App Development with No Server-Side Coding

Developing Android applications with no server-side coding using a Backend-as-a-Service platform

- Mark Piller, CEO of Backendless

The presentation will illustrate the power of BaaS for developing Android applications using Backendless as an example. The focus is on the Backendless APIs available for the Android and Java clients.

Application development is fun except when you have to write mostly the same code over and over. Create, retrieve, update delete… multiply it by the number of database tables, add transactions, thread locking and database scaling and the fun is gone. There is a better way which will help you get your application done faster at a fraction of the cost. Backend-as-a-Service platforms enable mobile and desktop developers to focus on the client-side of the applications while providing complete server-side support including persistence, user registration handling, login, logout, publish/subscribe messaging, push notifications and many more facilities. The presentation will illustrate the power of BaaS for developing Android applications using Backendless as an example.

Mark Piller, CEO
More than 15 years of experience in developing distributed computing applications. Prior to Backendless, Mark worked at webMethods and was responsible for architecting the company’s SOA solution. His experience includes leading the design and implementation of multiple features of Glue, a web-services platform from The Mind Electric that was acquired by webMethods, as well as senior technical positions with ObjectSpace, MCI and SABRE. For the past seven years he has been specializing in building software infrastructure products designed to integrate Flex, Flash, and AJAX applications with a variety of backend systems, including .NET, Java, PHP and Ruby on Rails.
