  • Developing Enterprise Mobile Apps

    by Sohil Shah

    This talk will cover architecting and implementing an Enterprise Mobile App. The development will be done using OpenMobster, an open source platform for mobilizing cloud services. It will involve writing a Sync App. It will cover how to write the Cloud side channels to expose the Enterprise backend. Then on the device side this data will be available for access in offline mode. As the data changes on one device, the Sync Engine will automatically push it to the Cloud and other devices using that piece of data.

    You will also learn how to use the cross platform Java API for performing Push. Push is the mechanism used by the Cloud to notify the device of some change that may have occurred on the Cloud. The Java API abstracts the low-level details of Push associated with iPhone and Android.

  • Ubiquitous App development with PhoneGap

    by Andrew Glover

    You’ve been tasked to build an app for your company that does x,y, and z. You’ve also been informed that it needs to work on iOS and Android. You think “no problem!” -- that’s what HTML 5 is for! But then you find out that the app needs native features like GPS and a camera. What are you to do? PhoneGap is an innovative framework that allows you to build mobile apps in HTML 5 that have access to device features reserved for native apps. Simply put: with PhoneGap, you can build HTML 5 apps that can use device features like geolocation, the accelerometer, and even a camera, for example. In this session, you’ll learn how to build a web-based mobile app using HTML 5 and JavaScript that is able to live inside the PhoneGap container and take advantage of native features, such as GPS. You’ll see that with PhoneGap the same web app can then be deployed onto an iOS device and an Android one. One app. Multiple device platforms. Job done.

  • Mobile Smackdown, Iron Chef Style

    by Jeff Blankenburg

    You're probably seen, or at least heard of, the Iron Chef television show. Competitors are expert chefs, and they are presented with a set of ingredients at the beginning of a challenge. They need to incorporate those ingredients into a delicious meal in a very limited amount of time. This session will be exactly like that, except our competitors will be buiding mobile applications, not squid souffle. They will be given a set of somewhat unrelated ingredients at the beginning of our time, and then given 45 minutes to build an application using those ingredients. There will be three projectors on the wall at the same time, and you'll be able to see the entire process of prototyping an application from scratch. If you are a mobile developer (or aspiring to be one), you do not want to miss this session.

  • Preparing for Release to the App Store

    by Geoffrey Goetz

    This presentation will take on the perspective of the independent developer and what needs to be considered prior to releasing an App onto Apple’s App Store. While the information shared will be useful to larger companies and corporations, the assumed actor will be an individual one person does it all perspective (as larger companies would need to involve communications, marketing and legal representation for many of the steps to a successful launch). The presentation will include such topics as setting up a relationship with Apple, preparing for a web presence, and how to handle user feedback and suggestions. It will also go into device provisioning, pricing, and the use of promo codes when getting people to use your App for the first time.
