Bring an open mind and a laptop, we will be building applications from scratch; feel free to follow along. Sencha provides frameworks, tools, and services for building professional applications with HTML5.

    Very late to this one!

    We've gone through a major migration from flash/flex for our live sports product range. We've ended up with a huge stack with Google Closure playing a key role as the javascript framework. Our tech team know a lot more about it than I do but the transition has been smooth for the front end devs and they are excited about it. We still do plenty of flex work around live sports so it's all happily co-existing. If anyone is interested in talking to some of our guys about the approach I can arrange a session in London office. And yes, we are lookign for mroe talent![masked] - sorry for plugging that!

    Very interesting; Sencha Touch seems to be a serious option if cross-platform is vital. I would be interested in training course on this.

    It was very nice, useful, a lot of information my suggestion ask the lecturer to give a link if somebody interested to have more details. But at the end I found it very interested

    Could have done with more information about the timings - was not expecting the session to go on so late. Good lecture though.

    A well thought out presentation. There was a good balance between promoting the benefits of Sencha from a commercial standpoint and addressing the development questions. Plus there was Free Beer ;) Even if you're not yet ready to move away from Flex, Sencha is definitely one to keep an eye on.

    I am already moving to asp mvc + jquery as it has excellent oop principles, does anyone know how Sencha compares?
