Twitter to Host Meetup at PubNub Headquarters to Demonstrate How to Build and Scale Real-time iOS and Android apps with PubNub SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- January 26, 2016 -- PubNub, the world’s leading Data Stream Network for IoT, mobile and web apps, today announced that it is available for use as part of Twitter Fabric, Twitter’s modular mobile platform that makes it easy for developers to create great apps. Fabric developers can now leverage the power of PubNub’s global Data Stream Network to develop and scale real-time mobile apps without the overhead of building and maintaining back-end infrastructure. PubNub allows developers to easily create collaborative apps, multiplayer games, group chats, location tracking functionality, live data visualizations and more with just a few lines of code.

Benefits to Fabric Developers

With PubNub and Fabric, developers can realize the following benefits:
  • Streamlined Development -- Fabric developers can now combine PubNub’s global Data Stream Network with other third party SDKs to streamline the development of scalable, real-time mobile applications.
  • More Time to Build Apps, Less Time Managing SDKs -- Fabric gives developers single sign-in access to install the PubNub SDK with other leading SDKs in one central place, so developers can focus their time on building apps, not managing SDKs. The Fabric platform guides developers through the setup process within the Fabric Mac app or Android IDE plugins so they never have to leave their existing workflow.
  • Automatic Key Provisioning -- Fabric automatically provisions keys for all of its developers’ SDKs and onboarding their app, eliminating the need to sign up for account after account. This means developers can spend more time coding and less time searching for keys.
“We’re excited to start this next phase of our relationship with Twitter Fabric and bring the power of our global Data Stream Network to Fabric developers,” said Todd Greene, CEO of PubNub. “It’s now easier than ever for Fabric developers to create world-class mobile apps without worrying about a lot of the time-consuming issues often associated with the process, like managing multiple SDK sign-ins and signing up for multiple accounts.” "Real-time access to information has become a required user experience for all mobile apps," said Jonathan Zazove, Product Manager at Twitter. "This is why we are so excited to add the PubNub SDK to the growing Fabric toolset. Using PubNub Data Streams on Fabric allows app developers to publish, subscribe and notify customers with only few lines of code."
