Rocket Data packs LinkedIn’s bags

If Elton John's Rocket Man said "it's gonna be a long, long time," it appears LinkedIn didn't want to listen.

The professional social network has created an iOS caching service called Rocket Data, promising a more efficient system for managing app data.

All this science

The company built Rocket Data after finding Apple's existing Core Data service was inadequate for the volume of information LinkedIn needs to move.

However the platform's biggest step was making Rocket Data available as an open-source framework, to boost iOS development on the whole.

It's just my job

LinkedIn said its new caching system is virtually plug-and-play for developers, with very little additional code is required.

Once all is said and done, users will have an app that doesn't take extra time to pull information, preloading multiple screens ready to be viewed.

Click through to LinkedIn's blog to read more about Rocket Data and the decision to make it open source for other developers.
