                            [Abstract] => It has always been challenging to chase Android fashion. For many years, the “style-makers” were pushing designs that would look more appropriate on an iPhone, or that were beautiful and unique masterpieces, yet impossible to actually implement. This was compounded by the fact that the formal guidelines were unclear, and incomplete. This made the role of an Android Interface developer very challenging. In recent years, I have participated in many high-profile “UI refresh” projects. I have learned a lot from these projects, and will share a few key lessons I have learned from this practical experience. I will discuss:
– how to build beautiful interfaces that are universally styled, responsive and beautiful
– strategies to work with designers and stake-holders to enhance workflow
– which key Android framework components that should be used to build flexible UI code
– the important concepts of the new ‘Material Design Guidelines
Come to this presentation to learn the techniques you will need to be ready for the next Android fashion fad.

Smartphones have become an integral part of life in the developed world, and worldwide penetration is set to surpass 50% this decade.  However, the next billion will not use their phones like we do – they will use them even more.
Where will we see leapfrog technology that surpasses what we are using today?
Who are the next billion smartphone users, and where do they live?
What role will Google and Android play compared to new upstarts and forks from Android?
How will the next billion pay to acquire smartphones that cost more than a month’s full income?
Join us for a conversation on these topics and more.

                            [Abstract] => Before setting up teams to build iOS, Android, Windows Mobile, or even Cordova apps, consider that your responsive website can simply be updated for a native application type of user experience.

The web has come a long way with with features such as WebGL, Bluetooth Low Energy, WebAudio, real-time video conferencing, and peer to peer connections.

Now we have the ServiceWorker API which is a new set of browser features that provide event-driven scripts that can run independently of web pages. These APIs give us the ability to control network request enabling us to build web applications "offline first" in anticipation of our devices losing connectivity.  We also gain abilities for the mobile operating systems to handle server push notifications, background sync, and generally treat web apps as though they are independent native applications.

                            [Abstract] => The Internet of Things is the next big technology wave where all kinds of devices being connected to the internet. A staggering 99% of things in the physical world remain unconnected and Cisco estimates that 50 billion devices and objects will be connected by 2020. Objects in the IoT will not only be devices with sensory capabilities, but also provide actuation capabilities (e.g., bulbs or locks controlled over the Internet). With billions of connected smart devices and machines worldwide, the Internet of Things (IoT) provides vast amounts of actionable data in near real time and provides context-specific intelligence.
This talk covers how IoT enables us to sense and control the physical world from virtually anywhere in the world, Smart Cities and Smart Homes, current and future state of IoT, technologies enabling IoT/IoE/M2M and the security/privacy challenges with IoT.

                            [Abstract] => Review the stack: High level summary of the tools and how they work

Benefits of Appery.io for Beta Testing/Prototyping
 - compiles to Android/IOS/Windows Phone/HTML5 app using Cordova libraries for native functionality
 - can download source code and customize if you want
 - easy to install, test and deploy
 - easy to set up push notifications
 - integrates with other services easily (i.e. Parse, out-of-the-box Salesforce.com plugins)
 - easy to test
 - easy to use their MongoDB services 
 - amazing support (I've found more source code examples on their support site to accomplish something than I find on StackOverflow)

Benefits of DreamFactory for RestAPI creation
 - Easy to set up authentication
 - Easy to set up connectivity to backend database
 - Easy to connect directly to tables
 - Easy to connect to stored procedures

Issues/Challenges
 - Security concerns to be aware of
 - Out of the box templates aren't beautiful (Based on JQuery Mobile)
 - performance issues on some of their services (i.e. limitations on length of time that jobs can run)
 - subscription fee
 - on occasion, code I've written magically disappears

Demo: Creating an App in 10 Mins or less
 - Select a theme
 - create a service
 - create a page
 - map the service
 - set up push notifications 
 - compile and demo!

                            [Abstract] => GIS Analysis in the Browser (GIS without servers)

Even simple GIS work like a bounding box or radius search use a server to find results . . . but times are changing. Javascript libraries like Turf.js work on the client and make doing simple things a snap. More and more it means doing complicated things right in the browser (on mobile browsers too of course) avoiding all the overhead of setting up traditional GIS servers/databases.

Using a simple HTML site as a demo, you will see how to enable desirable features and observe tips for easy debugging. Although most of the session will showcase development with the free download of Visual Studio 2015 Community edition, resources & tooling will be covered for those not running a Windows operating system.

                            [Abstract] => One of the most important ways to avoid the collapse of an early-stage company is to rapidly identify which product features and strategies have failed so that you can correct your course with a minimal waste of resources. Colin Turner discusses his experiences failing many times in his startup, Wiblits, in order to remain on the road to future success.

                            [Abstract] => The Ionic Framework is taking the mobile development world by storm.  Come see why over 320,000 applications where created in 2014 with the Ionic Framework.

Use technologies you already know and love such as Html 5, AngularJS, and CSS 3.  The Ionic Framework will make your application look, feel and perform like a native application.   You can develop applications faster than ever before with the Ionic Framework's built-in functionality and the tools.  

You will walk away from this session ready to deliver your first Ionic based application and learn to love mobile development again.

With ResearchKit, you can easily build an app for medical research with important features such as verifying user consent, collecting qualitative and quantitative information with surveys, and collecting data from sensors. In this session, we'll introduce ResearchKit and walk you through the construction of a sample app. Note: the sample project will be available for download, but following along with the live coding requires the latest version of Xcode.

                            [Abstract] => Twitter Bootstrap is a CSS framework for creating mobile-first, responsive websites.  The collection of CSS classes leverage media queries under the hood to show, hide, resize, and reposition the elements in your page for mobile, tablet, and desktop users, allowing you to focus more on the content of your site and less on position and layout.  Bootstrap won't solve all your layout concerns, but you can easily drop into regular CSS to round out your site.  This code-focused demo will walk us through many common Bootstrap tools and techniques, frequently resizing the browser to simulate mobile users' experience with our content.  Level up your CSS abilities with Bootstrap.
