Apache Cordova in Action - Hazem Saleh, IBM
Apache Cordova is a platform for building native mobile apps using common Web technologies (HTML, CSS and JavaScript). Apache Cordova offers a set of APIs that allow the mobile app developers to utilize mobile native functions such as (Audio, Camera, Contacts …etc) using JavaScript. jQuery mobile is one of the best mobile web application frameworks, which allows the web developers to develop neat mobile web applications. This session discusses why there is a need for Hybrid mobile development, the current challenges of mobile development, and how using Apache Cordova can help in overcoming many of these technical challenges. It also highlights the best practices of using Apache Cordova with jQuery mobile. Finally, it demonstrates a real Cordova mobile app for showing the audience the best practices of designing, developing, and deploying hybrid Android and iOS mobile apps.

Tools for Cordova Committers - Andrew Grieve, Google
The Cordova project can sometimes be hard to contribute to given the large number of pieces that make it up. There are a few tools that make it much more manageable though. In this session, Andrew will cover many of the tools and techniques that make developing on Cordova a more coherent experience.

Data management for Apps That Work as Well Offline as They Do on the Network - Andrew Trice, IBM
Preparing mobile apps to accommodate large-scale growth brings fundamentally new challenges to backend management: the availability of data on offline devices, database sync and replication, and previously unimaginable usage spikes brought on by live events and media features. With mobile apps, you have to make it big. In this talk, IBM Developer Advocate Andrew Trice argues that the rise of mobile introduces new challenges (e.g. offline application data and database sync) that fundamentally cannot be addressed in even the most complex relational database management systems (RDBMS). Andrew will discuss current work at IBM Cloudant to launch enterprise-grade mobile-back-end-as-a-service (MBaaS) products and to simplify data management for mobile developers in both the public and private cloud.

Using Cloud Based VMs to Build Community - Ross Gardler, Apache Software Foundation
The first step in building a viable open source community around your first usable codebase is to attract users who may later become contributors. This session looks at best practices for using Virtual Machines to support users and potential contributors.

In this interactive session we'll discuss what users want from trial environments. We will also discuss what we need to provide in order to help a user become a contributor. Next, we'll explore ways of providing those environments as part of the normal release process of a typical project. Finally we'll take a quick look at how this kind of activity not only benefits the project community but can also drive business to companies providing services based on the open source project.

Modern DevOps with Docker in 2015 - Avi Cavale, Shippable
2014 was the year of Docker. The container-based world exploded on the scene with the promise to reinvent how you think about distributed applications. But is it just hype or are there immediate benefits to be realized? Join us to explore Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery leveraging containers, one of the early use cases proving successful with Docker, resulting in reduced Dev/Test cycle times and lower infrastructure costs. We'll walk through the end-to-end CI/CD workflow, highlighting the big wins containers have introduced, as well as discuss common challenges to avoid. Lastly, we'll look ahead, identifying the next set of use cases to likely achieve real-world benefits from containers.
