Combining sports and technology (Internet, GPS smartphones), runtastic is making sports even more fun. With over 12 million downloads, runtastic's success with its iOS, Android, Windows Phone and BlackBerry applications created many operational and performance challenges. We will share three of our biggest headaches and how adopting a new approach to managing application performance kept us going -- and helped us go even further:

• Why crash reports couldn't help us make our users happy? • How Facebook brought down our applications? • What millions of blind spots in our applications meant to our operations?

Performance problems, and solutions, often vary depending on the browser. Sure, you can fire up a Google Spreadsheet, open a dozen remote PCs, gather as many mobile devices as possible, and transcribe your test results. Or, you can take 2 minutes to create a Browserscope user test and have all the results gathered for you while enlisting the power of the crowd. We'll take a look at the latter.

You have optimized your website with various solutions and best practices. But are you sure your end users experience a real gain in performance? Does every user benefit in the same way if they are connecting from tablets, smartphones, or desktops? How well do user-side processing capacity, browser type and version, and network speed convey your optimizations?

Based on real customer data, we will conduct a brief analysis of the impact of a simple optimization rule, in an attempt to understand who is likely to benefit most from an improvement in web performance: tablet users with an up-to-date operating system? older browsers? slow-performing devices? This talk will address real user monitoring together with active monitoring methodologies to correlate response times with actual users' configurations.
