Ext JS & Sencha Touch MVC Done Right

MVC (Model-View-Controller) is a powerful & well-established architectural pattern for the REST of us, and which will be familiar to many server-side web developers. But the web is evolving to become a medium in which rich HTML5 technologies allow us to create entire MVC applications in client-side JavaScript alone. Sencha is at the forefront of this evolution.

 

In this meetup, you'll see how you can build an entire MVC application, complete with local storage and business logic, all on the client, using the ExtJS and Sencha Touch. And you'll be guided by the Sencha developers themselves to ensure your code remains well-structured, consistent, and follows established conventions.

 

This meetup will start out with a short presentation by Peter Kellner, who is in the process of re-writing the Silicon Valley Code Camp’s web site using ExtJS4's MVC pattern.  A work-in-progress that currently has 45 separate views and 25 data models will be shown and explained.

Yes, this is a real world app built with ExtJS 4 MVC at its heart.

Following that, Ed Spencer from Sencha will present a Pandora-like app that also uses the MVC approach.

 

The Sencha team will address the challenges you might face when implementing Sencha MVC. So bring your own questions and experiences:

Sencha is here to listen and help you.

 

See you on August 23rd!

    I wish it had been deeper in the details, it was too much of an overview for me.

    It was useful to learn that you can create Sencha Touch apps in an MVC paradigm.

    Interesting talk by Ed Spencer, I learned a thing or two about MVC I didn't know before.

    I thought the presentations were a good introduction to the MVC architecture implemented by Sencha. I enjoyed the Q&A session afterwards where we got a chance to ask about the state of affairs at Sencha.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
