Distributing HTML5 Web Apps in the Post PC World
Developer Evangelist
In a world quickly moving toward mobile device adoption, there is a growing pressure for web developers to learn new languages in order to adapt to the ever-changing landscape of content delivery. For years, the web has been the king of mass distribution. But now as app stores for mobile devices are driving huge monetization opportunities, how do web developers stay competitive in this new “post PC World”? In this talk, we'll cover the current opportunity HTML5 offers Web Developers both online and offline as well as how to take advantage of HTML5's cross platform advantages when it comes to quickly prototype out concepts to realizing large scale applications. I'll also cover HTML5 potential as a gaming platform had how JavaScript's dynamic nature helped me build and publish one game a month last year.

Bridging the Gap of the Module Wars
VP of Engineering
Penton Media
RequireJS is for “client side” developers and browserify is for “node developers.” Bower is for “client side” developers and npm is for “node developers.” Or so the popular tweets and blog posts would make you think. I’d like to tear down these walls with you and show you how the two sides aren’t that different after all. Practically, I’ll show you not only how to use bower dependencies in your browserify project, and npm dependencies in your RequireJS project. We can stand on the shoulders of both giants to build awesome software for the browser.

Conference Luncheon - Featuring Keynote by BlackBerry Developer Relations: HTML5 – Your Key to a Mobile Business
Sr. Manager, Enterprise Technical Partnerships
Blackberry Developer Relations
The impact of the Bring-Your-Own-Device trend has left most Enterprise and Government organizations stuck in the mud on mobile development. The challenges of security, connectivity and cross-platform development kill many projects before they even start. Taking advantage of cross-platform HTML5 languages, APIs and tools, you can focus your development on the right features and providing an engaging user experience. For many companies though, this brings questions like: “How does mobility fit in with our current business processes?”, “What Platforms do I support and lead with?”, and “Do we build apps in-house or partner with development experts?” With HTML5 as the backbone or your mobile development strategy, you can answer these questions, provide the top user experience and save time, money and headaches.

Node.js Micro-Services: The Water is Fine, Jump In!
Web Architect
The session chronicles a small but determined team in IBM Rational that took an opportunity (or excuse) of the new cloud-based development tools to ditch the tried and well worn path of Enterprise JEE and push instead for Node.js micro-services. You will learn how we arrived at a stack consisting of Node.js, express.js, Dust.js, jQuery, Require.js and Bootstrap. I will pass on the tips on what worked, and what to avoid. I hope that this session will encourage others still sitting on the fence to give Node.js a try in production. IBM is decidedly not a crazy startup: if we can do it, you can too. The water is fine, jump in!
HTML5 Mobile Apps Don't Have To Suck
Director of JavaScript Engineering
Sometimes, you've got to rock the boat to keep it from sinking. Belly's decision to scrap their native iPad app and build an HTML5 app was a risky move but proved to be one of the best decisions the startup has made. While mobile web is considered a harsh environment with low processing power, a few key techniques can be used to get the best performance out of your application. Belly's unique deployment platform, built on Phonegap's mobile framework, enables instantaneous software updates to any or all devices; making A/B testing a breeze. In this talk, Dave Arel will discuss how to build fast, proficient, native-like HTML5 mobile applications, and the enormous benefit it surely brings.

Visualizing Large Data Sets Using WebGL
Software Engineer
Data analysts must navigate increasingly larger data sets, sometimes with billions or more records. This session presents methods for interactive visualization of big data, following the idea that perceptual and interactive scalability should be limited by the chosen resolution of the information, not the scale of the data. Starting withmethods for interactive querying using binned plots through a combination of multivariate data tiles and parallel query processing. Ending with a discussion of design space of scalable visual summaries that use data reduction methods (such as binned aggregation or sampling) to visualize a variety of data types.
Security Risks on the Web
HackMiami / Information Security Services
The web is getting better but security is getting harder. Our friends in OWASP guide us as to the threats on the web. They look at how HTML5 hardens some of the security risks. The session also covers what risks are still known and if new threats are on the horizon.
