The DFW ColdFusion User Group normally meets the 2nd Tuesday of each month. We'd planned to avoid Valentine's day and meet on the 16th with a 2nd presentation on Ext.js. However, the guys at the Dallas Flex User Group informed me that they will be hosting Ted Patrick from Sencha (the owners of Ext.js) on the same night. Check out the details and note that this is NOT at our normal meeting location at Paladin's offices.

Ted Patrick currently holds the position of Director of Developer Relations at Sencha. He works with developers to create applications using web technologies including HTML5, JavaScript, and CSS. Prior to Sencha, Ted worked at Barnes and Noble on NOOK Apps and on Flash & Flex at Adobe Systems. Along the way, he founded 4 companies as an entrepreneur, raised vc funding, and sold 1. Ted loves to write software. No, He really, really, loves to write software. So much he can hardly think of it as work. Ted especially loves to help solve the hard strategy problems in combining business and software. The past 2 years have been filled with learning the ins and outs of the Android Operating System and how best to write software for phone-tablet form factor devices (IOS/Android). Lately, Ted dove head first into building apps using HTML5. When he is not writing code, you will find him either spending time with his family or scuba diving.


This month we thought we'd take a look at something a little different than our usual. We'll be welcoming Ted Patrick who will walk you through Sencha's frameworks for building mobile and desktop applications using web technologies including HTML5, JavaScript, and CSS. We will cover the framework's foundation (OOP+MVC), standard libraries, containers, components, xtype rendering, and most importantly cross-browser support. Bring an open mind and a laptop, we will be building applications from scratch; feel free to follow along. Sencha provides frameworks, tools, and services for building professional applications with HTML5.
