Now, you can use mobile and Web technology to control and monitor devices so how well you designing and developing your mobile application APIs becomes even more important. Attendees will learn: * The importance of segmenting your architecture * When to build a “generic” interface that considers the broad set of customers that might access the app or device vs a narrowly-focused API that serves a device-specific function * How to integrate segmented APIs into a coherent system * How to implement logging in order to understand the function and performance of segmented architectures * Some of the pitfalls of device-specific APIs and how to avoid them
