Fragments 2019

Fragments 2019

State of mobile engineering, state of platforms, hardware and user research.

What you can expect from the Bangalore edition of Fragments on 30 March:

Fragments was launched in response to the fragmented nature of engineering and software development for mobile. Much changed for mobile engineering in 2017 when React Native entered the landscape and cross-platform mobile development took off in a big way.

At the recently concluded ReactFoo, we talked not only about the ecosystem emerging with ReactFoo, but also how organizations are structuring teams for Android, iOS and cross-platform mobile development.

Coming back to Fragments, the Android versus iOS debate seems to be settled with Android winning the turf. Now, with Flutter taking off as a platform for mobile engineering, the battleground has opened between React Native versus Flutter. Who will win is not only a matter of adoption and user base metrics, but also which platform has a stronger community around it.
On 30 March, speakers Priyanka Sabhagani and Ajin Asokan will share BookMyShow’s and Zerodha’s experiences (respectively) with React Native and Flutter, helping participants evaluate each platform’s strength and weaknesses. We look forward to deeper discussions around Flutter, where the platform has piqued a great deal of interest from developers (who have to write less code), but greater skepticism about Flutter’s capabilities with respect to data storage and related issues from senior developers.

Apart from Flutter, the Bangalore edition of Fragments will feature talks on Kotlin and native app development. An interesting question to discuss here is the decision to go native versus when not to go native with your app. Which factors inform such a decision?
The other discussion which Raghunath Jawahar, Varsha Saha and Abhinav Rastogi will take up is what native app developers can learn from the mature web front-end architectures. The discussion will steer around the following topics:

  1. The dynamic nature of JavaScript versus static languages like Java/Kotlin/Swift which is used to develop native mobile apps.
  2. Expectations and user experience on web versus mobile.
  3. The asynchronous nature of mobile platforms and their lifecycles – the unique challenges this factor presents.

Finally, Fragments Bangalore will showcase talks on:

  1. Image uploads and Contraint and Motion layout.
  2. Optimizing the size of your mobile app.
  3. Voice, and its role in building augmented experiences for mobile apps.
  4. How the concept of Seams can be applied for building flexible and testable apps.
  5. Building predictable and high performance workflows for mobile app engineering.

Designing High Growth Products

Submitted Feb 15, 2019

Designing products which grow exponentially in user base is a lost art. We design and develop apps which hit a slack in growth after a while, because they are not designed keeping two fundamental concepts in mind - user don’t buy your product they hire your product and the product we develop should stick with the user.
This talk aims at giving a detailed framework for understanding your user’s need with a prespective of for which job will user hire your product, how and what part of job your product will be able to complete. It will also provides you with various techniques of providing an experience which make your product stick with your user.

Speaker bio

Currently, I am working as a product management ninja at Shipmnts.com where we are set on the journey of reinventing the Global Shipping Industry. At Shipmnts, I understand the product requirements of users within a complex domain, prioritize them from a business standpoint and a user successes point of view and then architect the solution along with a super talented team.
In short I am on a journey of building an operating system for global trade.
