Canberra .NET User Group: "HTML5 web and mobile applications" - Dale Anderson

*PLEASE NOTE: Microsoft Canberra has moved. The user group will be held at Microsoft's new address: Level 4, 6 National Circuit, Barton.*


"Building highly scalable HTML5 web and mobile applications with Tribe" - Dale Anderson

It is widely accepted in the industry that messaging patterns like CQRS can facilitate massively scalable applications with loosely coupled components. Tribe takes a different approach to current single page web application frameworks by providing a full composite UI framework with a messaging platform at its core. This enables the rapid development of highly scalable applications built on patterns like CQRS in a simple and intuitive way. The platform also enables seamless, real time distribution of objects on a large scale across multiple devices.

First, we'll briefly discuss some of the concepts behind messaging patterns like CQRS. Then we'll build a simple chat application that targets both browsers and mobile devices (hopefully using a preview of the upcoming nodejs based release), showcasing how Tribe is focused around removing common pain points and repetitive tasks in developing web applications. Finally we'll cover how the concepts discussed earlier can be applied using the platform and have a quick look at the product roadmap.

About the presenter:
Dale Anderson is an exceptionally passionate software engineer. He lives and breathes the stuff every day and loves every moment.

Lucky to have been born in the age when Steve Jobs was busy changing the world, Dale fondly remembers hacking on his dad's Apple II Plus as a youngster, fervently and conscientiously transcribing code from the pages of computing magazines and then excitedly watching the green ASCII characters fly across the screen as the program came to life. Later, the idea of networking computers together fascinated him, driving his parents crazy by tying up the phone line for hours on end as the modem clicked and buzzed away at a blazing 2,400 bits every second. Dale was even nerdy enough to read the entire RFC specifications for the TCP/IP protocols and various other incredibly dry pieces of literature.

Dale has spent most of his 13+ year career focused on the Microsoft technology stack, working with a wide range of government and corporate clients, specialising in solution architecture. He has in depth knowledge of a broad range of Microsoft technologies, covering web, desktop and middleware stacks. Over the last few years, Dale founded a startup, SportingTribe, and in the process, has become an expert in open source web technologies. He has produced a number of open source projects in that domain (http://tribejs.com/ and http://packscript.com/).

    Tribe looked really useful and versatile! It was excellent that you added so much to it during the presentation! I'd definitely use it to make building things for the web 10x times easier. Thanks for the interesting evening.

    69 slides before demo is too much! Interesting idea otherwise, usually you would show some cool thing about your platform and then slides or mixing slides with the demo. Also title of the presentation does not seem to match with the content?
