Subject Proposed Cordova replacement session (was RE: [ApacheCon] Scheduling help, pass 2)
Date Wed, 11 Mar 2015 23:21:28 GMT
Here's the session that my colleague is proposing for the mobile track. I don't want to add
it myself as a) it's not my track and b) Eric is a work colleague (we may have Parashu as
a co-presenter, he's a Cordova committer but may not be available)

Cordova: Are Universal Apps enough?

Universal Apps are the promise of applications that can easy run on any Windows device, but
is that enough? How about running on any Windows device as well as any mobile device regardless
of operating system? Cordova is an excellent example of cross platform technology. Cordova
is also THE example of Universal App enabler. During this session we will demonstrate what
"Universal App" means in the context of Cordova. We will look at tooling that can be used
to deliver on the Cordova vision of Universal App (and Cross Platform) paradigm.

I'm working on ensuring it will be an excellent talk. My concern will be erased if I can talk
Chris Douglas (Hadoop PMC Chair) to participate ;-)

I'll share the abstract for review.


Microsoft Open Technologies, Inc.
A subsidiary of Microsoft Corporation

(HD Insight is Microsofts Hadoop based big data service). I'm a little concerned about just
dropping that in given that it might appear self-serving.

Probably. ;-)

Do you think it will be an excellent talk, that people will want to (pay to, travel to) attend?
That's really the only thing I'm concerned about.
