Google Next Billion Users (NBU): Android and Data Best Practices for NBU Markets

Presented by SGInnovate. Partnered with Google.

At this 4th edition, we will focus on Android and data best practices for NBU markets. Building apps for Next Billion Users is quite different. Users in merging markets have unique needs, culture, environment and technological constraints. We are going to talk about the best practices in building Android apps in terms of connectivity, compatibility, performance and client/server communication.

The internet's future lies with its next billion users. They are coming online through smartphones and using the Internet in radically new ways. There is massive potential and innovation to help solve their challenges with technology. The Next Billion Users (NBU) initiative at Google is strongly committed to building products and experiences for these users first, and this series of talks aim to share some of what we've learnt so far along the way.
