Andrea will be speaking at MobOS 2019 about “Backend driven UI on Mobile Applications, a hybrid approach”

Building user interfaces is a substantial part of Mobile Application development. In the most common approach, the UI of an app is built on the client side. Nevertheless, a few companies have already explored the advantages of controlling the UI from the backend. We will first explore the benefits and the problems of a “Backend driven UI” approach. In the second part, I will present a hybrid approach that was successfully adopted at SoundCloud to build the home screen last year. This will include a live demo of a dynamic UI that is partially controlled from the backend.
