This session is about developing native apps for the forthcoming BlackBerry 10 (BB10) platform using the Cascades UI framework. You'll see how it's possible to create funky animated UI with just a little C++ code but mostly QML.
Paul Johnston shares his learnings on developing apps for the corporate world, and the differences between business and consumer apps.
These simple tips can be applied to any app development, whether for business or consumers. Bring your own tips to share too, as well as an open Q&A on building apps for enterprise.
Last Autumn Pearson released it's first set of content APIs. Since then we've been busy releasing more data and APIs, sponoring events and talking to devs. In this workshop we'll take a walk through some of the things we've seen being built, give some tips to consider and do a live code demo showing how you can easily build a game in about 30 minutes.

This presentation covers the history of computation, from the origin of counting through Babbage, Bletchley Park, Baby, Bell, Backus and the BBC Model B to the modern day, and includes an introduction to the theory of computation.
Bernard Cohen is an Honorary Visiting Professor at the School of Informatics, City University. Prof. Cohen’s interests lie in the gaps between formal computer science and human agency.

Installed native applications can use all the space they want, but in the browser we're much more limited. This talk will explore how to make the best use of the storage technologies available to web apps, comparing the virtues of different packaging and encoding techniques, as well as simple forms of in-browser compression that can yield surprising results. As more apps aim to surf over network turbulance and even work when completely disconnected from the network, local storage becomes ever more important.

Smartphones provide a massive amount of data for application developers. You can get the users contacts, location, photos of their friends and a whole range of other useful information.
This talk will look at how you can use the data to save the user work and sometimes surprise them!
It will dive fairly deeply into data usage on Android, including looking at content providers, the media framework and intents. There will be some code to explain how to use these features, however it should also be suitable for non-developers who want to know what's possible on the platform.
Ok, you are using OAuth. Do understand it or just use a OAuth library? We'll talk about what OAuth is, what it has to offer, what are the key differences between version 1 and 2, and some of it's drawbacks.
In this session we will cover most recent trends in mobile payments industry and how are they changing face of commerce. Online and offline.

The session will be covered the developments within the Extreme Citizen Science group at UCL.
We will introduce the mobile activities that we are developing, following the successful Citizen Cyberscience Summit in February. The talk will cover the deployment of WideNoise - a noise monitoring app, the development of locational game in London Zoo and the testing of a prototype of illigal poaching monitoring app that will be use by non-literate hunter-gatherer community in the Congo-basin.
We will discuss future extension of the apps to include sensors in the environment and integration with SMS.

Session content will be chosen by attendees; available topics include:
- How to operate a World War II Enigma machine
Live demo of our app, also of a completely compatible paper model using Pringles tubes!
- Can mobile apps effectively raise money for charities
Our experience of the returns from various revenue sources
- How bad is Android fragmentation and how best to deal with it
Analysis of device form factors seen on Google Play, and what that tells us about an optimal testing strategy
- What mechanical cryptography can teach us about today's security software
The theoretical key length of Enigma is not so different to modern ciphers, yet it was broken without computers, what should we learn?
You have an app in the market, what are some options and tips to actually monetise it, some numbers and tips I have found useful in the last few years.
James Parton wrote it up when this talk was first delivered at OpenMIC.
Kieran is co-founder of Intohand, and a techy involved in mobile since the dark days of Java Mobile. He now delivers apps for a wide range of clients and devices.
Chris will talk about the interfaces featured on the mbed Microcontroller and the online libraries that support them. He will provide an informative walkthrough of using the mbed platform to prototype MCU-based designs, from interfacing a simple sensor, to building 3G ‘Internet of Things’ applications. Attendees will receive an informative summary of MCU-based development to get kick-started with their cloud-connected embedded designs.
Exclusive Technology Preview
At OTA we will be previewing libraries for interfacing the mbed Microcontroller to the Vodafone K3770 USB 3G Dongle, and we are looking for beta testers before official public release. To find out more, and register your interest visit http://mbed.org/vodafone
Come Hack With Us
We'll be bringing along a bunch of mbeds, sensors, servos and stuff to develop your own project with. We'll have a number of hackstations setup for the entire event, so drop by to get developing! #mbedatOTA12
Throughout the show and the talks, we'll have our SMS printer setup so you can ask questions and give feedback. SMS: 07554 351934
What Young Rewired State is, what it's about, why it happens, how it happens, why you should get involved (if you're not already), how it works, and the festival of code.

CTRL is an interactive music installation that offers visitors detailed control over a piece of music, allowing them to make endless unique remixes without any need for musical knowledge. By touching and tilting two simple handheld devices, remixers are able to add effects, manipulate the mix, play solos and much more.
The installation is programmed in graphical dataflow language Pure Data, using Arduino for detailed control of DMX lights. Visitors will have a chance to experience fresh ways of interacting with music, as well as a peek inside the technology behind it.
The attendees of this session will explore how ePatients are harnessing the power of mobile technologies and services to take control of their medical/health-care. Furthermore, this session will highlight the apparent asymmetries of technology usage emerging in "modern" Western Medicine.
Last week it was announced that the Open Data Institute would work to incubate small businesses that seek to exploit the potential of Open Data. Hadley Beeman of the UK Technology Strategy Board will present this unique approach to encouraging entrepreneurial development around open data.
Now we're using mobile handsets for things like payments and banking authentication as well as calling, messaging and email, they are becoming extensions of our identities on and offline. New kinds of social applications are possible, that are unique to a mobile-first world. What are the advantages, and what are the pitfalls, of this kind of approach?
Over the last decade, the Web has opened up all sorts of obscure scientific research to public participation. Mobile devices are extending the range of citizen science even further, literally putting a small laboratory into everyone's hands. That's great for citizens, but what exactly does it mean for science? Is this trend the beginning of a revolution or just a massive PR stunt? What exactly is Open Science, and what role does citizen science have to play in it? Trying to answer these questions, with concrete examples, is what this talk is about.
Watch our fearless hackers demo their creations in 90 seconds.
