Developer Ignite is an information exchange event for software developers to connect and share topics that are of interest to them. Since this is a technical event, topics will be centered on relevant and important information to software developers. For more information on Ignite, please take a look at the O'Reilly Ignite site.
Barry Stahl: Simplicity Through Abstraction
The goal of this presentation is to explore, at a very high level, one methodology for software developers and architects to create software that is simple and maintainable, and thus has a lower total-cost-of-ownership (TCO).
Ben Atkin: jQuery Plugin Development
Bill Mar: Beagleboard and Spark Community Projects
My presentation is "Beagleboard and Spark Community Projects" to tell the story of how the Beagleboard community project got started and how I and some other people got Microsoft Windows Embedded into the act with free tools for the hobbyist/startup community.
Bret Feddern: What You Don't Know About ColdFusion Will Knock You on Your A$$
Most of the Developers and Companies I come across are Ruby on Rails, or PHP, or .NET, and they use WordPress, Joomla, or SharePoint, etc. Few know the true potential behind ColdFusion and what CF has to offer. With my 5 minutes, I will give an overview of just how awesome CF is and why other developers in the area should be more open to it.
Brian Shaler: Physical Computing With Arduino
As a software developer with no background in electrical engineering, physical computing was always a little out of my reach. Thanks to Arduino -- the exciting open source hardware-firmware-software platform -- the barrier to entry for software developers has been lowered significantly. Within minutes, you can be interacting with real world inputs (sensors) and outputs (LEDs, servos, etc).
Chris Chandler: Cryptography
We use RSA and AES all the time, but what makes them tick? What are the other options? Why should we care? The storage, transmission, and management of sensitive data usually requires that it is enciphered. This is a 5 minute presentation on cryptographic algorithms and key management.
Evo Terra: Get Out of Your Cube!
In the last 3 years, Phoenix has seen the creation and expansion of several community-based social groups and activities that are "developer-friendly". Real people getting together in real life to talk, drink, listen, learn and generally have loads of fun. These formal and informal "meetups" take place all over the valley and each have their own charm. In this talk, I'll talk about many and point you into the direction where you can find more!
remi Taylor: You're Doing it Wrong!
You're doing it wrong and you should be ashamed of yourself! If you're not testing your code, your clients should fire you. If you're not test-driving your code, your co-workers should set you on fire!
Saul Mora: CSS3 + HTML5 = Awesome
CSS + HTML is how the web works. Let's go over, not just the cool features of CSS3 + HTML5, but why they will be awesome for future web development.
Scott Cate: Version Numbering your Software
Version Numbering your software. Does this even matter? Are version numbers used more than just to later identify what version a file is? Well in our world it matters deeply. We'll spend five minutes talking about how source control, an automated build environment, and an integrated version "labeler" can better your software management process.

Developer Ignite will always be free to both presenters and attendees. This event is sponsored by the Intel Developer Zone, a community where developers can learn about and engage in topics that are relevant to their career, professional development and hobbies. The venue is provided by Gangplank, a co-working environment for web professionals. If there is something you don't like about the way Developer Ignite works, and want to change it, please let us know. We'll listen, but can't promise to accommodate every request.
