Safely shipping mobile apps - Mobile engineering at Picnic

SAT 15:15 - 15:45


Picnic is the world’s fastest growing online supermarket that makes grocery shopping simple, fun, and affordable for everyone. Being mobile-only, a defect in our iOS and Android app may immediately mean losing customers. So how do we keep shipping features safely at the pace of a startup while having to deal with slow app store review processes, manual updates by users and the inability to roll back a new app version?

In this talk, I will share how we tackle these challenges with the help of tools like feature toggles, metrics and testing. I will also cover our culture, experiments and plans for the future. You will leave the session with an understanding of how this approach enables us to ship our mobile apps with the pace and confidence of shipping a web application.
