Philadelphia Emerging Technologies for the Enterprise Conference

Speaker: Ola Bini

Talk: Polyglot Patterns   

Fourth in our ETE 2011 screencast series

We are facing more and more complex problems and our current approaches aren’t as effective any more. One of the newer trends is to adopt new languages to attack these new problems. But just taking up a new language is usually not a very pragmatic solution. A middle ground approach is instead to combine new languages with your current approach. This approach is called polyglot programming, and the goal is to use the strongest features of each language and then combine them together on a platform with strong libraries.

This presentation will discuss the reasons for going polyglot and some patterns on how to make it work.

Talk: Buttons Are a Hack: The New Rules of Designing for Touch   

Third in our ETE 2011 screencast series

Fingers and thumbs turn design conventions on their head. Touchscreen interfaces create ergonomic, contextual, and even emotional demands that are unfamiliar to desktop designers. Find out why our beloved desktop windows, buttons, and widgets are weak replacements for manipulating content directly, and learn practical principles for designing mobile interfaces that are both more fun and more intuitive. Along the way, discover why buttons are a hack, how to develop your gesture vocabulary, and why toys and toddlers provide eye-opening lessons in this new style of design.

Philadelphia Emerging Technologies for the Enterprise Conference

Keynote Speaker: Stormy Peters

Talk: Would You Give It Away (Again)?  

Second in our ETE 2011 screencast series

One of the things about the open source community and web developers that continues to baffle those non-open source people is, why do you do it? People and companies work on open source software and open web applications for a number of reasons from scratching an itch to gaining a reputation to building a resume to contributing to a good cause. The interesting problem comes when money enters into the equation. Research shows that when someone works on something for free for internal rewards, those internal rewards are replaced if you start paying them. Then if you stop paying them, they will stop working on it. So when people get paid to work on open source software, does that change things? If their free web application starts making money, does that change things? How can companies work with these open processes and technologies in a productive way? Why are open technologies important to business?

Philadelphia Emerging Technologies for the Enterprise Conference

Keynote Speaker: Molly Holzschlag

Talk: Return to Paradise: The Web as it was Meant to Be  

First in our ETE 2011 screencast series

In this keynote session, Molly will compare the core principles of the Web as it was envisioned to the Web we have today. Are we moving toward or away from those original ideas, and if so, is that helping or harming the Web? This thought-provoking talk covers the influences of the W3C, browser companies and most importantly how we as an industry are truly agents of change. And look out, audience! There will be some enjoyable anecdotes from the bad old days of the Web, and the audience should be prepared to be asked about their own misdeeds along the way.
