Building Cordova Applications With Apache Flex - Christofer Dutz, Codecentric AG
In this talk I give an overview over the Flex project's efforts in optimizing the new Falcon compiler in a way that it is able to not only produce Flash applications, but also Html and JavaScript applications from the same code-base. I will lay special emphasis on how this hybrid approach makes it easy to build Cordova applications while utilizing the full stack of features and tools developers are usually used to: Type-Safe development, Unit-Testing, Integration-Testing. Code Coverage, Debugging an application from within the IDE.

Cordova And Firefox OS - Html5 For The Mobile Web - Jason Weathersby, Mozilla
Firefox OS is an open source operating system for mobile phones designed entirely around HTML5, Javascript, CSS and open web standards. Recently Firefox OS has been integrated into Cordova and offers another option for multiplatform mobile developers. By leveraging the inherent advantages of web development and giving developers access to hardware through web standards, we can make an open and affordable mobile web a reality. In this talk Jason Weathersby from Mozilla will show how Firefox OS works, how to build and debug apps for it, and how end users will benefit from this open alternative to other platforms.

An Introduction To Apache Flex - Justin Mclean, Class Software
Apache Flex is an open source framework for easily building applications for mobile devices, the browser and desktop.

In this talk I'll give a brief history of Apache Flex, cover the main features of Apache Flex including recent releases, it's UI XML markup language, component hierarchy, binding, event bubbling, skinning and other major features of the framework.

I'll show a simple Flex application and how easy it is to make MVC architecture web browser application and convert with few simple modifications from a web browser based application to one that runs on the desktop and in a mobile device.

Finally I look at some of the other more recent directions the project is evolving in with FlaconJX a ActionScript to JavaScript cross compiler, FlexJS a new JavaScript based framework and ant for Air an utility for making cross platform user friendly installers from ant scripts.
