Sencha.ioThe maker of the front-end Javascript frameworks Ext JS and Sencha Touch, Sencha, has made available its cloud platform for beta testers. provides mobile web application developers with a set of cloud computing services that aid development and help overcome limitations of mobile devices.

The beta of consists of four services:

  • Data lets a mobile application store data on a mobile device and then sync it with the cloud, if available. This means that other users with access to that data will also be able to see and make changes to that data.
  • Messages allows mobile applications to send one-to-one or one-to-many messages.
  • Login handles registration and authentication to protect data.
  • Deployment is a service to allow deployment of mobile applications to the domain.

Developers can register at to create teams and download the SDK. offers similar services to Strobe, StackMob and Parse, but given that the Sencha Touch mobile application development framework has been available for some time and that Sencha has announced $15 million of funding, this may just propel Sencha to the forefront of HTML5 mobile development.

As a contract developer and manager I’ve worked in a wide range of enterprises in a variety of countries where I’ve encountered everything from great work, awful work, bizarre work, all the way down to quasi-legal work. If you think that you recognise your own organisation within my articles then you’re undoubtedly wrong, where you work isn’t that unique.
