VIENNA, February 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Smart, Responsive, Mobile and Security - numerous guests at the experts conference for IT trends - Gentics CEO Meran: "Vienna the hot spot for IT innovation"
IT experts at first hand
As Mike West, security expert at Google, explained in his presentation, "the race against hackers cannot be won - they are numerous and are probably just as interested in stealing your data as you are in protecting it. It takes only a single mistake to make a website vulnerable to attack. Given that more and more application logic is moving to the browser, it's more important than ever to protect that layer of the application. Content Security Policy is an important step towards that goal and it is already supported in Chrome and Firefox."
Developer Patrick Lauke, one of the top speakers at the conference, focused on the topic of "Smart TV" and the development of Smart TV-Apps and web content for TV browsers: "When programming TV Apps, you should consider that the hardware you are dealing with is still at an early development stage (slow processors, limited storage) and needs rather conservative coding. Although TVs get updated constantly, it's unclear if we are going to see the predicted rise of TV-Apps in the near future."
Event host and moderator Haymo Meran, Chief Technical Officer of Gentics Software, was satisfied by the sold-out conference: "The overwhelming run to our web development conference shows the need for such an event in Austria. Web developers and their communities appreciate possibilities to exchange and talk about innovation at common platforms. My vision is to see Vienna as the new hot spot for IT innovation in central Europe. The first jQuery conference in Vienna is a good starting point and a contribution to this."
Technical exchange on all levels
Numerous web developers, IT enthusiasts, and heads of development departments of major Austrian companies joined the conference to follow the talks and hang out at Microsoft's main sponsor lounge. Netural, karriere.at and Full Stack also invited the 300 guests to know-how exchange. Besides personal chats during the coffee break and lunch, communication also took place on social media platforms like Twitter (Twitter (https://twitter.com/jqueryeurope), and highlights coming out of the conference were constantly posted and commented on by the attendees.
