Austin, Texas is incredibly rich in technology, as verified by 300 attendees at the HTML5TX conference this past weekend. Conference organizer Brandon Satrom did an awesome job and took time out to be interviewed by RussCamTV, so stay tuned for that. I also ran into old friend, Jeffery Palermo, who will be once again hosting Party with Palermo at the MVP Summit on Feb 17, another event sponsored by ComponentOne. I demonstrated Wijmo to Jeffery and he loved it and will be checking it out soon. In fact, I chatted with several folks about Wijmo, as it was a good fit for this conference and I handed out coupons for a show offer of 20 percent off to attendees. If you were at the conference and missed getting a card with 20 percent of Wijmo, please send me a tweet at www.twitter.com/russcamtv . HTML5 client development is a real world business need. The messaging here is simple. If your app does not work properly on different size devices in the mobility space, then you will lose business, and lots of it, period. I think Brandon is onto something here with a conference focusing on HTML5. Perhaps I should try and organize a HTML5 conference in Florida, what do you think? All I know is that every conference I attend, the rooms are packed for HTML 5 and jQuery. The attendees at the HTML5TX conference were all buzzing over the great content and presenters. I sat in on Garran Means session on …. Model-View-Websockets and she did a great job, despite being under the weather a bit. Hope you feel better Garann! I have been there as a presenter and the show must go on! The after event party was interesting, having it at the Capital Factory office with a great view from the 16th floor of the Omni hotel overlooking Austin. Capital Factory is a very cool incubation business . The food was delicious. Also, it is just a block away was the famous 6th Street, which totally blew my mind with an incredible lineup of restaurant, bars and people watching. I particularly liked Friends with some incredible music talent on both Friday and Saturday nights. It was a great way to celebrate receiving the Lifetime Achievement Award from INETA! Wijmo rocks in HTML5 and is our most heavily download trial, with no time expiration. If you have not tried it yet, download it, you will not be disappointed and the getting started documentation is awesome as in all the C1 products I have found. Wijmo works with Knockout as well.
