The mobile landscape has undergone a tectonic shift in the last couple of years with record numbers of adoption and usage. This has resulted in new ways of looking at old problems and re-definition of user experience in a mobile age. With this territory comes a whole new set of challenges as well as opportunities to re-invent traditional experiences with the aid of the smartphone. This session aims to cover the limits of these possibilities and explore what’s next.

From Press From Press Feb 13, 20147:23 pm

A RaspberryPi model is a 35$ piece of device which can run an OS from a SD card.

A bluetooth 4.0 usb module is the only thing you need to build a pibeacon.

From Press From Press Feb 13, 20147:20 pm

Android is a little late to the game. They introduced Bluetooth LE in Android 4.3 or above.

From Press From Press Feb 13, 20147:17 pm

with something like this you can create a location enabled checkin app which will check-in for you automatically.

From Press From Press Feb 13, 20147:16 pm

if you are on Android 4.3, you can go to the above URL and install the demo app to have a proximity enabled app which will transmit a low frequency signal and will pop up a smiley face on another device within the range.

From Press From Press Feb 13, 20147:09 pm

Bluetooth is a very low energy consuming technology which make it really affordable. It is optimized for low power and low latency communication.

Downfall: you can’t stream data.

From Press From Press Feb 13, 20147:06 pm

Smart Objects and Internet of Things. Data connectivity requirements are exploding.

There are challenges. Which are: Security and Management concerns.

Bluetooth is a big enabler.

From Press From Press Feb 13, 20147:03 pm

Analyzing your customers patters could be very useful as well.

Your stream of data is analyzed by the API manager, filtered, and after a long process the final out put comes.

From Press From Press Feb 13, 20147:01 pm

Context is KING.

Knowing and recognizing mutual interests between two ends, is very important. To enhance user experience and to deliver more better, analyzing these data and then mining them is very risky and result giving as well.

From Press From Press Feb 13, 20146:58 pm

Personalization and Predictive analytics.

This depends on users preferences.
Location.
Behavior and predictions.
Social Recommendations.

an API does more than proxying your requests.

Authentication, Anaylitics, Meteringa and throtting. – Aanuradha

From Press From Press Feb 13, 20146:32 pm

At times, exposing your API is not a good idea. Why? Security, scalability and complience issues.

From Press From Press Feb 13, 20146:31 pm

A successful API should consider having a full life cycle.

Plan->design->run->manage->engage->consume->plan…. – Anuradha

With APIs comes a whole lot of new challenges to channel and keep track. – Anuradha

From Press From Press Feb 13, 20146:19 pm

Technology is evolving fast. very fast.

1995-> why do i need a web site.
