The cell phone has evolved a long way from being a bearer of voice to being a sophisticated platform to deliver magical applications to the user. This new definition of the phone requires a new thought in how we craft and how we interplay with thousands of applications that ride on it. Powerful engineering, Simplicity of use and Ease of deployment, are the key drivers to make smartphones ubiquitous. Smartphones need to address that application which each user can relate and benefit in his or her own way. This keynote will delve on an approach to attend to this need.
Many successful iPhone applications draw their power from online systems. Social networks like Twitter, Flickr, Facebook, and online services such as newspapers, stock information or weather sites offer iPhone applications that interact with their existing infrastructure in different ways. In this talk you will learn how to leverage the power of your server-side API, whether it is based on REST or SOAP architectures, and you will get an insight into knowing the best approaches in terms of choice of data formats, costs of implementation, performance, and bandwidth consumption.
Web and server-side API developers interested in offering iPhone or iPad clients to their online services. Experienced iPhone and iPad programmers interested in using networking libraries to access remote data from their applications.
ADO.NET Entity Framework can cut down your development time but if you don't know what you're going to pay a performance price at runtime. There are a host of design time and run time patterns you can follow to make your Entity Framework based applications run significantly faster not only when interacting with the database, but also when working with in-memory entities. In this session we'll look at the performance traps that many developers unknowingly fall into then learn the tricks you need to know to get the best performance you can from Entity Framework whether you are working locally, in the cloud or a combination of both.

The relational database model was designed to solve the problems of yesterday’s data storage requirements. The massively connected world of today presents different problems and new challenges. We’ll explore the NoSQL philosophy, before comparing and contrasting the strengths and weaknesses of the relational model versus the NoSQL model. While stepping through real-world scenarios, we’ll discuss the reasons for choosing one solution over the other. To complete this session, let’s demonstrate our findings with an application written with a NoSQL storage layer and explain the advantages that accrue from that decision. By taking a look at the new challenges we face with our data storage needs, we’ll examine why the principles behind NoSQL make it a better candidate as a solution, than yesterday’s relational model Speaker - Gary Short
Alistair Cockburn has described software development as a game in which we choose among three moves: invent, decide, and communicate. Most of our time at technology conferences is spent learning how to be better at inventing. Beyond that, we understand the importance of good communication, and take steps to improve in that capacity. Rarely, however, do we acknowledge the role of decision making in the life of software teams, what can cause it to go wrong, and how to improve it. In this talk, we will explore decision making pathologies and their remedies in individual, team, and organizational dimensions. We'll consider how our own cognitive limitations can lead us to to make bad decisions as individuals, and what we might do to compensate for those personal weaknesses. We'll learn how a team can fall into decision-making dysfunction, and what techniques a leader might employ to healthy functioning to an afflicted group. We'll also look at how organizational structure and culture can discourage quality decision making, and what leaders to swim against the tide. Software teams spend a great deal of time making decisions that place enormous amounts of capital on the line. Team members and leaders owe it to themselves to learn how to make them well.
