Conference mobile app for ApacheCon EU 2012 created with rapid mobile framework. Get news feed around the conf and see how to parse a presentation csv file to create views for the days and rooms of the venue.
This app is based on the ACEU12 talk "Rapid mobile development" from codeBusters .es in which you saw/can see the set-up of a rapid development environment to develop mobile applications. We used Apache Cocoon3 to generate parts of the Apache Cordova based gui. Jenkins CI creates us the native mobile clients (Android, iOS, Blackberry, ...).
The talk will show how to create a conference mobile app with different views. We will show how to connect to twitter to get a news feed and how to parse a presentation csv file to create views for the days and rooms of the venue. In this talk we will show how to do the set-up and extend it during the talk to demonstrate the instance prototyping. The set-up is a typical rapid development environment to develop mobile applications.
For the full static gui we will use Apache cordova which will then connect via AJAX calls to the cocoon3 layer to update the gui dynamically. Further we will explain how to use https://addons.mozilla.org/en-us/firefox/addon/pencil/ a Firefox add-on to do GUI prototyping and simple sketching.
We will use Apache Cocoon3 for the REST service tier, where we connect to the business back-end, process the response and are able to deliver in multiple formats. In our case we will parse a presentation.csv file and create day/room specific views for the gui. Further we will show how to use cocoon to use the outcome from the pencil prototyping as copy and paste base to create the cordova based gui layer.
We will explain how to set-up a jenkins cluster to create the native mobile clients which will need to build on different operating systems (Android under linux on master, iOS under osx slave, Blackberry on windows slave, ...)
