For a long while, we’ve built applications pretty much the same way. Regardless of the frameworks (or even languages and platforms) employed, we’ve packaged up our web application, deployed it to a server somewhere, and asked our users to point their web browser at it.
But now we’re seeing a shift in not only how applications are deployed, but also in how they’re consumed. The cost and hassle of setting up dedicated servers is driving more applications into the cloud. Meanwhile, our users are on-the-go more than ever, consuming applications from their mobile devices more often than a traditional desktop browser. And even the desktop user is expecting a more interactive experience than is offered by simple page-based HTML sites.
With this shift comes new programming models and frameworks. It also involves a shift in how we think about our application design. Standing up a simple HTML-based application is no longer good enough.

Since we don’t have a speaker for this month, we thought we’d have a party instead.We will provide the pizza and pop. Feel free to bring desserts.
If you want, bring a present and we’ll exchange them somehow (by drawing names or playing some game).
Friends, significant others, and children are welcome.
Please go to the g+ event to let us know if you are going:

- 11:40 am – Main Presentation
- 12:43 pm – Wrap Up
