Microsoft was using EventBoard Mobile for managing their TechDays conference in Sweden. My role included the integration of their conference data to their website, which was on the Orchard CMS platform and used Sencha ExtJS to provide a modern experience for their attendees.
In my previous post, I showed how to build a mobile web app using jQuery Mobile. Its use of HTML5 data attributes and CSS classes made it pretty straightforward, especially if you are used to building regular websites. The architecture of your mobile website would have to be based on the server-side though, whether this be ASP.NET MVC, PHP, Ruby, etc. Then I came across Sencha Touch which changes this mentality to a more progressive approach… client-side applications!
With mobile getting all the love lately, I thought I would give back to the desktop community. I showed how to build a mobile web app using Sencha Touch 2 and MVC. Now I will do the same with a desktop web app using Ext JS.
