Announcements & Introductions

Mobilize your MongoDB using Appcelerator & Openshift(7:30 pm - 8:30 pm)

Grant Shipley, OpenShift PaaS Evangelist, Red Hat

Join us for a technical session on how to develop iPhone and Android apps with MongoDB backends in the cloud.Let's skip having to learn 3 different languages and jump-start the development process using what you already know.

We'll use Appcelerator's Titanium IDE to create a native mobile application targeting multiple mobile platforms. Once our coding is complete, we'll look at easy ways to deploy and manage MongoDB and manage our application using Git and OpenShift.

Nothing complicated, nothing convoluted. Just straight-ahead mobile-development goodness with MongoDB, Appcelerator's Titanium, Git, and OpenShift.


Open Forum (8:30pm - 9pm)

Bring your JBoss related questions to share with your peers.

  • What topics would you like to see in the future?
