Utah JUG: Client/Server Apps with Play Framework, HTML5 and Java

Tonight (Feburary 21, 2013) I will be presenting at the Utah JUG about Client/Server Apps with Play Framework, HTML5 and Java. Here is the session description:

The web application landscape is rapidly shifting back to a Client/Server architecture. This time around, the Client is JavaScript, HTML, and CSS in the browser. The tools and deployment techniques for these types of applications are abundant and fragmented.

This session will teach you how to pull together jQuery, LESS, Twitter, Bootstrap, and some CoffeeScript to build the Client. The Server could be anything that talks HTTP, but this session will use the Play Framework.

Hope to see you there!

DevNexus 2013: Architecting Event-Driven Web, Mobile, and RESTful Apps & Introduction to Play Framework

At DevNexus 2013 I will be giving two talks:

Architecting Event-Driven Web, Mobile, and RESTful Apps

Non-blocking, asynchronous, and reactive are all the rage today. This session will explore why the patterns are important in modern apps and how to apply them to event-driven web, mobile, and RESTful apps. To illustrate the concepts, Java, Scala, Akka, and Play Framework will be used as examples.

Introduction to Play Framework

The Play Framework is a lightweight, stateless web framework for Java and Scala applications. With Play you can build traditional page-based web apps or modern web apps using REST, JavaScript, and HTML5. This session will give you an introduction to building web applications with the Play Framework.

Hope to see you there!

DeveloperWeek 2013: Modern Web Apps With Scala and Play

Tomorrow (February 5, 2013) I will be presenting about Modern Web Apps With Scala and Play at DeveloperWeek in San Francisco. Here is the session description:

The web application architecture is rapidly evolving to accommodate mobile, more interactive experiences, integrated real-time, and service composition. This session will teach you how to build modern web applications using Play Framework and Scala. You will learn the end-to-end architecture including: non-blocking service composition, RESTful JSON endpoints, single page UIs, and real-time push.

Hope to see you there!

CodeMash 2013: Client/Server Apps with HTML5, Play, CoffeeScript

Today I’ll be presenting at CodeMash 2013 about Client/Server Apps with HTML5, Play, CoffeeScript, and More. Here is the session description:

The web application landscape is rapidly shifting back to a Client/Server architecture. This time around the Client is JavaScript, HTML, and CSS in the browser. The tools and deployment techniques for these types of applications are abundant and fragmented. This session will teach you how to pull together jQuery, LESS, Twitter Bootstrap, and some CoffeeScript to build the Client. The Server could be anything that talks HTTP but this session will use the Play Framework. You will also learn how to deploy Client/Server web apps on the cloud using a Content Delivery Network (Amazon CloudFront) for the Client and a Cloud Application Provider (Heroku) for the Server.

The session is today at 4:50 PM in Rosewood. Hope to see you there!

Presenting in Dallas: Play Framework, HTML5 and Java

Presenting at GraphConnect 2012: Building & Deploying Graph-based Web Apps

On November 6th I will be presenting Building & Deploying Graph-based Web Apps at the GraphConnect 2012 conference in San Francisco. Here is the session description:

This session will teach you how to build a Graph-based web application with Java, Play Framework, and Neo4j. You will also lean how to deploy the application on the cloud with Heroku. The session will primarily be code and live demos.

I hope to see you there!
