  • Rapid Android development with JRuby

    by Andrew Glover

    If you aren’t building a mobile app today, maybe these tidbits of information will convince you otherwise: 70% of the world’s population has a mobile phone; what’s more, over a million Android devices are activated weekly. 1/2 of all local searches are done on a mobile device; moreover, over 90% of mobile Internet access is social media related. Clearly, if you aren’t building mobile apps today, you will be soon. In this session, I’m going to show you Ruboto, a framework that leverages the power of JRuby to enable you to quickly build and deploy Android apps. As you’ll see, with the expressiveness of Ruby and the full stack nature of this Rails-like framework, you can go from idea to device in short-order. You will leave this session with the knowledge of how to rapidly build a GPS enabled mobile app targeting Android using your existing Java and/or Ruby skills. Now it's up to you to build the next Angry Birds with your new skills!

    At 9:30am to 10:30am, Friday 13th January

    In Zambezi, Kalahari Waterpark Resort Convention Center
