Performance from the Radio Up

Chris Wilson will give a talk on mobile web dev.

One of my coworkers just gave a great talk on mobile web development - Performance from the Radio Up - that describes the infrastructure of mobile networking, and how to build your content and web apps to account for it. Delighted to give this great talk.

Chris Wilson works on the Google Chrome project in the Google Seattle office as a Developer Advocate. Chris has been an advocate for the open web since he co-authored NCSA Mosaic for Windows, and strives to deserve the title of "the heretic."

    Good presentation. Very few people know that battery life can be optimized by app programmers. Like i said in the meetup, even if we follow best practices there is always chance that other misbehaved apps would bring down the battery life.

    More info on chrome performance tool would be helpful

      You can use Application Resource Optimizer (a free AT&T tool) to test your app and see how it's doing (or see what other apps are misbehaving as well). It basically shows you how your app behaves on any wireless network globally. It gives you actionable steps to improve the performance of your app. It shows those energy tails that Chris talked about, so it's real easy to see what's eating the battery. You can also filter the data by app or even IP. It's available at http://developer.att....­.

    Performance is always relative to the evolution of devices (uPs, GPUs, memory, storage), apps requirements, and the cloud services and OS. I hope G provides roadmaps for development, not just a current snapshot of OS only.
