Passionate guitarist and enthusiastic photographer. Javier used to write blog posts about Titanium in spanish on www.criteriastudio.com. Now he is living in Valencia (Spain), where he prepares some of the best mojitos in the city!
For any mobile developer, Titanium is a great advantage compared to native development. But there is still a high dependency on backend development, integration with servers, remote databases and so on. ACS (Appcelerator Cloud Services) reduces a lot all these extra developments that use to be far away from what is considered mobile development, and simplifying projects related to social networks, databases, geo-location… well, almost everything.
In this 45 minutes class Javier will show how to start coding ACS with Titanium in real projects, introducing some tips and good practices done from his experience to work with users, notifications, geo-location, database objects and so on and keep code clean and safe.
Attendees are encouraged to have a look to the ACS API http://cloud.appcelerator.com/docs/api/v1/acls/create
In this talk, we present an overview of the approaches to implement realtime apps over HTTP and introduce the benefit of WebSockets. Later we introduce Node.ACS and Socket.IO to demonstrate how we built a realtime survey system that works on iOS, Android and HTML5 browsers with Titanium.
There is a demo that could involve the audience if they will have internet connectivity. The android client could be download here: http://bit.ly/ticonf and the HTML5 client here: http://www.etnatraining.it/ticonf-demo
Follow along with Trevor as he presents a guide of how to develop applications using Titanium, without having to hack, break or use modules. Keeping within the confines of the framework and applying good coding and open source libraries to resolve almost all development issues.
Dave started using Titanium in early 2011 and has developed numerous internal applications on the now TideSDK desktop environment to help his fellow team and developers as well as working with various charities to deliver mobile applications to schools and councils.

He spent a good part of the last decade doing academic research on technologies for high-speed network processing and writing compilers, before reinventing himself as a mobile and front-end developer.
Olivier has used Titanium Mobile since version 0.7 and, when needed, enjoys breaking into native code for extending the framework. He's particularly interested in analyzing the performance limits of a cross platform solution like Titanium, so created TiProfiler. He also blogs at http://titaniumninja.com
He’s currently working for Microsoft as a Technical Evangelist, spreading the word of technology all over the place. What a mess!

Jörgen developed parts of the TCAD class with Appcelerator and has ever since trained and developed Titanium Mobile apps.
Jörgen started out with embedded machine code development at the age of 12, and have walked the path of a number of languages, systems and architectures, only to land in the mobile development sector of today. With the app factory at Purple Scout he will certainly be the first one you meet when you want to know more about mobile app development and mobile strategy.
Are you considering Titanium Mobile for your startup, app development strategy or your own app product? This session is for those of you that needs to know why choosing Titanium can be a good idea for your business. Jorgen trains people to make a business out of cross platform mobile development.
“Let me tell you about a friend of mine that had a great mobile app idea, but painfully realized that it would take too long and cost too much to make the app in the native languages and environments provided today.“ Let's introduce the cross-platform alternative and investigate what this means to your business and your mobile app strategy. Jorgen will review some of the reasons why Purple Scout chose Titanium Mobile and how it benefit us today and leave some time for Q&A as this is usually a hot subject!
In this talk, Mobile Development expert Esteban Briones will cover the evolution of mobile development and the emergence of new platform opportunities for developers. This will be a technical overview of mobile cloud offerings and will explain how developers can take advantage of Mobile Backend-as-a-Service technologies to rapidly develop cloud based mobile apps.

This is the best way of getting to know Valencia’s old quarter in a laid back fashion in unison with the local lifestyle and tasting delicious Mediterranean cuisine. Tapas and “ir de tapas” (going out for tapas snacks and drinks) is very much a custom of Spain - the idea of tasting a variety of different tapas washed down with some good wine and enjoying good conversation. The evening involves strolling down various streets and squares and seeing some of the major monuments in Valencia’s old quarter. Visitors will stop at a selection of the most popular bars and restaurants; some are quite traditional while others are quite avant-garde.
The Tapas Tour costs only €42 per person and we encourage you to bring along your wives/girlfriends/boyfriends/partners and share the fun with us. You can purchase tickets to the Tapas Tour separately when making your conference ticket purchase through EventBrite.
For everyone who purchases the ticket for the Tapas Tour, we will be leaving from the hotel 7:30pm sharp from the hotel lobby. Be there or be square!
