Sencha Expands International HTML5 Training Program; Signs Key Partners in Latin America and Japan

Okkralabs and Xenophy Join Avantsoft in Expanded Global Training Partner Program

REDWOOD CITY, Calif.—May 8, 2013—Sencha, the leader in powering HTML5 development for desktop and mobile applications, today announced significant international expansion through definitive training partnerships with Okkralabs of Latin America and Xenophy of Japan. The new additions join existing Indian training partner Avantsoft to grow Sencha’s global footprint, which now includes Australia, Canada, Europe, India, Japan, Latin America and the United States.

Sencha’s HTML5 application frameworks, Sencha Touch and Sencha Ext JS, enable developers to build fast and powerful apps that work across desktops and leading mobile platforms including Apple iOS, Google Android, BlackBerry 10 and Microsoft Windows Phone 8. More than two million enterprise and independent developers worldwide have used Sencha application frameworks and tools to build critical internal and external applications.

Sencha’s training program provides partners with exclusive rights to deliver official Sencha training through both open and onsite training classes to further extend developers’ expertise in building HTML5 apps. HTML5 is rapidly usurping the native development approach as the global standard for app development.

“In the last 12 months, we have experienced unprecedented demand for training on Sencha frameworks and tools all over the world, with particular growth in South and Central America, and Japan,” said Jeff Hartley, vice president of services at Sencha.
“Xenophy and Okkralabs are first-class training organizations with deep expertise in HTML5, and they are strategic partners for Sencha that will further fuel our expansion in these markets.”

International developers can find the courses offered by training partners from the main Sencha website, and are guaranteed to receive the same curriculum delivered in classes led by Sencha’s own instructors. Content for each country will be localized to meet local market needs, and delivered by instructors who are native speakers of local languages.

“We are excited to offer Sencha’s proven training approach and methodology to developers throughout Latin America, from Argentina to Mexico,” said Michael O’Rourke, CEO of Okkralabs. “With the high demand for quality training and the exploding adoption of Sencha’s tools in the developer community, our partnership provides Okkralabs with an enormous opportunity to expand our growth and reach.”

“Xenophy is proud to work with Sencha to provide the exact tools and training required by Japanese developers to rapidly build high quality HTML5 apps for the enterprise market,” said Kazuhiro Kotsutsumi, CEO of Xenophy. “The chance to provide Sencha’s high level curriculum is a win-win for Xenophy and Sencha, and we’re excited to move forward.”
