From Development to Production: Tips to Optimise Android App Deployments

Deploying Android app updates such as bug fixes, enhancements, or new features is significantly more complex than it is for web apps or backend services.

For mobile, you have little control over the official app publication platforms (Google Play Store) for mobile, so there is no guarantee your updates will be published immediately.

Furthermore, even when updates are published, users will not receive those updates until they upgrade their apps through the app stores. This means that if a user has a mobile app version with a bug, they’ll be stuck with that bug until a new version is released and they upgrade. As a result, the mobile app development life cycle is much less forgiving of bugs.

In this session, I will be talking about how to optimise Android app deployments from development to production including different and important tips and practices for developing, testing, releasing, and monitoring.
