PDX iOS: What’s in a mobile database – Samuel Giddins w/ Realm
It seems like every year, we see a new database launch. But most of them are designed to work in server environments, not solve the problems that mobile developers face. A database that’s truly designed to work on phones, tablets, and watches is going to look different from SQLite — it will be built on a universal, cross-platform, memory-mapped, thread-safe data representation of data, via a simple and object-oriented API. The focus will be to let developers write apps faster, focus on crafting better experiences, and handle more data locally.
