On this episode of Eat Sleep Code, guests Simon MacDonald and Sam Basu discuss best practices when using push notifications in your application. Simon talks about his involvement with Apache Cordova and his push notification plugin for PhoneGap. We chat about push notifications across platforms including in the browser. Push notification testing is covered and much more.
