App Engine, Dart, and Android at DevNexus

Posted by David Chandler on March 23, 2012

DevNexus keynote

DevNexus keynote

First, a huge thank you to the volunteer organizers and sponsors of DevNexus! The Atlanta JUG‘s annual not-for-profit conference attracted 500 mostly Java developers this year and remains one of the best values of any developer conference in the world.

I gave an update on Google App Engine for Java (see slides) and a pitch for HTML5 + Dart (see slides).

There were a lot of talks on mobile / Web development this year, including:

  • JQuery Mobile framework (Raymond Camden, Adobe)
  • Intro to PhoneGap (Raymond Camden, Adobe)
  • Java-Powered Mobile Cross-Platform Mobile Apps with Phone Gap (Andrew Trice)
  • Web vs. Apps keynote (Ben Galbraith)
  • Easy Mobile Development: Intro to Appcelerator Titanium (Pratik Patel)
  • What’s New in Android (Robert Cooper)
  • Spring for Android (Roy Clarkson, Spring)
  • Mind-Blowing Apps with HTML5 Canvas (David Geary)

All the mobile / Web talks that I attended were standing room only (70-130 people, depending on room capacity). It seems that mobile in the enterprise is red hot and enterprise apps are good candidates for Web apps vs. native. I was particularly impressed with

Thanks again to Gunnar, Vince, Sudhir, and the gang for making DevNexus such a high-quality event.
