Tech Talk: Ext JS and Angular 2 – Use the Best of Both to Build Your Apps
In this tech talk, we’ll build the same application twice – first with Ext JS 6.2 and then with Angular 2. We’ll compare and contrast the approaches of both frameworks, and you’ll be able to see the results on the spot. You’ll learn about the new bridge we’ve created that enables you to to use the Ext JS grid, treegrid, pivot grid, calendar, charts, and other components in your Angular 2 based apps. If you’re an Angular 2 user, you’ll see how you can use that framework to assemble the basic building blocks of an app and then add the powerful Ext JS components to complete your data-centric, cross-platform apps.

Creating a Flexible and Usable Industry-Specific Solution
Come hear how we used agile development and Sencha tools to meet our design requirements, to create a system that is highly configurable, flexible, and exceeds the expectations of our customers. Learn how to use an adaptive/responsive design to be able to support two very different types of users, with a single application, and using the same set of libraries. Most importantly, learn how to create a system that even your most important and demanding users will find value and actually want to use. By assembling some of the best programmers and DBA developers in the world, we have been able to create a best-in-class, fully functional, scalable and highly configurable system, while maintaining an amazingly easy-to-use interface.
We had a long list of design requirements, including:
• Ability to support the very different needs of the field sales force, and managers/home office.
• Providing a robust system that is simple for a salesperson to use, with minimal “clicks” to access all features, while providing a great deal of information and workflow capabilities.
• Providing a system that allows for multiple configurations, with a single source code, allowing different screen layouts and role-based business, display, and edit rules.
• Providing the necessary validation and system checks to ensure compliance with the complicated and consistently changing FDA, State, and local regulations.
• The ability to work online and offline, transparently to the user with automatic data replication and synchronization.
• Cross-platform compatibility for tablet and desktop systems, including iOS, MacOS, and Windows.

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.

GXT 5 - Going Gaga for Modern Theming
Our all-new theming system lets you take full advantage of modern web standards, including CSS3 and Google Closure Stylesheets (GSS) to achieve a variety of sophisticated rendering techniques. Developers, graphic designers, and usability experts alike can modify a theme because there are no special tools required. Everything is centralized, and you can preview changes in an instant. A theme factory gives you a great degree of flexibility, including runtime theme selection and mix-and-match theming. A straightforward BEM naming convention lets you target specific elements and states with precision, without confusing selectors. Better yet, components now follow a model-view-controller pattern that decouples appearance and behavior from state, which means you can quickly customize a widget to meet business needs in ways that just weren’t possible before. Let us show you why theming with GXT has never been easier — or more powerful!

Mobile First? Desktop First? Or Should You Think Universal App!
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.

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.

Testing in Isolation - Keeping the Pipeline and Codebase Clean
Development teams across all industries are realizing that they must be able to deliver quality code frequently in order to keep up with competition, meet user expectations, and to provide an ever-improving experience. Automated testing is critical to ensure that shipping code is quality code. Often testing is not leveraged early and often enough in the pipeline. This results in time being wasted, debugging failures, as well as reverting and rolling back. Because developers are not given feedback regarding their code changes until it is in the repository/pipeline and test automation run against it, it’s difficult to isolate the issue to particular developer commits. The solution to is to test in isolation, giving developers a feedback mechanism that notifies them if their code change is ready for review and merge. Developers need to address any test failures before their code can be put in the main branch and shipped. Other acceptance criteria can be enforced as part of this mechanism. The result is a commonly accepted standard of quality that must be maintained, as well as a set of criteria that must be satisfied before code makes it to the next step in the pipeline. Expert Neil Manvar will be present how testing in isolation can improve quality, increase developer velocity, and allow for organizations to more comfortably embrace and leverage Continuous Delivery. This session will also include a demo of testing in isolation using open source technologies such as Jenkins, Docker, GitHub, and Selenium. You’ll learn the advantages of shifting testing left, the importance of early developer of feedback, and how to best leverage automated testing in a Continuous Deployment pipeline.
