I wanted to share an update on the Flex to Sencha Roadshow. Thus far we have visited developers in Dallas, San Francisco, San Diego, Amsterdam (FITC), and most recently London. The roadshow has had a warm reception from Flex developers interested in Sencha as a platform. While the syntax of writing software with Sencha frameworks varies wildly from Flex, the core development paradigms are identical. With support for classes, component, and declarative UI; I know Flex developers will be very successful with Sencha as a platform.
In parallel to the roadshow, I have been visiting with many of the top Flex enterprise customers and many are well underway planning and building applications with Sencha. Additionally many of the leading Flex consulting firms and individual Flex consultants have attended Sencha training and are now beginning to build a new practice around application development on HTML5.
I am especially excited to announce that Sencha will be sponsoring “360Flex in Denver on March 15-18″:http://www.360flex.com/. I will be presenting a keynote at the end of the day on March 16 and we have a great party planned directly afterwards onsite.
