Lanyrd's Mobile Strategy for Rapid Iteration

A session at Future of Web Apps London 2012

Monday 15th October, 2012

2:25pm to 3:05pm (GMT)

Simon will take a deep technical dive in to the workings of Lanyrd's iOS and Mobile Web apps. This will include their experiences taming the HTML5 application cache and the tricks used in their native iPhone app to experiment with new features, without the overhead of the App Store approval process.

The golden rule of startups is to iterate quickly, but modern mobile development can feel frustratingly slow for teams that are used to building software at web speeds. At Lanyrd, they have been forced to come up with creative ways of iterating their mobile products quickly, across multiple platforms, while ensuring that the key functionality works in both online and offline contexts.
