Cordova CLI vs API: Combining Cordova with Other Web Dev Tools Using Build System Workflows - Mark Koudritsky, Google
The traditional Cordova CLI based development workflow is often difficult to add into existing web apps or combine with other popular tools such as Sass, CoffeeScript, Bower etc. I will demonstrate the cordova tools API using a simple workflow based on Gulp where Cordova can easily coexist with such tools allowing for greater flexibility in workflow customization and automation.

Egocentric Architecture - Benjamin Young, The Hypothesis Project
These days, all our data moves away from us. We comment in someone else's site. We store our photos behind lengthy terms of service. We scatter our digital selves across the cloudy online landscape.

We can also change things for the better.

In this talk, we'll explore the self-centered world of offline-first applications. Apache CouchDB's replication protocol has provided simple data movement for over a half decade. Adding PouchDB to the mix (with it's CouchDB compatible replication), means our data can start close to us and move to the Cloud when we choose--or when the Cloud happens to be available.

We'll first explore the personal and business implications, then an example application that combines Apache CouchDB, PouchDB, and pouch.host to build an offline-first, egocentric application to prove the points.

Cordova: Are Universal Apps Enough? - Eric Mittelette, Microsoft
Universal Apps are the promise of applications that can easy run on any Windows device, but is that enough? How about running on any Windows device as well as any mobile device regardless of operating system? Cordova is an excellent example of cross platform technology. Cordova is also THE example of Universal App enabler. During this session we will demonstrate what "Universal App" means in the context of Cordova. We will look at tooling that can be used to deliver on the Cordova vision of Universal App (and Cross Platform) paradigm.

Corinthia, A Responsive Design Editor for the Cloud and Mobile Devices - Jan Iversen
Corinthia is a brand new apache project, based on the very successfull UXwrite editor. Peter Kelly decided earlier this year to make his editor open source (Thanks), and we rapidly built a community around it. Corinthia is firstly a toolkit for document format conversion, that ffacilitates round trip conversion without data loss. The engine us a complete new idea comming from desktop editors like LO and AOO. The idea of the editor is not to replace a full fledged desktop editor, but merely to let you correct minor things when you discuss your work with friends wich of course happens on a tablet.

Best Practices for Virtual Appliances: Creating Integrated Environments For Users and Developers - Sean Mackrory, Cloudera
Many software projects suffer from a lack of a good “Quick Start” environment. Complex systems can have obstacles such as obscure dependencies and error-prone procedures. Distributing a portable reference environment solves this problem for users and developers alike but it is not without pitfalls. The presentation will cover best-practices for creating a VM, live CD, Docker app or cloud deployment that will be reliable, lean, and most importantly, useful. Such a platform is ideal for demos, tutorials, testing, and more. Segments include:

* Uses for virtual appliances
* Recommended tools
* Nuances of common hypervisors
* Network configuration pitfalls
* Minimizing disk space & memory requirements
* And many other tips
