Presentation: Leveraging cloud for cross and multiplatform development

Time: Wednesday 11:00 - 11:50 / Location: Walton South

Miko will explain emerging topics in cross-platform development addressing such challenges as HTML5 frameworks, both commercial and open source, Node.JS and build-your-own cloud backend versus the emerging Mobile-Backend-as-a-Service players. Attendees will come away with a strong and practical view of the available approaches to managing development across platforms, principally focusing on IOS and Android, but also embracing both new and legacy platforms including Windows, Blackberry and even bridging across to PC environments. Topics will span the wide range of vendors and open source solutions and approaches including hybrid, responsive design, native-with-framework, native-on-MBaaS and pure-play cross platform frameworks including Sencha, Appcelerator, Corona and PhoneGap. Full stacks from database (including NoSQL options such as Cassandra, MongoDB and CouchDB), server stacks to client will be analyzed, with a critical eye to vendor viability, code and community maturity, attendees will gain valuable insight into what's working out there and what's not.
