CFML Language, ColdBox, Conferences, Ionic, Javascript, Mobile Development

Day 2 of the newly renamed Ortus Developer Week is here. Yesterday we had 4 great sessions, and today we have 4 more for you to watch. Lots of ColdBox content today, but what I am really looking forward to is Mike Hartington,  a representative from Ionic, discussing V2 and beyond.

Free Online Live Presentations - Ortus Developer Week Starts Today

ColdBox, CommandBox, Conferences, Ionic, Javascript, Lucee, Mobile Development, Online Interactive Learning

After 3 years of ColdBox Developer Week, the name has changed, but the concept is still the same. Ortus Solutions is putting on another Developer Week, with 21 great sessions, all online, free, and live so you can interact, and will be recorded as well in case you cannot make them all. Ortus Solution is involved with so much more than just ColdBox now, so changing the name made sense, as there are sessions from representatives from IBM, Google, Ionic and lots of great community contributions. Today Monday November the 16th, 2015, is the first day, lets see what sessions we have coming up.

Post Conference - Session Review - Getting your hooks into Cordova- Workflows and Build Helpers

Android, cfObjective, Cordova / Phonegap, Dev.Objective, Ionic, Javascript, Mobile Development, Node.js, Unit Testing

May 15th, 2015 was the last day of dev.Objective(), and the last session of the day had some great topics, “Devops: journeyman to infrastructure mastery”, ‘Marketing for Developers’, ‘Level Up your Javascript: Understanding the confusing bits’, ‘Web sockets, yes they can do that too', and my session, ‘Getting your Hooks into Cordova - Workflows and Build Helpers'. With mobile and hybrid development really growing into a track of its own, I decided to submit this topic, as I believe Cordova Hooks are a big part of Cordova mobile develop, they save me hours every week, and they are relatively unknown if you search for blog posts about them. When the session was accepted, I took that as a challenge to up my game and really research hooks, and make my presentation a complete resource.

A quirk of Cross Platform WebSQL in Hybrid Mobile Development for iOS Android and Windows

Android, Cordova / Phonegap, Ionic, Javascript, Mobile Development, Techie Gotchas, WebSQL

When is WebSQL not compatible across devices? This is really a quick question, as if you recall reading in previous blog posts ( if you haven’t read them, I urge you to ) I am using WebSQL for my hydrib mobile app development with Phonegap and Cordova… and although WebSQL is supported on Android and iOS, it is not natively supported on Windows Phones / Devices. That is where the lovely people at MS OpenTech come in, Microsofts Open Source company, which wrote a WebSQL wrapper for SQLite to allow you to work with SQLite like you would WebSQL. FANTASTIC, until you hit those issues… so lets look at a couple of them.

dev.Objective() is over, returning back to normal life.

CFML Language, cfObjective, Conferences, Dev.Objective, Javascript, Mobile Development, Unit Testing

dev.Objective() conference held last week in Bloomington MN, with IntoTheBox the day prior, was a great geek week as I like to put it. Of course a conference is most importantly there to give you information to grow and learn, but networking is a close second, and it was great to catch up with friends, and make some new ones at the same time.I was lucky enough to be picked to present not one, but two sessions this time, which adds a weight to your shoulders, but is great to give back, and be on the other side of things.

Speaking at Dev.Objective() x 2 - Cordova Hooks and Testable JavaScript

cfObjective, Conferences, Cordova / Phonegap, Dev.Objective, Javascript, Lucee, Mobile Development, Unit Testing

Dev.Objective() is the 10th year of cf.Objective() rebranded to describe the 5 track professional developer conference more accurately ( more info here).  Still hosting a large number of ColdFusion topics, and a lot of the normal speakers, the content again is simple amazing. Technology is changing and so is this conference, and I am happy to say, that not one, but two of my sessions have been picked for this years Dev.Objective() this May, 12-15th in Bloomington, Mn. 
As usual, my work fuels my blog, and my ideas for sessions, and this year is no different. Lately I have been focusing on Javascript with my Mobile Development, and I have come a long way, compiling knowledge as I go. I think both of these topics are great combinations of all the solid content out there, all in one place to get someone up and running quickly. I was surprised to get both accepted, more work than I was expecting, but I like a challenge, and work well under the gun, so its going to be fun knocking these out. If you are thinking about what conference to attend, you can’t do much better than this one.
