Lessons learned from building a successful social media app – a series

I gave a WebCast on this topic for SAP last week. You can see the slides here on Slideshare.

Afterwards I thought it would be wise, to formulate some of my thoughts in my blog. Here we go…

Disclaimer: Most of my observations come from building an application (XING by Zühlke) for the Windows Phone platform. Nevertheless I think many of them can be transformed 1:1 for other mobile platforms like iOS or Android.

I divided the lessons learned into several sub-topics and will try to argue from an architect’s and/or product owner’s point of view.

If you need more technical developer-centric information, the blog of my colleague Stephan Gerbling might be good for you…
