After a summer break, Prince Building Tech Talks returns for September with the following presentations:

Wrangling Mobile APIs: Rekindling the Server/Client Relationship

With the explosion of fully featured and connected native Mobile Apps, we have re-introduced many client/server problems that we thought we did away with in web development. It's time to conquer these again through Mobile APIs that ease communication for native Mobile developers across platforms to the server; not just technically, but also strategically.

Photis Patriotis, Director of Engineering at Prolific Interactive, a mobile product agency, will introduce the issues and how Prolific Interactive has built an open-source framework to help them overcome these challenges.

Fast Times at Thrillist HQ: Tools and tips to make your site faster

While nowadays any web framework can help you get a site up and running in no time, one question is often overlooked - how long does it take for the user to see and interact with it? Joe Higgins, developer at Thrillist and JackThreads, will show you how to diagnose your site's speed problems, and will give often-overlooked tips on how you can make your site load and perform as fast as possible.

We'll also have refreshments and time for networking at the event.
