Appian World 2012 – Developer Track

Appian is glad to offer a dedicated developer track for this years Appian World 2012 conference that will feature in-depth discussions and presentations for technical developers.

We will be kicking off our first session with a presentation by one of our platinum sponsors, Amazon Web Services featuring CJ Moses, the Deputy Chief Information Security Officer for Amazon Web Services.  CJ has a distinguished career in federal government security and law enforcement.  He will be presenting on Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud Security, a topic that is highly relevant to Appian users.  AWS is Appian’s strategic partner for infrastructure powering our Appian Cloud offering, which is increasingly the deployment option of choice for Appian customers.

Next, our Appian Services team will be covering “Agile Development Best Practices”.  Agile development is a key deployment methodology for achieving rapid results with the Appian BPM Suite.  Our services team has built up over a century of combined experience that they will be sharing to ensure your project can setup a successful agile development methodology.

Our Tuesday Developer Track sessions will kick-off with “Best Practices in Mobile BPM”.  Again, presented by Appian Services, this session will explore one of the greatest areas of interest by our customer base.  As mobile devices gain in power and popularity, Mobile BPM is rapidly becoming a high priority to deliver access to key processes from anywhere in the world.  We will be showing how to properly setup, design, and deploy an effective Mobile BPM solution with the Appian BPM Suite.

After Mobile BPM, we will be providing a session on “Extending the Appian Platform with Plug-ins”.  Plug-ins in Appian have been a extremely powerful capability for customers to safely extend the Appian platform with entirely new capabilities.  Utilizing a standard OSGi framework, our plug-in architecture is available for both on-premise and cloud customers.  We highly encourage all developers to attend this session to learn this important element of the Appian BPM Suite.

Finally, we’ll be wrapping up with an in-depth view of what Appian has in-store for the future.  I’ll be hosting this session along with other members of the Appian Technology team to highlight key feature developments and answer any questions from the audience.

Of course, while not attending the developer sessions, we have many case study presentations, panel discussions and networking opportunities lined up.  For a detailed schedule of events, check-out the Appian World 2012 agenda.  In addition, please do not forget about our Wednesday Post-Conference Training sessions.  These will be half-day training classes covering important and popular topics for Appian developers.

We look forward to seeing you in April.
