HTML5 CodeShow London #8

If you heard that for the next HTML5 CodeShow in London, we will have the pleasure of welcoming Tom Levey and Martin Beeby.... would you believe it?

Well it's true! So please join us on December 18th at 7.00pm, at Innovation Warehouse a co-working space where they bring together entrepreneurs, investors and innovators in London.

Moreover, we will have a showcase from Microsoft about, which will allow developers to scan sites for common coding problems, download virtual machines, and more! The Microsoft experts will be there to demonstrate, train and educate.


Come and discuss with Tom Levey - App Dynamics - on how to « Monitor the end user experience and identify performance bottlenecks, but also measure the real-time revenue impact, by turning on the lights inside your mobile app. »

Understand why « Delivering fast, rich, engaging experiences across an increasing variety of mobile devices, networks, and locations is a complex challenge. All too often performance issues go unidentified due to a lack of visibility into the true end user experience and a simple way to identify the root cause - is it the mobile device, carrier, 3rd-party, back-end infrastructure or application logic that is the problem? »

Once you mastered the above, we shall then move on to « Building Apps? You should bet on the web » by Martin Beeby – Microsoft.

Martin's invaluable knowledge isn't something to be missed, I quote « Building apps today is a complicated business, trying to get your creation in front of as many users possible, whilst delivering a great user experience, is a tall order. It's no wonder that many developers reduce the platforms they support and go native. Using Web Technologies and, where required, JavaScript abstractions into Native code, you can support more devices and reach more users. It's not necessarily easy, but with a pragmatic approach to testing, performance and design you can develop cross platform apps that beg the question: why should you ever bet on anything other than web technologies? »

Feel free to bring your friends and colleagues and share your experiences with our HTML5 community.
You can contact me poke on @KtKellyTran if you have any questions.

Cheers :)

      You know that page still promotes Launch 2013, right? Can we have an up-to-date banner ad, please? :)

    Hi all,

    Had a good time, the talks were interesting and I enjoyed chatting to everyone.

    I had an Autographer wearable camera on, some of you may have seen it. It took a few snaps through the evening and here's a short gif:

    (Also, we're hiring a junior JS dev if you think wearable technology sounds interesting, get in touch :)

    Hello everyone,
    Here is Martin Beeby's presentation:

    Speaker 1: test web site/review code/cost performance over the net. Speaker 2, from Microsoft, amazingly seemed to know it ALL; spoke about the way Microsoft sees things/and, develops their 'latest' stuff. Told a few jokes/not much laughter; as everyone was 'dead serious' on learning which way Microsoft is going, next...? After each speakers speech; we questioned them individually in person. I learned Microsoft Virtual Academy gives FREE lessons online. Host, Kelly Tran, promised to post a link to the slides for anyone who forgot to take notes(me)? During break time, I used Microsoft 'Surface' hardware. Great graphics; saw 3D 'touchscreen' demo - one could move all around the room: up/down/left/right - all drawn/rendered so extremely fast that there was no noticeable time lag at all; simply, 'unforgettable!' On the same machine, we also previewed Internet Explorer 11 running on Windows 8; quite fascinating! Last, but, not least, I came away with a FREE gift T-Shirt. LOL ;-)

      Loved the recap, thanks! Great to know we'll get a link to the slides as the Microsoft ones were golden. @Kelly, any updates on this?

    Amazing talks. Typescript is exactly what I was looking for, and there were a lot of interesting informations about HTML5 technologies which I will be glad to check later.

    I liked both the talks, was my first time and everyone was really friendly and interesting, hope to see you all again next time :)

    Great meeting, I really enjoyed the talks, particularly the one - I definitely want to experiment with PhoneGap and/or Incenium and maybe even Windows 8 app development!

    And now ... the shameless recruitment effort (Kelly said it was ok :P). My name is Veronika and I'm a JavaScript and front end dev at Unboxed Consulting. Unboxed works predominantly with Ruby/Rails, which is fun, and I enjoy working there a lot BUT it would be even more fun if we had more front end devs to bounce ideas off of. So if you're a talented JavaScript/ front end dev and fancy a new challenge, check this out:

    Thanks :)

    Hi All, looking forward to tonight's event. I'd like to meet UX / UI people for two projects I'm working on, one for the media, news marketing and PR industries, the other for a very disruptive retail project that will also utilise wearable tech.

    Feel free to contact me in[masked] or [masked]

    So so sorry I cannot make it. It's a pity, talks sound very good! Any chance to have them online afterwards?

    Is there any chance that you could move it to Tuesday ?

    December 4, 2013

    • Kelly T.

      Hello Marcin,

      Unfortunately I can't move the CodeShow to Tuesday, but be sure that I will post the presentations for missing on MeetUp Group.
