Appcelerator is one of the fastest growing open source platforms for building rich web applications using a Service Oriented UI architecture.

This presentation will discuss the challenges and opportunities developers are faced with in the emerging area of building applications for a variety of different environments such as Web, Desktop and Mobile.

The presentation will focus on two key methodologies to assist in these challenges: Service Oriented UI (SOUI) architecture and Interactive Use Cases and how they play a key role in developing next generation rich applications.

The presentation will include a live demonstration of writing a simple application based on this architecture and methodology approach. All coding during the presentation will be done live and will show the ability to build an application using Appcelerator that attempts to solve the problems on building and deploying rich applications for different application environments.
