Invitation to participate W3C Network-Friendly App and WebApp Best Practices Community Group


this should be of interest of everyone involved in the Mobile Web App
Best Practices work!

The group will have it's first teleconference tomorrow.

 From the group description:


    In this group, we are looking for contributions to help us
    reach the widest possible consensus in a critical area facing
    the mobile industry.

    Smartphones and smartphone applications have established
    themselves as a major success story in the industry over the
    past few years. As the number of smartphones and smartphone
    applications has increased the industry has learnt much on how
    to create efficient applications for smartphones.

    The GSMA has created a [24]set of guidelines for application
    developers that will enable improvements across a number of
    areas including application connectivity, power consumption,
    network reliability and security.


    By following these guidelines
      * Developers will be better equipped to create
        fit-for-purpose apps
      * Users will experience more responsive and reliable apps and
        improved battery life
      * Mobile operators will see a reduced strain on their

    GSMA intends to issue an update of the above document by end of
    2012. As such, it has compiled a list of items for inclusion in
    the update after consulting GSMA’s members; they include
    network operators and device manufactures.

    To ensure the new update will have the widest possible support
    by all communities across the industry, we have created a
    Community Group called ‘network friendly Developer guidelines’
    under auspices of W3C.

    The new CG is formed with a view to engage other developers or
    interested parties and reach a consensus as what needs to be
    added beyond what has already been proposed by GSMA. The
    proposed items for inclusion are embedded in this document.

    As the update will be released by end of 2012, all changes
    should be agreed in time before the actual work of writing and
    editing the document starts in earnest and no later than 15th
    of June 2012. That means the outcome of activities in the CG
    would be a list of items for inclusion beyond what has already
    been proposed by GSMA. The outcome would be considered by GSMA
    for inclusion when updating the document.
