Last Nights Meetup At Sencha HQ In RWC Excellent!


Last nights meetup at Sencha Headquarters in Redwood City with Jacky Nguyen presenting was excellent, and as usual very fun.  Jacky talked about tons of performance stuff related to the holy grail of 60 frames per second rendering and mobile sweetness. Sadly, I learned that my ping-pong skills are in total decay. Having slide a very far way from Dorm 5 champion at college, it feels like I’ve returned to rank beginner.  Very sad. Most of the usual suspects were there. View Full Album … Continue Reading

Sencha’s Architect’s Perfect Storm, Easy To Use and Incorporates Hand Written Code Gracefully


Introduction Wednesday night this week, our local meetup (happening at Sencha’s headquarters in Redwood City) is featuring the Sencha Architect engineers who are here from all over the world for a get together.  Personally, I’ve been using Sencha Architect (SA) for well over a year now and am hugely impressed.  Yesterday, for the first time I felt a need to go beyond what SA offered and for the first time decided to “override” an ExtJS object (store in this case) with my own code.  It’s now a trick I own!  Explanation of why we did it, what we did, and what to look out for if you do it yourself in the future.   Why We Did It As many of you know, in addition to being the primary organizer of Silicon Valley Code … Continue Reading
