/sporting events)? What steps can you take to improve performance (or even change the UI for low network availability)? I’ll discuss tools to simulate various networking environments and development techniques to overcome these challenges.
