NCDevCon | 8/15/17 6:00 PM | 2017
Electron: Desktop Development for Web Developers Imagine if you will, your Manager asks you to develop a new desktop application. You're so used to web development that you don't know how to get started. What should you do? Dig out your old VB 6 books or learn a new technology? Better yet, keep those web skills and use Electron. Electron is the cross-platform application shell GitHub originally built for the Atom editor. The focus of this talk will allow you to leave with the st

NCDevCon | 8/15/17 3:00 PM | 2017
Stop JavaScripting like it's 1999 JavaScript is moving fast. Last year’s best practices are quickly becoming today’s anti-patterns as we experience fundamental shifts in the language. With so many outdated learning resources out there, it's hard to know if we're doing things right. In this talk, Hunter Loftis will introduce us to the new rules of modern JavaScript. Whether you're a new developer trying to learn modern best practices or a veteran looking to break old habits, 20

NCDevCon 2017 Session-NoSQL for Mobile in Practice [+]
NCDevCon | 8/14/17 6:00 PM | 2017
NoSQL for Mobile in Practice NoSQL has become the ad hoc term for a wide range of alternatives to relational databases. NoSQL databases address a number of issues with the way database use has evolved. Mobile in particular presents a number of new challenges, including scaling to support thousands or even millions of users, off-line availability, synchronization, and more. Choosing NoSQL is just the first step, though. In this session, we’ll take a look at the rise of NoSQL, wh

Migrating from a Node App to Serverless [+]
Raymond Camden'sBlog | 8/14/17 6:00 PM
For a while now I’ve been thinking about how I would go about migrating a “traditional” Node application to a serverless one. All I’ve needed is a good example - and last week I found one. While going through the apps I had set up on Bluemix, I remembered that I had a Node server running to power my Twitter bot, https://twitter.com/randomcomicbook. I blogged about this project over a year ago (

I have been working for Ortus Solutions for over two years now, and still, every day I learn something new about one of our modules or tools. In one of my current customer projects, we are taking a ContentBox installation ( our Modular Content Management System built on top of ColdBox ), customizing it, extending it, and it's really fun. One of the big customizations for this projects is extending the permissions structure, outside of what we wanted to do in the ContentBox core.

In the last year, I’ve been fortunate to start a new software job which has also freed me up to playing with new environments and experiences. I’ve also been making larger pushes to contribute to the open source world; specifically the FW/1 ecosystem with the FW/1 Console CommandBox module;

NCDevCon | 8/11/17 3:00 PM | 2017

What's the difference between high functioning teams that produce great results quarter after quarter, and teams that miss? In this highly-opinionated talk, I'll share lessons from high functioning organizations
