Solving for multiple events in mobile Applications

Submitted by Kanav Arora (@kanavarora) on Monday, 19 November 2018

Section: Full talk Technical level: Intermediate


As mobile applications scale, there are third party assets which might want to track client behaviour. These requirements usually come from product managers/marketeers who are business heavy in their specifications but are implemented by developers who have a technology bias supported by existing engineering stack and infrastructure choices. To bridge this gap is a difficult and complex problem. This talk aims to provide a better design to address it.


- Describe the problem at hand. - And that will be solving it from a design first approach

Trivial solution
- Take an example app - Describe the trivial solution in code - Problems with this approach

Proposed Solution
- Definitions - Steps to achieving the proposed solution

Pros of the solution & Impact

Implementation Details
- open source implementations
