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.
Building apps for Next Billion Users is quite different. Users in emerging markets have unique needs, culture, environment and technological constraints. We are going to talk about the best practices in building apps in terms of connectivity, compatibility, performance and client/server communication.
Facebook Lite is an app built with these users in mind and is strongly committed to building experiences for these users first. In this talk, Noga Tavor aims to share some of the learnings and insights collected along the way of building it.
