By Lead Web Developer Filip Mares
The Pulse web app is built with a mixture of backbone.js/Django/YepNope.js. This talk will give an overview of our architecture and conventions for developing the app, as well as discuss some limitations in performance and how we've overcome them.
One of the most delightful features in Pulse is the automatic syncing of user's sources across their devices. This tech talk will cover the architecture and implementation of our syncing service, from both app and server perspectives. We will go over real world considerations, including speed, efficiency, offline access and user interface decisions. We will provide specific best practices for iOS and Android apps as well.
