Want to program to iOS but don't want to deal with Objective-C?
Don't want to buy a Mac just to build iPhone apps?
Want to build Windows Phone apps but don't want to switch to Windows or port to C#?
Java to the rescue!
Make WORA real again for mobile programming thanks to the open source community.
Thanks to the open source community it is now entirely possible to use Java in order to build native applications for iOS, Android, RIM, Windows Phone etc. without the compromises that HTML5 imposes.
The talk focuses on the open source Codename One project, which started its life within Sun Microsystems and eventually grew into a full grassroots project as its founders left Sun. As part of the talk we will build an application live on stage and demonstrate how it can be instantly deployed to devices.
The talk is based on two highly attended talks that were given in Java One 2012 covering this very subject.
Shai has been developing software professionally for the past 20 years and worked with Sun Microsystems since 2000. He has worked on countless projects from enterprise to desktop/consumer to mobile with many major corporations around the world. In mobile Shai was on the team that worked on the first DoCoMo Java Phone, the first mobile development kit from Sun and as the co-founder of the open source Codename One project.
