Upcoming Conferences & Presentations

I’ll be speaking at a few conferences in the next few months on PhoneGap and web standards-based development.  Here are just a few, with some more pending.  Be sure to come check one out (or all of them)!


RIACON

www.riacon.com
WHERE: Washington, DC
WHEN: Aug 6-7, 2012

Where architects and developers of all levels come to gather, share and learn about creating the next generation of web based applications.  RIAcon’s goal is to help you network with fellow industry professionals and expose you to the best content.

I’ll be speaking on the following topics at RIACON:

  • Introduction to PhoneGap
    Interested in developing applications for mobile devices, on multiple platforms? Interested in leveraging your existing web development skills to build natively installed applications? Just looking to expand your skill set? Come join Adobe Technical Evangelist, Andrew Trice, to learn about cross platform mobile development and PhoneGap. In this session, you will get an introduction to PhoneGap (Apache Cordova), be able to see example PhoneGap applications, and walk through the process of building your first PhoneGap application.

  • PhoneGap Native Plugins
    PhoneGap enables developers to build natively installed applications using traditional web-based development tools (HTML & JavaScript), but what if you want to make your application do more? In this session, learn how to write native plugins for PhoneGap that enable you to extend the API to tap into native device functionality.

  • Data Visualization with Web Standards
    Do you have the requirement to create rich visual data dashboard applications, but also have the requirement to use web-standard technologies, and don’t know what to do next? Well, you’re in luck! Come to this session to learn about data visualization strategies and frameworks powered entirely with HTML and JavaScript.


360|iDev

360idev.com/
WHERE: Denver, CO
WHEN: Sept 18-21, 2012

360|iDev is the first and still the best iPhone developer conference in the world. We’re not a publishing company pushing books, or a media company selling subscriptions. We’re a conference company, focused on community. Our goal is to bring the best and brightest in the developer community together for 3 days of incredible sessions, awesome parties, good times, and learning. If you don’t leave Wednesday night, with more ideas than you know what to do with, we’re not doing our jobs!

I’ll be speaking on the following topics at 360|iDev:

  • Kick A$$ iOS Apps with PhoneGap
    Apps don’t have to be written in native Objective-C to be awesome.   Get ready for a crash course in PhoneGap, a tool that enables you to build natively installed iOS apps using 100% HTML & JavaScript, complete with access to local APIs.  We’ll cover everything from “what is phonegap” to strategies for building highly performant & interactive applications.

  • Enterprise iOS Apps with PhoneGap
    Did you know that you can easily build awesome natively installed iOS apps using web technologies with PhoneGap? In this session, we’ll cover strategies for enterprise application development – everything from data visualization, MVC & distributed development, UI frameworks, performance considerations, and dev/debug workflows in PhoneGap apps built entirely with HTML, CSS & JavaScript.


Dreamforce

www.salesforce.com/dreamforce/DF12/
WHERE: San Francisco, CA
WHEN: Sept 18-21, 2012
Dreamforce is the annual conference by Salesforce.com. In their own words:

Every year Dreamforce features stories and presentations from some of the brightest minds in technology, business and beyond. This year’s Dreamforce promises to be even more informative and dynamic, with our most exciting keynote speaker lineup yet. The cloud computing event of the year is also the Social Enterprise event of the year. This is where you’ll learn everything you need to know—from the industry leaders who are paving the way—about how the Social Enterprise revolution is changing the way we do business.

I’ll be speaking on the following topics at Dreamforce:

  • Data Visualization with Web Standards
    Do you have the requirement to create rich visual data-centric applications, but also have the requirement to use web-standard technologies, and don’t know what to do next? Well, you’re in luck! Come to this session to learn about data visualization strategies and frameworks powered entirely with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

  • Native-like Apps with PhoneGap
    Native applications built using web technologies can suffer from the “uncanny valley” effect – where they don’t feel quite right as a native application. In this session we’ll focus on strategies to make your apps feel like native apps, including considerations for a native-feeling UI, platform consistency, and user experience.

I hope to see you at one of these events!

    Will there be screencasts available for your RIACON and 360|iDev talks? I’d really like to hear your PhoneGap native plugin talk as well as both in Denver.

      I know that sessions are typically recorded for 360 conferences, I do not know if RIACON will be recorded.
