"In the last 12 months, we have experienced unprecedented demand for training on Sencha frameworks and tools all over the world, with particular growth in South and Central America, and Japan," said Jeff Hartley, vice president of services at Sencha, in a statement.

Hartley said that Xenophy and Okkralabs are first-class training organizations with deep expertise in HTML5, and they are strategic partners for Sencha that will further fuel the company’s expansion in these markets.

Sencha’s application frameworks, tools and cloud services empower developers to create high quality applications based on Web standards that can run on an unprecedented number of devices, platforms and browsers. The company’s flagship product, Sencha Complete, includes industry-leading JavaScript frameworks, tools, and services.

O’Rourke said that with the high demand for quality training and the exploding adoption of Sencha’s tools in the developer community, the company’s partnership provides Okkralabs with an enormous opportunity to expand growth and reach.

"Xenophy is proud to work with Sencha to provide the exact tools and training required by Japanese developers to rapidly build high quality HTML5 apps for the enterprise market," said Kazuhiro Kotsutsumi, CEO of Xenophy.
