Speaking at COLTT 2015

I’ve been absent from this regional conference in Boulder, CO for a couple of years now – but will be at the University of Colorado campus for COLTT 2015 in August. The title of my talk is Mobile Application Development Technology Roundup – where I’ll be examining the differences between some of my favorite cross-platform mobile development frameworks.

Have a look at the full schedule and list of presenters and do register if you’ll be in the area.


Mobile Application Development Technology Roundup

Date: August 6th 2015 – 2:45pm
Session Type: Technology Round-up
Topics: Disruptive Innovations, Mobile Technology and Devices, Research

Learning objectives:

  • Explore current choices in cross-platform mobile development
  • Be aware of the current landscape and what may lie down the road

Abstract: So many choices! With many schools opting for a BYOD approach to mobile learning, what is the best technology to build upon which can target all the major mobile devices? This session will present a solid rundown of a number of cross-platform mobile application development technologies to give you a leg up on expectations and application. Which technology is best??? Not the most simple question to answer but here is some information that can help!


Starling, Feathers, and Adobe® AIR® with IntelliJ IDEA

As mentioned in my previous post about Apache Flex® and Adobe® AIR® with IntelliJ IDEA… I have also recorded a free series of videos around Starling, Feathers, and Adobe AIR with IntelliJ IDEA.

You may be aware that I have a full, extended course on using Starling and Feathers to build a mobile application using Adobe AIR published over at Lynda.com: Building a Mobile App with Feathers and Starling. That course is much more involved but this set of videos should be a good introduction to using these frameworks in IntelliJ IDEA.

You can watch the playlist over on YouTube, or as embedded below:
