PDXPUG: June 21, 2012
Daniel Patrick Johnson works with many technologies. Since early 2011 this has included Kinect controlled rockem sockem robots, desktop applications in C++, gstreamer, web server migrations, USB drivers, wireless interfaces for microcontrollers, Android, Ruby on Rails, and Puppet. Generally working on whatever is interesting, or pays the bills.
Here’s Daniel’s description of his talk:
“On the Android platform responsiveness, minimizing resource use, and fault tolerance are valued much higher than overall performance. Android applications are recommended to use a local database both as a way to persist data in case of application termination, or network connection error, and as a caching mechanism to minimize network usage. This introduces a significant amount of extra work for the developer, and the sync issues may significantly affect the design of the server side database, and API.
Android libraries try to make this easier. My talk will introduce concepts with code so that you can get started right away.”
