We will be at the Developer Week conference next week in San Francisco where we will be running a boot camp on Wednesday, February 19th from 9:00am–10:40am. At the boot camp you’ll use Sencha Architect to quickly build a Touch Asset Tracking application. You can still sign up for the bootcamp, so add Sencha to your agenda today.
The cost of data breaches has continued to climb in recent years. In its 2013 annual survey on the cost of data breaches, the Ponemon Institute reported that the cost of a data breach has once again increased year-over-year. For organizations whose data breaches resulted from malicious attack, the cost of the breach per compromised record was actually higher than if the breach had occurred due to a system failure or unintentional human factor.
In December and January, Sencha surveyed a sample of 2,128 business application developers from its HTML5 development community. We asked about the types of applications that developers are building, the technologies that they’re using, as well as the devices they’re supporting. Many of the responses were in line with trends that the industry is aware of — for example, it’s no surprise that iPads are popular target devices — but there were also surprising results.
We are pleased to announce the availability of Sencha Space! Space is a new platform for securely managing mobile apps from the experts on HTML5 and mobile web application development.
Wearable electronics have seen a boom over the last year. This is mainly due to the adoption of advanced watches that can do anything from answer phone calls to play games. Google feels they have the next big thing in wearable technology, and today we are going to take a look at how that will affect us as developers.
Regardless of the type of application you’re building, there is almost always room to create a custom component or user extension that can be used across projects or teams. This is the second article in a two-part series on building a user extension and integrating it into Sencha Architect. In Part 2, we’ll walk you through the process of creating a reusable AUX (Architect User Extension) package.
You asked and we delivered…SenchaCon 2014 will be in the heart of Silicon Valley at the Santa Clara Convention Center, November 10-13, 2014. This is a must-attend event, so mark your calendar now.
Today we’re excited to announce that we’ve reached a fantasic milestone: 500,000 registered forum members! Congratulations to Tim Guthrie for becoming the 500,000th member of the community. In the last five years, the Sencha community has grown by 10x. We can’t thank you enough for all the participation, assistance and feedback that’s helped us to create and improve our projects and products.
In this guest post, Carl-Johan Elger will introduce you to the Leap Motion Controller and describe how DecidoKompetensor built a Sencha Touch application to work with it. The app is a visualizer that makes data available and browsable for workers in a warehouse. It’s controlled by gestures, enabling users to interact with it from a distance.
