One of the coolest things about organizing tracks at ASUG events is the quality face time with new contacts as well as with long-time collaborators. At the end of Tuesday’s session on Mobilizing Business Processes, Louenas Hamdi of SAP Labs (business card) was having technical difficulties with sharing a couple demos that were either Windows Media files or Quicktime clips, to the point that we froze the projection screen totally on a grey rectangle. I shared a few tips I’ve learned projecting media (Terry Tate anyone?) in conference situations.
A few clips that SAP Labs is working on can’t be shared, but Louenas and Jan Fetzer agreed that this clip is cleared for public consumption. The usual caveats apply to this media, in that this is not necessarily a working product currently available, your mileage may vary, etc.
The context is that developers want to build and deploy applications for mobile devices in a GUI, with little coding, and have the app run on a variety of devices. In about 2 minutes, you’ll see what I mean.
- MobileWeaver Ajax Composer
- Building partner search widget
- Database element configuration
- Drag, drop and relate design experience
- Webservice toolkit use deployment
- Quick app mockup
- Rotating device display – multivendor support agnosticism
Silent movie (clip is 640×480/~5MB, so patience is recommended for WAN links):
Later, Louenas did some calendar math and was surprised to learn I am the same age as his father. I just smiled.
