Rails-Driven Mobile Apps with Sencha Touch and Rails API for much Victory!

If you're like me and would like to create a Mobile App for all devices without coding native Objective C or Java then this demo is going to rock your world. I go through using Sencha Touchon the Front-end with PhoneGap and Rails API for the back-end. 

More specifically, I will cover:
 - The Sencha Touch framework architecture 

- How Sencha will connect and store data from the back-end 

- Using a theme in Sencha to make your app look like a bonafide native iOS app 

- Setting up and using Rails API to breath life (and data) into our app.

It's going to be a blast! See you guys there!

    Hey guys! I have posted all of the code from last night's presentation to my github: https://github.com/dmarges

    The code is in working order and you can pull it down and play with it. I have commented where needed. Thanks for coming out guys!

    Together with Eric Roberts I am starting to explore using a Hexagonal (aka ports and adapters) architecture to address some of the issues with Rails app at scale (i.e. fat controllers or fat models are both bad).

    We have had some early succes with this allowing core domain classes to be central to the application with Rails pushed out to the adapter layer.

    Is there any interest in this?

      Possibly, this is still very much in progress.

    I have noticed that many of the people joining, and attending the meetings are just starting out with Rails.
    Would some introductory level presentations be of interest? And are there any particular areas people might like to hear about?

    Some possible topics to think about:
    * starting a new project
    * common gems to use
    * best practices
    * debugging/troubleshooting
    * how to deploying my project

      I'm pretty fresh to Rails - a debugging/troubleshootin­g session would be fantastic
