Subject: Responsive App Development using Titanium
Unfortunately the extensive use of defer throughout your application comes with some new pitfalls. Understanding and circumventing these pitfalls might seem like a huge obstacle when trying to incorporate the defer-mechanic into your application.
In order to better understand what is going on Ronald will show you a live demo of a demo app that has defer built into it from the start. He will explain the structure of the app and how the TaskManager.js file works that he created for this purpose.
Ronald Treur has been working with Titanium for over two years now. Together with Timan Rebel, he created the social wintersports app "Snowciety". Originally coded using Titanium 1.6, the app was completely rewritten using Alloy in 2013.
Using Alloy as a foundation, Ronald wrote a framework on top of it that offers more options and flexibility and at the same time increases the level of abstraction and cohesion. Dubbed "Frost(ium)", this framework is currently closed source and used exclusively by Snowciety. If however, he ever manages to clone himself, he promised to open source it.
