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.
Android has made mobile development easy and accessible to thousands of developers, but what makes the best Android developers stand out? This discussion covers the tips and tricks that professional Android developers use to make featured apps.
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.
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.
