Delighting Developers with Cloud Services

At MobileBeat 2012 I was invited to speak on a panel with Navin Chudda of Mayfield Fund, Scott Kveton of Urban Airship, and Brian Wong of Kiip about cloud service options and benefits for mobile developers. The discussion was vey fun and lively, and I wanted to share some of the stuff we talked about.

  • How do I help developers discover cloud services and educate them about how to choose the right cloud services to build their app? The first thing to think about is how your app is structured. Does its core functionality requred cloud services to share content? Or are cloud service features required just optional features? 
  • How do I get distribution for my app through other app providers?
  • How do I understand the user flow of my app and its performance?
