  • Service Assurance in Private LTE/5G Networks

    This article talks about service assurance in the context of cellular networks, how private networks pose additional needs, and how an end-to-end service assurance framework can be designed and developed for such networks.

  • Mobile Video-Conferencing Using Jitsi

    In this article, we will look at alternatives for providing video meetings on mobile devices. We take Jitsi as a popular open source option, which provides Jitsi Meet, an ad-hoc video meetings service, and JaaS, a service platform for developers. Looking at user engagement data, we see there’s no "one size fits all" solution.

  • The Parity Problem: Ensuring Mobile Apps are Secure across Platforms

    The problem of security parity is a big one, but it’s part of a larger problem: a general lack of security in mobile apps. By embracing automation for security implementation to the same or greater degree than it has been adopted for feature development, developers can ensure that every app they release for every platform will be protected from hackers, fraudsters, and cybercriminals.

  • InfoQ Culture & Methods Trends Report - March 2022

    The culture and methods trends report for 2022 shows that organizations, teams, and individuals face challenges on multiple fronts. Tackling hybrid work, the impact of the great resignation, wellness, diversity, and inclusion are topics that leaders need to address head-on to build creative and collaborative cultures

  • A Quick Look at Advanced IoT Sensors for the Enterprise Going Digital

    Thanks to IoT developing at a rapid pace, devices, including sensors, are becoming more affordable, and the entire ecosystem has gotten smarter. These results allow businesses to satisfy more specific needs according to their manufacturing process, as well as to take measurements in complex conditions. In this article we will provide an overview of where IoT sensors currently stand.

  • InfoQ Mobile and IoT Trends Report 2022

    This report summarizes the views of the InfoQ editorial team and of several practitioners from the software industry about emerging trends in a number of areas that we collectively label the mobile and IoT space. This is a rather heterogeneous space comprising devices and gadgets from smartphones to smart watches, from IoT appliances to smart glasses, voice-driven assistants, and so on.

  • How to Harden Applications against IIoT Security Threats

    This article will explore two sides of the IIoT security equation: understanding how and why IIoT systems can become vulnerable to hacking attempts, and which solutions and strategies are available to harden them. It will provide also a set of best practices to address IoT security concerns.

  • Mobile DevSecOps Is the Road to Mobile Security

    In this article, I’ll discuss some of the most common security deficiencies in mobile apps and explain the potential risks to consumers, app developers, and brands, as well how to break the cycle of poor app security, using automated, rapid, continuous, and iterative deployment.

  • Kotlin at Ten. Interview with JetBrains’ Roman Elizarov

    JetBrains unveiled Kotlin in July 2011, aiming to create a modern, general-purpose programming language running on the JVM as well as on the Web. Kotlin has quickly seen huge adoption, especially for Android app development. InfoQ has taken the chance to speak with Kotlin project lead at JetBrains Roman Elizarov to learn more about the origins of the language and its future.

  • Is Developing Games for CTV Really That Hard?

    Developing a game for the CTV market is nowhere as difficult as some believe. While Roku may be the most difficult to start off with, it has potential, and Apple TV, Android and Amazon Fire TV all represent decent platforms for developers to hone their craft. Studios who dive into the field now will find that they may be able to set the standards of this rapidly evolving video gaming horizon.

  • Add Augmented Reality Effects to Android Apps Using the VrFace Library

    In this article, we describe how to create augmented reality applications for Android using the open-source VrFace library. In the process, you will also learn about basic vision and ML techniques, including how to process camera frames using OpenCV and how to detect faces and facial feature points using appropriate models.

  • Site Reliability Engineering for Native Mobile Apps

    In this article, we will describe how we can apply Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) principles to mobile app development. First, we will describe the key SRE tenets and what tools can be used to implement them. Then, we will delve into organization topology, i.e. how an organization can be designed to adopt SRE for mobile app development.
