10 Years On, Ext JS Reinvented Again

Ext JS Grid – Bigger, Better, Faster
Over the years, the Ext JS Grid has supported thousands of enterprises with data-rich applications. We built the Grid at a time when legacy browser support was a must. With Ext JS 6, we introduced a modern grid which is even better and faster, because it’s built for ultra-high performance and HTML5 compliant modern browsers. Now, you can use the modern Ext JS Grid with an enormous amount of data that is updated at a very high frequency. When you see it in action, it will be clear why it’s "Bigger, Better, and Faster".

Mobile First? Desktop First? Or Should You Think Universal App!
Historically, web developers approached app development from the desktop first, and mobile was a secondary goal. Even concepts like responsive design evolved from the desktop side. Developers began with a desktop app and worked their way down to make a responsive app available for smaller screens. But now with the extraordinary growth of mobile users across the globe, that approach is being reversed. Developers are building mobile first, and then making progressive enhancements so the app is available on desktop. Should you be taking either a mobile or desktop first approach, or thinking about Universal Apps to deliver the right user experiences. This approach maximizes the shareability of code across these experiences. In this presentation, we’ll explore case studies that show the benefits of each approach.
Speaker: Gautam Agrawal
Web Development at the Speed of Thought: Succeeding in the App Economy
The Agile development has brought down the software delivery timelines from what used to be 12 to 18 months to a mere 2 to 4 months cycle. According to Forrester, software development is reaching a zero day event as feedback driven development is taking over requirements driven development. Because of this change, organizations need tools to optimize on the frequency of software delivery. In this presentation, we’ll explore unique ways to improve speed of app development using Sencha’s tools for visual drag and drop based app building and theming.
Speaker: Sandeep Adwankar
