10 Years On, Ext JS Reinvented Again
Speakers: Don Griffin & Gautam Agrawal, Sencha
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".
Speaker: Nige White, Sencha
Speakers: Don Griffin & Subu Baskaran, Sencha

Make Your GWT Graphics Sizzle with D3.js and JsInterop
Speaker: David Becker, Sencha
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, Sencha
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, Sencha
Refine Enterprise Applications by Focusing on User Experience
When looking at large scale and data heavy enterprise applications, we often notice a lack of user experience (UX) design. People today are spoiled with user friendly and modern applications to aid them in their daily tasks for everything from shopping to social networking to ordering a cab; however, they don’t get the same user friendly experience in their work applications. An important challenge for enterprise application developers is that users now expect the same excellent user experience in their work applications as they have in their personal ones. The enterprise market has long been behind the consumer market, but the gap is closing. Ext JS is a superb framework for developing data heavy applications, and it provides a large set of user friendly and customizable components to manage and visualize enterprise data. Furthermore, Ext JS provides the tools you need to build custom and reusable components that will take your applications to the next level. In this session, we will look at how we at Orango have used Ext JS together with Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems to develop user friendly and modern applications for all platforms. We will also look at real-world examples of custom Ext JS components that are built to provide a great user experience, but also with code maintenance and refactoring in mind. After this session, you will have the tools and knowledge to spoil your enterprise users with excellent user experience.
Speaker: Emil Pennlöv, Team Leader, Orango AB
Building Enterprise Ext JS Apps with Mavenized Sencha Cmd
Speaker: Frank Wienberg, Software Architect, CoreMedia AG
Handle Real World Data with Confidence
In a dream world, any Web developer would also be in charge of designing the way data is loaded and saved to the servers. Some of us don´t live in a dream world just yet. Some of us even have to deal with legacy data structures that simply cannot be changed. Luckily Ext JS has a pretty impressive data package that helps us with this task. We simply need to learn how to master it. And this is where this session begins. To connect real model data to a view model, mess around with it, validate it, and then save it back to the server is crucial for any modern application. I will help you understand how some of the key features of the Sencha Ext JS classes work together to handle many of the real world challenges. We will take a closer look at the classes and configs that help us consume and handle the more advanced data structures. I will explain how they are connected and how you can tweak them to your needs. The focus will be on view models, data models, data sessions, proxies, stores, and associations, and how they all come together in a real world application.
Speaker: Fredric Berling, System Architect, Entence AB
Building Offline-First Enterprise-Grade Salesforce Apps using Ext JS 6
Offline support is a key use case for mobile apps, especially in the enterprise. This session walks through the complete lifecycle of building an offline-first enterprise-grade app using Ext JS 6. It uses the Salesforce Mobile SDK as a case study and demonstrates how Ext JS can be used in conjunction with enterprise platforms to build offline-first hybrid apps.
Speaker: Gaurav Kheterpal, Head of Mobility, Metacube
Building Ext JS using HATEOAS
Newer REST-based APIs are starting to use HATEOAS, which stands for Hypermedia as the Engine of Application State. The central idea of HATEOAS is to allow the server to control the state transitions instead of hard coding all the links into the client. We've integrated a HATEOAS layer in the Ext JS framework based on the HAL standard (http://stateless.co/hal_specification.html) and into the Ext JS model and store system. We will be showing the techniques we used to accomplish this in a way that keeps the Ext JS model and store usage the same as the standard mechanism.
Speaker: Jeff Stano, Chief Software Architect, Unifocus
Develop, Test, and Deploy Your Ext JS Applications with Docker
Do you work on a team where you are forced to use a specific operating system, a specific program or even a specific toolchain to work on your project, just because it depends on a specific environment? A lot of work has gone into finding workarounds for incompatibilities, due to the use of different operating systems and software versions. But still, ask yourself, did you ever run into problems, because your staging system was not an exact clone of production or your continuous integration server runs an old version of Sencha Cmd. Basically, have you ever heard the phrase: "Everything works fine on my machine?" Docker is here to rescue you. Running your toolchain, Ext JS application, back-end server, and even your database - all in a standardized container format that can be transported and reused, throughout your process. In this session, you will learn how to automate a typical workflow, including developing, testing, and deploying, by using Docker containers and common continuous integration solutions.
Speaker: Jonas Schwabe, Software Engineer, eyeworkers Interactive GmbH

Developing COSMOS using Sencha Ext JS 5
Speaker: Shenglin Xu, GIS Analyst/Developer, City of Surrey
Expect the Unexpected: How to Deal with Errors in Sencha Applications
Dealing with unexpected exceptions on the server side is something we've all done for ages. Now it's time to apply the same quality goals and monitoring to our JS codebase. This is especially important for Sencha applications where the front-end usually contains 100k+ lines of code. I'll demonstrate various powerful monitoring techniques and tricks that we are using ourselves at Bryntum.
Speaker: Mats Bryntse, Founder, Bryntum
A Data-driven Ext JS Application for the Embedded World
