Developing mobile applications or widgets requires a completely different approach than traditional platforms. Mobile applications should be personal and to-the-point. Glowe provides the technology to build platform-independent mobile widgets in a simple and fast way. This presentation positions Glowe as technology and was meant as introduction to a hands-on lab. Visit http://www.glowe.org for more info.

  8. 8. Software : the old way
  9. 9. Software : the old way  Due to the steep learning curve of traditional software development, the person with the application idea is unlikely to be a “coder”.  This results in a relatively small set of applications that tend to target large audiences.  High complexity leads to high prices in a low-margin business
  10. 10. Mobile Software: the old way  Not Cross-platform (except J2ME to some extend).  Medium to very high entry level.  Distribution is difficult.
  11. 11. Introducing Glowe Glowe defines a format for describing applications. Glowe applications run inside a runtime environment (or engine) making them platform independent. Glowe applications describe the flow of information. Glowe applications are made by linking building blocks. DataReader DataFilter VisualDataTemplate “http://slashdot.org/...” Filter=“.rdf:RDF:item”
  12. 12. Software: the Glowe way Mobile applications are about bringing the right information to the user and allowing communication in a user-friendly way. So the Glowe way of developing applications focuses on :  Information  Communication  Presentation
  13. 13. Software: the Glowe way Technical details: - Simple, open XML format - Editable in Notepad (or vi ) - 1 application = 1 file - A pre-defined set of building blocks - Multi-platform ready: - Mobile - Web - Embedded - You’ll score with the ladies
  14. 14. Glowe Building Blocks The Glowe way of application development offers building blocks to “build” instead of “code” information centric applications. There are building blocks available for - Retrieving information - Reformatting information - Combining information streams - Pushing information back into the cloud - Displaying information in a rich mobile interface - Interacting with the user
  15. 15. Current status  First (actually second) draft of specification public.  (XML based) Widget editor with device emulator.  Windows Mobile (5+6)  J2ME client  Flash web client  TV Client (Media Center)
