Mobile Lightening Talks - 5 min each

Lightening Talks are a way for the community to show off what they've been building and share their triumphs and frustrations.  Each speaker gets 5 minutes.  When we finish, you'll have time to get face time with the speakers and ask more in depth questions.


6:30 - 6:45pm- Arrival

6:45pm - Welcome

6:50 - 7:45 - Lightening Talks

7:45 - 8:30pm - Networking and 1 on 1 QA with speakers

We've got some great speakers, so many volunteered, that I can't fit everyone in this month.  If you didn't get a chance to demo, don't worry we'll get you in next round.  Here is our list of speakers and topics.

Kenji Kato

Why mobile apps are more than glorified HTML5 web pages.

Many believe that just because it's easy to create an HTML5 web page that they can build a mobile app. But there are distinct differences between a mobile app, and a web page. In a quick rundown I will outline the differences, and why you need to think beyond the page for your mobile app.

MobileESP: Detect Mobile Web Site Visitors

MobileESP is a free, open source code library so that web site publishers can detect visitors using mobile devices. MobileESP is perfect for sites wishing to offer optimized content for mobile devices in general (modern touchscreen, non-touch, etc.), by platform (Android, iOS, etc.), or by device category (phone, tablet, game console), among other features. MobileESP is fast and written for easy customization.

    Actually software DOES have mass! I picked a hard disk at random - The Toshiba MK8052GSX - hard drive - 80 GB - SATA-300 weights 3.5 ounces, according to their official spec. That means that every bit weighs[masked] ounces. Yes, on or off! Assuming I did the math right.

    This may sound like a joke but if you consider application in aviation (Airplanes, Fighter Jets, Drones) or Naval Operations, or Space Operations, when systems are typically doubled up for fault tolerance, then, to pardon the pun, every bit literally counts!

    As what people are developing is software, why do we care about making it "lighter?" Software has no inherent mass. ;-)
