TALK: Engineering Reliable Mobile Applications
Speaker: Pranjal Deo

In today’s day & age, many services are being accessed by users through a client application on mobile. What’s the point of five 9s of server availability, if the productionized app is unreliable for users? This talk explains the importance, challenges and best practices of client-side reliability.

Why Mobile and SRE (Site Reliability Engineering)?

- Mobile is nonuniform and uncontrollable
- SRE responsibilities differ in critical ways from infrastructure or server-side application reliability engineering
- Focus on where your end users are (i.e. today many users access services through mobile applications)
- Specific challenges of mobile: Monitoring, Release management, Incident management

Future of SRE for Mobile:

- Visibility into mobile application performance
- Find and react to issues before the user does
- Measure SLIs throughout the product stack (from client to service)

Pranjal Deo is an Engineering Program Manager at Google. Graduated as an Electrical engineer, started as a test automation engineer, then software engineer and took on DevOps (including disaster recovery) responsibilities at her previous company, where she graduated into the role of a Lead App Performance analyst.
