(Paid) : A Front-End Engineering Conference

  • Date: Wed, 9 Jul 9:00am – 1:00pm
  • Location: 5th Floor, A-Wing, MCCIA, ICC Towers, SB Road

Web is very big, beyond the capacity of any one person to comprehend it. Started out as a simple document sharing platform, it rapidly became the communication standard for the world. Static content was replaced by dynamic content. What once were simple websites, are now replaced by complex web applications. Web is not one single technology. It is a mix of hardware, networks, protocols and lots more. However, one aspect of web did not receive the attention as it should have. That one aspect is the User Interface. Other than handful of computer engineers, web is being used by billions of people without having any formal knowledge of computer science. For these users, web is one black box that does things magically. All they have is access to web front-end in the form of websites and web applications. But still, front-end did not get deserved attention. But there were few who gave their energy and efforts to keep the front-end revolution moving. And <web/F> is one such non-sponsored and non-profit effort to keep that revolution going.

What does <web/F> mean?

We focus only on front-end part of web. That is why ‘web-slash-f’ or simply <web/F>. It is our fundamental belief that building a user interface is not as easy as it is general assumed to be. Just like any other software engineering activity, building a better user interface is software engineering process. It needs a discipline, clear thought, future vision and caring attitude towards users. That is why we call it front-end engineering.

And finally it is not about building interfaces, it is about crafting interfaces.

(Nominal Fees) Breakfast with @TiEPune: How start-ups can partner with SAP to transform their business

  • Date: Thu, 10 Jul 8:30am – 10:30am
  • Location: 5th Floor, A-Wing, MCCIA, ICC Towers, SB Road

TiE Pune Breakfast session – on How start-ups can partner with SAP to transform their customer’s business & achieve breakthrough growth

IT software companies face the classical dilemma of make v/s buy – that is, engineer their entire products inhouse, or pick certain relevant portions from leading technology / platform vendors. Building inhouse entails long development cycles, and often the market has moved by the time the product is ready. By partnering with SAP, such companies can not only speed up their Go to market, but also leverage SAP’s brand and leading technologies in Big Data, Mobility, Analytics & Cloud to enter markets and rapidly build transformational solutions for their customers. This session will share some examples of the work SAP’s partners are doing with customers – large & small – across the world, and offer new routes to market for partnering with SAP.

Pune Cocoa Meetup: Understanding Bonjour and Peer-to-Peer networking

  • Date: Sat, 12 Jul 3:00pm – 5:00pm
  • Location: Synerzip (3rd Floor, Revolution Mall, next to City Pride, Kothrud, Pune)

Apple’s Bonjour is a “zero configuration network” (Zeroconf) multicast Domain Naming System (mDNS) protocol used by Apple devices to enable the automatic and easy discovery of computers, devices, and services on IP networks. Bonjour (like other multicast services like Avahi and Microsoft’s UPnP) uses industry standard IP protocols to allow devices to automatically discover each other without the need to enter IP addresses or configure DNS servers. The elegance of this approach is that it brings simplicity and ease-of- use to the users of network devices and services. Eliminating the need to set up services such as Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol, DNS, and DNS Service Directory, Bonjour enables each device to continuously publish and discover services. By broadcasting Bonjour service messages, printers, servers, and other shared devices can advertise the services they offer. Client devices then monitor Bonjour advertisements and connect to the appropriate servers, as with any other service. The protocol also allows for a device to request services (Service Discovery) on the network as well as respond to incoming requests, which in some cases means a single device can be both a client and a server at the same time. The automatic discovery makes it easy for clients like iPads and Macbooks to easily use a printer using AirPrint or mirror a display to a projector using AirPlay
