Codemotion is an innovative tech event engaging developers of all languages and technologies in presentations & conversations about: mobile, web, makers, startup ideas, sustainability, game development and creative coding. Codemotion brings together the largest number of attendees, companies and communities. In 2013, Codemotion will be arriving in Berlin. The agenda is a full immersion of technical talks created with the help of all developer communities, including a public call of papers.
webinos has the pleasure to invite particpants for a hands-on practical workshop in the Fraunhofer webinos Lab with trainers from the webinos developer team. The workshop will be held at Codemotion Berlin on Saturday 11 May 2013, 2pm-4pm. See below for further information regarding registration, location, time and requirements.
Codemotion Workshop: webinos – Open Web Platform for Multiscreen Applications
Trainers: Alexander Futasz, Shanshan Yang, Robert Kleinfeld
This workshop offers an insight in the development of multiscreen applications with the webinos project. webinos is an open source platform that connects user’s devices securely and allows Web-based applications to run and use services and resources across different domains such as mobile, desktop, home media, in-car infotainment and Internet of Things (IoT). In a hands-on, practical workshop participants will learn how interoperability with other device types and platforms can be fostered and how multiscreen application development can be eased.
The first part of the workshop will consists of a brief introduction to the webinos project, as well as the demonstration of multiscreen applications that are developed with webinos APIs.
The next part involves installing and running the webinos open source platform.
3. webinos App Development
The main part of the workshop deals with developing webinos applications based on webinos APIs such as Widget API, Discovery API, Messaging API and Device Orientation API. Application development can sound like a daunting task. Fortunately, creating a webinos application is surprisingly simple. Therefore we will start with a simple “hello world” application. On this basis we will learn how much more sophisticated webinos applications can be through use of webinos APIs, as defined in the API specifications.
4. Multiscreen Applications
As a highlight we will create a simple multiscreen application live during the workshop, demonstrating that developing multiscreen applications does not require a complete rethinking of traditional development workflows. Afterwards, we will briefly look at how developers can benefit from the webinos open source platform targeted on multiscreen applications.
