Sencha Touch BYOL Workshop

 

Bay Area Mobile, Sencha and PayPal are teaming up to offer a 3 hour Intro to Sencha Touch – Bring Your Own Laptop meetup.  David Marsland from Sencha Training and James Pearce head of Developer Relations will lead and Sidney Maestre from PayPal will show how to integrate PayPal payments into a Sencha Touch application.  The event will take place at PayPal in San Jose.  

BAM! will collect a $10 registration fee to cover the cost of food and drinks for this special event.

Intro to Sencha Touch BYOL

During this three hour bring-your-own-laptop session you will learn how to create x-device compatible applications using Sencha Touch, the first HTML5 mobile JavaScript framework that allows you to develop mobile web apps that look and feel native on iPhone and Android touchscreen devices.

PayPal Android Developer Challenge

Sencha Touch apps can be packaged for the Android Marketplace using phoneGap and are eligible for the PayPal Android Developer Challenge.

Duration: 3 Hours

    The presentations by David Marsland and James Pearce of Sencha, as well as Sid Maestre from PayPal were informative and entertaining. The Workshop led by David was an excellent introduction to building applications on the Sencha Touch platform.

    It was a good opportunity to learn about "rapid" mobile app development. Looking forward to start using this framework soon

    Could have been better. Too much focus on talking about Aptana features. The presentation moved very slowly. Changing the path to a CSS file took nearly 5 minutes.

    Still glad I went--it opened my eyes to the awesomeness that is Sencha Touch :)

    Excellent. Everything I expected to learn, especially the phoneGap solution in conjunction with Sencha. This really solves our cross platform / native app challenge. Thanks!

    Great facilities, topics, and presenters. The Sencha Touch workshop could be streamlined and organized a bit better for doing a walk-through with such a large audience.

    Great presentations. If we had 3x the time we might have been able to do the workshops. It would be nice is all the picky file name changes and other gotchas where listed someplace, they are hard to remember a week later.

    Excellent presentations! Thank you Sid!

    Sid, where would we be able to get your paypal code?

    March 31, 2011

  • Dan D.

    it would be great if we could get all the versions of various software used for the demos.

    Big crowd! Everyone looks really engaged and appear to be learning about Sencha Touch in this hands on session tonight.

    Namrata, let me know if you still have +1 left with you.

    March 31, 2011

  • Namrata A.

    I guess there's no automated way for folks on waitlist to get to use the last minute +1 openings, so I am fine with whoever wants to come for my +1, in this case Olchi - I would defer to Sid incase he wants it any other way.

    March 31, 2011

  • laxmikant s.

    Is there any one not coming or not using +1, please let me know. I would like to bring one with me.

    March 31, 2011

  • Sid M.

    Yes there is wireless
    No, you don't have to use Aptana

    March 31, 2011

  • Eugene K.

    Do we need Aptana Studio 2, or can we just use our own text editor?

    March 31, 2011

  • Namrata A.

    My +1 wouldn't be able to make it today, in case someone from the waitlist wants to attend. Also, is there a way to cancel your +1's registration?

    March 31, 2011

  • Namrata A.

    Is there wireless available at the venue?

    March 31, 2011

  • Sid M.

    Hi John,

    Just downloaded it myself on my Mac.

    March 31, 2011

  • Vijay

    I am able to download it... works fine

    March 31, 2011

  • Sid M.

    Yep John, they moved the assets around. We'll address a few tweaks during the session tonight.
