HTML5 with Play Scala, CoffeeScript and Jade

A session at Jfokus 2012

Wednesday 15th February, 2012

10:10am to 11:00am (CET)

This session shows you how to use some of the hottest technologies today to build a webapp, an API and a mobile application to track fitness workouts. Using HTML5 technologies (specifically geo and local storage), I'll show you how you can track the time, distance and music you listened to while exercising. Play with Scala is used for the backend and services, while CoffeeScript and Jade are used for the front-end templating and Ajax communication.

This session will explain limitations encountered with HTML5 and discuss when native apps might work better.
