Mobile Applications with Apache Flex - Justin Mclean, Class Software
Apache Flex is an open source framework for easily building applications for mobile devices, the browser and desktop. In this talk I'll give a brief overview of Apache Flex and how it can be use to make cross platform applications including native mobile application on iOS and Android. I’ll look it's UI XML markup language, component hierarchy, binding, event bubbling, skinning, themes and other major features of the framework that make creating mobile applications easy. I’ll also show recent features added to Apache Flex including new mobile IOS and Android themes and the new Flat Spark skin. I’ll show most of this via code snippets of a simple working Flex mobile application.

Building FlexJS Applications with Maven - Christofer Dutz, codecentric AG
The Apache Flex team has been working on hard pushing our new Falcon compiler and FlexJS toward a first 1.0 release. While it has been possible to use these new technologies from within the Adobe Flash Builder IDE other IDEs and any form CI system have been unable to use them. In the last months Falcon and Flexmojos support for Falcon and FlexJS have been improved dramatically, maturing from a buggy proof of concept to a reliably working version. In this session I will explain how the Maven support allows building FlexJS applications with any IDE that supports Maven and what new workflows allow bundling FlexJS applications as frontend for a normal WAR application.

Java Web applications based on Struts2 and AngularJS - Johannes Geppert, Apache Software Foundation & Amazon
Struts2 is a stable and active developed Java framework provided by "The Apache Foundation" to build Web Applications. It is a really flexible action based MVC framework and can easily be extended by plugins like for a jQuery, jQuery UI, Bootstrap integration, REST actions, JSON results and many more. AngularJS is a modern MVC front-end framework created and maintained by Google. Both together is a great way to build stable and modern web applications with a great user experience. Struts2 can be used for back-end actions as JSON provider, for file-uploads, streaming actions, text provider and more. AngularJS is one of the most used front-end frameworks with good tutorials and documentation. This talk is about the state the project and the upcoming release 2.5 and will give a short introduction about how to start with both frameworks and how they play well together.
