WPO meetup on Mobile Performance and Operations

  • March 2, 2012 · 6:00 PM

Hi All,

I think everyone really enjoyed the first meetup in januari with lots of interesting people and discussions about both web performance and operations culture in Amsterdam. So, time for the next meetup.

The theme of this meetup is mobile: what do you do to create an excellent (high performance) mobile experience for your users and what impact does this have on your operations team(s). We've got 2 great speakes lined up to talk about development, scalability and performance....Join us to discuss mobile and more.


18:00 Open doors at HyvesHQ

18:30 Introduction

18:45 Hyves: Mobile app development with HTML5 and Javascript

In this talk, Emiel van Liere, Mobile Development Team Lead, will talk about how hyves supports multiple mobile frameworks with minimal effort by use of html5 and javascript. Topics will be mobile architecture, buildsystems, testing frameworks and how hyves uses phonegap. 

19:20 Short break

19:30 Nimbuzz: Be More Mobile!

Nimbuzz is a communication platform which provides services to make calls, send messages and share files, on any mobile device, desktop computer or Internet browser. Nico Klasens and other core team members will talk us through how almost 3,5 million users use the service daily through a mobile device and at peak time more than[masked] user sessions are online. In the last years, the  number of users doubled each 6 month. In this talk we will provide some insights in what we have and what rules we apply throughout our architecture to cope with the growth. Of course we will not leave out the dirty details of the bits and bytes we send around for our users.

20:05 Drinks & networking

23:00 Close

Spread the word

We'd like to expand the community around web performance and operations topics in Amsterdam, especially since there are so many internet startups based in Amsterdam. If you know someone who you think should be here, point them to this meetup. If you know a speaker / company with an interesting story to tell, let us know !

    Great to get to such a level of good (and useful) detail from both Hyves and Nimbuzz in their presentations.

    Learning about Hyves technical choices to make their hybrid mobile site performant was very useful.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
