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!
