Backgrounding/Multit­asking in Mobile

Session Info:

Background processing, or Multitasking in Mobile Applications is far different than multitasking in desktop apps. In this session we'll take a look at what that means in iOS and Android. We'll examine the various approaches to multitasking in both platforms, as well as recommendations and guidelines for when to use which.

Speaker: Nina Vyedin

Nina started her hacking career working on our future robot overlords, which lead her to C# and eventually to Xamarin. She joined Xamarin’s documentation team a year and a half ago as an intern, and has been hanging on for dear life ever since. When she is not writing code or docs, she can be found making music, wrangling unicorns, or curating her ever-growing collection of sunglasses.
