August 2013 Meeting Announcement

Note: Meeting will be Tuesday, August 20th

Mobile Development in the Cloud

So we have all heard that you can store data in the cloud and that it is always available through an easy to use api. Well in this session I will show you how to use Icenium and then take and connect your mobile app to Parse.com so that you really can easily store and update data in the cloud. As a bonus I will show you how to use Parse’s cloud code and send emails through the cloud using Mailgun.

Speaker
Chuck Catron

I am a software developer that got started in computers in 1996. Before that I was in the U.S. Navy for 6 years after high school. When I started in computers I was programming in Pick Basic and it was crap. Then I converted to Microsoft using VB 5, then of course I moved on to VB 6. I got a great break in 2002 when I talked someone into letting me be their freelance web developer in ASP.Net 1.1 and C#. I didn’t have a clue what I was doing, but they didn’t know and I didn’t bill them for at least half the hours. I got ramped up pretty quick mainly because I quit sleeping and was really working my butt off. Now I have been doing C# and Asp webforms/MVC for the last 11 years and I love it. I have done the backend work building libs to get and save my data and that work is ok? I really like the UI stuff. I have been spending a lot of time with jQuery. I am also digging the Backbone stuff not for the whole thing but really how it organizes my jQuery and makes it really easy to figure out.
