#africaconnected #africa #android #connectionfailures
Hey guys. Here some of my thoughts on managing different connection failures:

When a client app sends data to the server and the app doesn't get a response, the app has not idea whether the server:
1. didn't get the request at all
2. or got the request, sent the response, but the response got lost and the app never received it.

If the device resends the request, the server should handle any duplicate requests gracefully.

#CloudPlatform  
Hi. I'm Dale, a Cloud Platform GDE, living and working in Cape Town.

I run the tech side of a start-up that builds tools to help small businesses and entrepreneurs process cash payments.

I love engineering, from industrial design, electronics, embedded firmware, backend systems to front-end UX and UI. I believe small teams, iterating quickly, and focusing on their niche product will always outperform the competition.

I'm excited to learn how others tackle hard technical problems.

 I share my thoughts on dalehumby.com

I'll be presenting with Hiren: Querying 1.2 B rows of OpenCellId data in Big Query, viewing the heatmaps in Google Maps.
Come join us in a google cloud platform demo, have your questions about the google cloud answered, or share your experiences with us. Come chat to us about what google cloud events you want us to arrange in the year ahead too!

This is a repeat of the demo done at the AfricaCom conference.

We will demo and talk through how we've imported all of opencellid.org's data (tens of GB) into google bigquery, and used App Engine and google maps to do heatmaps of the timesliced data, querying massive datasets in seconds, and updating the heatmap.

We will also be giving out offline documentation on google cloud and android, bring 30GB free space if you would like them, more info here:

Venue: 24.com (11 Adderley street, Cape Town)
Snacks will be provided.
