[prMac.com] Montreal, Canada - The WebObjects Community Association and BoxOffice Tickets are delighted to announce 2010's WOrld-wide WebObjects Developer's Conference (WOWODC 2010), the annual conference dedicated to WebObjects, Apple's enterprise-class web application development framework. WebObjects is a powerful, elegant, and proven web application framework that doesn't trade agility for scalability or elegance for capability. WebObjects is Cocoa for the web, CoreData for the enterprise.
The past few years have seen substantial new development surrounding WebObjects, one of Apple's most mature and time-tested technologies. Its behind-the-scenes roll in the iTunes music store and the App Store have driven development both by Apple and the global WebObjects community, bringing substantial updates to existing functionality and dramatic new features that keep WebObjects on the cutting edge of internet-enabled application development. Don't get left behind.
"This is our fifth conference, and it has been a great success with increasing attendance and more and more sessions every time! WOWODC is THE place to learn about WebObjects development." says Pascal Robert, event organizer and Steering Committee member.
This three-day event will be held on August 27th, 28th and 29th in Montreal (Canada) at the Hotel Gouverneur Place Dupuis. Sessions and Hands-On Labs will be led by WebObjects experts from around the world. Covering subjects ranging from the WebObjects IDE (Eclipse-based WOLips) to advanced scalability and performance tuning.
Breakfast, lunch and snack breaks, including beverages will be served each day with evening social activities also scheduled.
All sessions will be recorded and provided to attendees. Non-attendees may also purchase the recordings.
Join us for 3 days of education, discussion and networking hosted by the WebObjects community's leading experts!
