Tags: , , , , , , ,

Donn Felker was not able to make it to Philly ETE this year due to circumstances beyond his control. However, Donn is so committed to delivering his talk that he recorded it for us before the conference was even over! Kudos to you, Donn, and so we share his gift with our ETE attendees.

Here is his abstract:

In this session I will discuss what I’ve learned from having two apps consistently reside in the Top 100 Free category in Google Play for the last 3 years (Groupon and MyFitnessPal). I’ll talk about tips, tricks and expose real life issues that you will run into at scale with an Android app that becomes very popular. You will learn what to do, what not to do, and how to properly manage your application and team at scale. From defensive coding and advanced patterns to various forms of testing – I’ll be talking about it here. You’ll walk away with a list of tools and tips to help prepare you and your team for when your app gets featured or makes it to the top 100.
