Cross-Platform Mobile and Desktop Application Development with Cordova and Electron

Saturday, February 25th, 2017 at 1:30 pm

HTML5 has become a very popular platform for building cross platform applications. The speed and maturity of JavaScript frameworks and run-times has allowed complex applications to be written for mobile devices using a single codebase, but they are sandboxed in the browser. Tools like Cordova allow you to get past the sandbox and interact with the device hardware in ways that the browser on it’s own cannot do. Electron does the same thing for building cross platform desktop applications. In this session we’ll look at both and how you can build a single application code base that can be deployed to both mobile devices and desktops.

Go: Cross-Platform Native Awesomeness

Saturday, October 22nd, 2016 at 11:30 am

Go is a awesome cross-platform, functional language that compiles down to native code with zero run-time dependencies. If that wasn’t cool enough, it’s designed in a way to heavily encourage (and at times, require) good coding practices. In this session we’ll look at Go from the ground up and you’ll learn how to get started with the language as well as go into some details on the types of applications Go is really good for.

Hack the Planet

The best way to learn how to protect yourself is learn the techniques that will be used against you. This session is an intro to hacking using the tools that black-hat hackers use on a regular basis to detect and exploit vulnerabilities and how to protect yourself against them. Learn how horribly unsecured Wi-Fi is and some of the most common web site vulnerabilities.

EFing with Code First

Wednesday, November 16th, 2011 at 6:15 pm

Code First is the newest and coolest feature of Entity Framework and really allows users to approach development in an more BDD and TDD style than previously allowed. In this session I’ll give a quick into to Code First and how you can get started using it

NoSQL with RavenDB

Wednesday, November 17th, 2010 at 6:15 pm

RavenDB is a cool, fast document database solution that makes heavy use of JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) and is very easy to work with. RavenDB documents consist of JSON objects that are easily serializable to C# classes and queries are done through LINQ. In this session, we will look at how to get started with RavenDB, how it compares to other NoSQL solutions and some cases where you may want to use it.

ASP.NET, jQuery & JSON: The Magic Unveiled

Wednesday, July 21st, 2010 at 7:00 pm

Both ASP.NET & jQuery can make building web applications easier and more fun. JSON (JavaScript Object Notation) is a very cool Javascript serialization format that has become very popular due to its lightweight nature and how easy it can be used with jQuery. What you may not know is how easy it is also to use from ASP.NET MVC. In this session, we will do a quick intro to both ASP.NET MVC, jQuery & JSON then take a look at how awesome they are all combined.
