Learn how to easily integrate Push Notifications in your mobile applications and your backend systems using the AeroGear UnifiedPush Server, which provides a simple unified API for iOS, Android or Windows Mobile but also the latest Web Push protocol that enables pushing to IoT devices.
For mobile application development, it is crucial to have an active user base, since user interaction is one of the most important parts of a successful mobile app. Push Notifications, a key feature of every mobile operating system, give you a powerful tool to quickly reach your mobile users. In this session, we’ll discuss how Push Notifications work today where every major player provides its own Push Notification service, each with its own proprietary API. We’ll introduce the AeroGear UnifiedPush Server, which provides a simple unified API for mobile operating systems, like iOS, Android or Windows Mobile. The session also takes a look at the new IETF standard called WebPush, which aims to revolutionize how Push Notifications work in the future. The WebPush standard defines is a simple protocol for the delivery of realtime events and is based on HTTP/2, allowing to extend Push Notification delivery to devices outside of their the traditional scope, like Raspberry Pi or other IoT devices. While the WebPush specification has yet to be finalized it has gained a lot of interest from companies like Mozilla, Google, and Microsoft to name a few. Join us to learn more about Push Notifications and their bright future.
