jQuery Europe Conference Brings International Top-speakers to Vienna

VIENNA, January 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

- The most well known JavaScript conference will be held in Austria for the very first time - with a focus on Smart TV, Responsive Web Design and Mobile.

From Friday, February 22 to Saturday, February 23 the Viennese Palais Liechtenstein will be the meeting point for the global IT community involved with the popular JavaScript framework jQuery. This two-day conference, which brings together developers from all over Europe, offers a platform for sharing knowledge regarding the latest web technologies for the jQuery community and all of those interested in JavaScript.

Numerous internationally renowned speakers await the guests. They will be discussing the latest trends in web apps and smart TV development with jQuery, as well as providing further insights into the future of IT. Just to mention a few, the speaker list will include Richard D. Worth (director of the jQuery Foundation), Doug Neiner (jQuery core member), Jörn Zäfferer (jQuery UI core member), Patrick Lauke (Opera JavaScript developer), and Sebastian Kurfürst (TYPO3 core member).

Patrick Lauke will tell us everything that is worth knowing about so-called Smart TV Apps and what role jQuery plays in their programming. In his talk, he'll take a look at the unique challenges that developers face when creating web applications and content for Smart TVs.

jQuery Mobile leader Todd Parker's session will cover the built-in RWD capabilities of the Mobile framework and walk through real-world examples of how to use media queries and mobile-first thinking to build responsive sites and apps. Techniques for improving performance will also be covered, including how to minimize bandwidth and server requests, handling high resolution displays for images and scalable vector graphics, and selectively layering content and features based on device capabilities. In addition to the conference, there will be workshops - "jQuery Advanced" and "jQuery Mobile" - to provide an opportunity for attendees to get further depth in their knowledge during the days of the conference.

The conference is organized and hosted in Vienna by Gentics GmbH, an Austrian Software specialist.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
