EasyMobileDevelopment

May 18, 2010 @ 7:00pm – Easy mobile development (IPhone, Android, iPad) without native code

Description

So you have a great idea for an IPhone app, you’ve tried learning Objective-C, but it’s just too hard. What about those other new platforms like Palm Pre and Android? Who wants to write the same app three times? Four times if you count Blackberry\! Fear not, there is a much easier way for you to develop on the IPhone. Using a development style called “hybrid mobile applications” you can write apps for IPhone and other platforms using stuff you already know: HTML, CSS and Javascript. In this course, we’ll go over the basics for hybrid development

Building and Deploying 12 Factor Apps in Scala and Java

April 18, 2017

The twelve-factor app is a modern methodology for building software-as-a-service apps:

• Use declarative formats for setup automation, to minimise time and cost for new developers joining the project.

• Have a clean contract with the underlying operating system, offering maximum portability between execution environments.

• Are suitable for deployment on modern cloud platforms, obviating the need for servers and systems administration.

• Minimise divergence between development and production, enabling continuous deployment for maximum agility.

• And can scale up without significant changes to tooling, architecture, or development practices.

We will build a RESTful web service in Java and deploy the app to CloudFoundry. We will go over how to build a cloud manifest, how to keep our database credentials and application configuration outside of our code by using user-provided services and go over what it takes to build a 12 Factor application in the cloud. This presentation will be heavy on code and light on slides!
