Dropwizard.io

Dropwizard is a Java framework for developing ops-friendly, high-performance, RESTful web services. Dropwizard pulls together stable, mature libraries from the Java ecosystem into a simple, light-weight package that lets you focus on getting things done.

This talk will provide a overview of Dropwizard and live coding demonstrations of using the framework to build services and functionality.

Heath Eldeen is a Senior Architect at Zane Benefits. He has worked with Java and JavaScript on the web for the bulk of his career at several different companies. In his free time he is a beer and coffee snob who enjoys the great outdoors of the American west with his friends and family.

Appery.io

Gone are the days where you can afford to take months to build an enterprise mobile app. In today's fast market, you need to be able to prototype the app in a few days, release the first version in a few weeks, get feedback, fix bugs, release the second version. Repeat. In this session you will learn how to rapidly build a mobile app connected to cloud APIs using Appery.io cloud platform. This is a live coding session where you will be able to test the app on your device, and we will package the app for iOS/Android.

Max Katz heads Developer Relations for Appery.io, a cloud-based mobile app platform. He loves trying out new and cool REST APIs in mobile apps. Max is the author of two books “Practical RichFaces” (Apress 2008, 2011), DZone MVB (Most Valuable Blogger), and is a frequent speaker at developer conferences.
