Effective Android Messaging
Messaging is a powerful component of your Android app, opening up new usage scenarios and allowing you to engage your users in brand new ways. But sometimes implementing some of these messaging capabilities on Android can be a bit challenging, especially if you’re not aware of the different choices available and the tradeoffs presented by each one.
Juan will provide an overview of some of the most popular messaging options on the Android Ecosystem, as well as some tips and tricks on how to successfully implement them in your Android apps. We’ll talk about Basic Http messaging, Google’s Cloud Messaging (a.k.a. Push Notifications) and SMS, and finally we’ll touch on some newer techniques like Android’s Network Service Discovery and WebSockets.
This talk draws on some of the challenges faced by the Mobile Team at Eventbrite in enabling event organizers around the globe to replace costly dedicated barcode scanners with run-of-the-mill Android devices for events with thousands of attendees. These techniques also extrapolate to other app scenarios like instant messaging apps, peer-to-peer solutions, multiplayer games, and so on.
