Subject: Node.js

Workshop Node.js & Co.

There's hardly a programming language in the last 15 years with a career comparing to JavaScript's one: What started off as a simple and exotic scripting language for client-side interaction within the browser in 1995 is driving nearly all big, modern and web 3.0-ish web applications such as Facebook, Twitter and Co. And that's just the beginning: Meanwhile, you can find JavaScript on every desktop and every mobile device, becoming more and more powerful and wide-spread ... so why don't you use JavaScript on the server-side as well to create your web applications? Golo Roden talks about Node.js, the (probably) next big thing in high-performance, scalable and real-time web application development.

Subject: Firefox OS

Firefox OS: The web is the phone

For long the browser wars had fallen into oblivion, but they have never been dead and gone. In fact, they resurrected a few years ago as the mobile wars: Each platform has its own exclusive and proprietary set of languages, frameworks and tools. You want to develop a mobile app? No problem: Just rewrite from scratch for each single platform. The upcoming 'Firefox OS' is the white flag: A light-weight mobile operating system completely based on the native web technologies we have been using for years. Write an app? Do it in HTML5! Enhance the phone? Do it in HTML5! Provide services? Do it in HTML5! Golo Roden introduces you to Firefox OS, talks about its ideas, concepts and current state of implementation. If you are a web developer and interested in mobile, call, uhm ... join!

Subject: Sencha Touch 2

Talk: Creating Custom Components and Views in Sencha Touch 2

Most of the UI for applications build with Sencha Touch 2 can be constructed using our out-of-the-box components. In some cases however, designers come up with creative new UI and UX concepts that require us to build custom components or views. In this session we'll take a look at how new concepts in Sencha Touch 2 make this easier then ever. We will also go through the steps of converting a custom component or view from ST1 to ST2. At the end of this session, you will be more confident the next time you are asked to implement a highly custom piece of UI.

Subject: Google Web Toolkit & Phonegap

Talk: Building Mobile Apps with GWT & Phonegap

Building mobile apps and webpages with mgwt & gwt-phonegap is a great way to build cross platform mobile apps in Java. Especially porting your existing GWT apps becomes incredibly easy.
With Phonegap you can build cross platform apps based on web standards. This can be done with Javascript. GWT on the other hand is an excellent tool for building fast Javascript apps in Java, but it is missing some key parts for building great mobile apps with it. The two open source projects mgwt and gwt-phonegap close this gap: mgwt provides mobile widgets, that look like native widgets for different platforms - gwt-phonegap enables GWT apps to use Phonegap. 
Putting these frameworks to work creates performant mobile apps that feel like native apps while being platform independent.

Subject: Backbone.js

Talk: Data Driven Development with Backbone.js

Welcome to the Web Development World of 2012: The logic moves towards the client, nearly every major web plattform has a clientside reachable api. That´s great for companies, less logic on the serverside means less power needed for the servers in the back. But this leads to unknown problems for the frontend javascript developers, who mostly didn´t work with large datasets, sorting algorythms or data aggregation. So the question is: How to tackle all these problems in a way that satisfies the customer's needs and stays manageable for the javascript developers behind the application?

Our favourite tool jQuery isn´t helpful on that way. Backbone JS to the rescue! Backbone is a small open source and community driven framework for building structured client side web applications. Backbone has some nice data structuring capabilities, like wrapping your data in models with evented getter and setter functions. Or storing a bunch of models in a collection, which then can be sorted and manipulated in an object oriented manner. The talk will cover the basics of Backbone JS in conjunction with jQuery, how you can use it, how you set up a basic project and then will go deeper when aggregating data from different online services, manipulating and displaying them gracefully. The last part of the talk will be around the community, available plugins, 'on top' libraries like Backbone Marionette and applications that have already been build with Backbone, outlining what the best use cases for a backbone driven app are.

Subject: JavaScript & HTML5 canvas, WebGL and OpenGL

Talk: Cross-Platform and Cross-Browser Games with JavaScript and HTML5 canvas, WebGL and OpenGL

The buzzword HTML5 includes several raising technologies for usage inside the Browser. They allow us to do several things cross-browser, like building 2D web games. But due to their asynchronous implementations across different platforms, it is not that easy to create a high performance web application.

lycheeJS is a game library that offers such solutions that the developer doesn't has to worry about how to implement different features cross-platform. It's underlying architecture allows being used in every JavaScript runtime environment, independent of the rendering methods used and of platform specific implementations.

To take the lycheeJS game stack even further, the lycheeJS-ADK (App Development Kit) was introduced, using a custom V8 with OpenGL bindings and data types for interactions. It allows native builds, such as cross-compiled builds to Android, Linux, Windows, Mac OSX and other platforms.

The talk will primarily handles the evolution of the game engine stack, how it evolved and what issues came up with different parts of the APIs. There will also be several examples showing how to use the cross-platform GLUT (freeglut) bindings to implement high level Polyfills like setInterval or setTimeout that are available in the v8 native builds and platform/v8gl inside the lycheeJS game stack.

Subject: JavaScript

Talk: Writing High Performance JavaScript Code

The talk will focus on showing you how to write high performance JavaScript code. To make you a JavaScript ninja, you will have to learn a couple of things. This talk will handle a variety of important topics that are necessary to write high performant JavaScript applications and will explain how JITs are optimizing your code, how you can write clean code and how to avoid garbage. You will learn how memory and callstack allocation is done behind the scenes.
To take this further, the talk will use typical examples and show you how to apply this knowledge and how to optimize an already existing codebase.

Subject: JavaScript

Talk: Best approaches for making large-scale Web apps

Web technologies and JavaScript in particular have become extremely powerful and very easy to start playing with lately. They evolve rapidly, and gain more popularity every day. But there are also some drawbacks: lack of OOP and modularity in the language, messy pile of libraries, frameworks, tools and techniques, shortage of standard workflows — all the comfort we have become really accustomed to in the enterprise development world. During my talk I will give you an overview of the best practices to be productive when creating production-scale, reliable and long-living Web apps. They include the right ways of writing an Object-oriented JavaScript, refactoring your code and keeping it clean, checking and testing the code, choosing the right libraries and frameworks, quick prototyping with instant response. You will see many libraries and technologies in action, from jQuery and Node.js to SASS, CoffeeScript and Mocha.

Subject: Titanium Mobile

Talk: Crossplatform development with Titanium Mobile

The Tool "Titanium Mobile" by the Californian company appcelerator has made huge progress in the USA and has started gaining ground in Europe. In this session Marcus will explain how to create native applications for different mobile platforms with Titanium mobile. By using JavaScript as the development language the steep training curve that classic app development generates is void. In doing so HTML5 is not used but the UI components of the platform. In the end an application has been created that runs under Android as well as iOS  as native app´s for the stores and mobile Web as well. In short: attend to the session, see what can be done with one source for several plattforms in native speed and save time & money in your projects with that approach.
