Technical content is the heart of every developer conference, and we’re proud to say we had over 70 sessions at SenchaCon 2013. For those of you who attended, you know that nothing beats the in-person experience, networking with peers, and meeting directly with Sencha engineers.
Here’s the video of the SenchaCon kickoff — our keynote presentation to a standing-room only audience in Orlando last week! We had some great guest speakers and showed Architect 3.0, Ext JS for touch devices and grid gadgets, Touch grids and much more. Plus, we introduced and demoed the all-new Sencha Space.
Yesterday’s SenchaCon keynote address was filled with exciting announcements. We’ll be posting a video of the entire keynote shortly, but here’s a summary of all of the new stuff that was announced and demonstrated on stage.
The Salesforce Platform Mobile Services are a set of tools, frameworks, and APIs to help you rapidly build enterprise mobile apps for any device. The Salesforce Platform Mobile Services pair with your mobile app just as seamlessly as Force.com pairs with your enterprise apps. It is a powerful MBaaS providing mobile developers backend storage and additional features like configurable security, secure offline storage, and push notifications amongst several other platform services. We’re pleased to announce that in an upcoming launch we’ll be releasing new mobile packs centered around Sencha Touch.
The Sencha engineering and technical teams are really excited for SenchaCon July 16–19 in Orlando, FL. They’ve been working hard on taking Ext JS, Touch, and Architect to the next level and can’t wait to share the new features and capabilities. We also have a brand new product we’re introducing to the Sencha arsenal and we’ll be sharing all of the details with you at SenchaCon.
As we speak, the entire Sencha team is battened down for the closing weeks of preparation for SenchaCon 2013. We’ve published most of our sessions, announced most of our speakers and shown you the insane after-hours parties we’ve got in store. Now we’re going to give you a little sneak peek at what we’ll be talking about in those secret sessions on the schedule.

We are trying something different and very cool this year at SenchaCon 2013 in Orlando in July — a mini-unconference! Some of you may be familiar with unconferences (also known as “open spaces”, “birds of a feather”, etc) — but for those of you who are not, an unconference consists of unstructured sessions that are determined and hosted by you, the conference attendees.
