Sencha Conference: New Speakers, Events & More

October 04, 2010 | Michael Mullany

We're incredibly excited to see you in November for Sencha Conference. We're putting an enormous amount of work into it and we hope you'll join us for three days of intense learning centered around our current projects, upcoming releases, and emerging web technologies. So, what's new? At the current registration pace, we're expecting that we will sell out the conference soon. Our hotel block (after two expansions) is on track to sell out completely this week, so please do take advantage of the great $159 per room rate. The next best rate near the hotel is over $200, so it's a big savings.

New Sessions & Speakers

We've added a slew of new speakers and sessions bringing our total session count up to about 50. Our newest sessions and speakers are: Logos from BlackBerry, WidgetBox, PayPal and PhoneGap
  • Praveen Alavilli from Paypal talking about how to use PayPal's mobile payment APIs
  • Davis Frank from Pivotal Labs presenting on the Jasmine testing framework for JavaScript
  • Jay Garcia will talking about the "In Action" application development pattern for RIA
  • Giles Goodwin from WidgetBox will be presenting on using Sencha Touch
  • Laurent Hasson from RIM talking about how to use Blackberry's new WebWorks platform to develop native apps for BlackBerry using Sencha Touch
  • Ariya Hidayat, who heads up the Sencha WebKit team, will be talking about how to compile your own webkit browser and also on the internals of the major JavaScript engines
  • Andrew Lunny from Nitobi will be talking about PhoneGap and how to use it with Sencha Touch
Thank you for all your speaker submissions, we have more proposed than we can fit into the schedule, so we'll be letting you know on Friday if your talk has been accepted. If you still want to submit a talk, this is your last chance!

Hackathon and Component Makers Marketplace

We'll be throwing a hackathon on Monday evening where you can come hang out at the spectacular Crown Room with panoramic views of San Francisco and hack on a Sencha app. Put together a prototype in three hours, then do a lightning demo to show it off. Attendance will be capped due to room size, so it will be first-come, first-served. The next day (Tuesday), Brian Moeskau, creator of the upcoming Ext-Calendar-Pro, will host a "Component Makers" session. You'll get five minutes to present your component and talk about how you developed it. Brian is currently putting together the roster, so if you're interested in presenting your Ext JS, GWT or Sencha Touch component, give him an email at

Event Sponsorships

We have our major sponsorship slot filled, and now we're looking for a sponsor for the hackathon and for our coffee breaks, so if your company is interested send an email at And that's it for now. The conference ticket price is currently $1,095 — $200 off the full-price, and you also get a forum participation discount when you register. This discount ends at the end of October, so be sure to take advantage of it! We look forward to seeing you in November.
