This is just a quick note to let you know that we are one of the proud sponsors of Pragma Conference 2014, this October in Milan, Italy.
Two authors from this site will be speaking there, and here’s what they’ll be speaking on:
Open Source Backends
There are many backend providers. Some are open source and they are actually not that complex to set up and get acquainted with.
In this presentation Cesare will provide an overview of the main open source backends. For each we will walk through the technology they are based on, their setup process, the features they support and the SDKs they include. The goal is to get to know better the twinkling ecosystem of open source backends that is constantly growing everyday.
Getting Started with BaasBox
BaasBox is an open source back end that allows you quickly building the talk-to-the-server part of your application. In this workshop you will learn how to use BaasBox’s iOS SDK and its features.
Sprite Kit Workshop
Marin Todorov held a Sprite Kit 101 presentation at the first Pragma Mark conference in 2013; that was less than a month after Sprite Kit was officially released! It was a mix of introduction to Sprite Kit and a live demo of building an Angry Birds clone in 20 minutes. The audience enjoyed this session so much that this year Pragma Mark has invited Marin Todorov for a half a day workshop on Sprite Kit and Swift!
The workshop is guaranteed to be lots of fun, there will be challenges for the ninjas in the audience, and of course Sprite Kit swag to win. If you don’t believe it – just ask people who were there last year :]
