Talk Description: 

An overview of the capabilities of the Ecere cross-platform SDK and eC language, and a walk-through to building an application that can ultimately be deployed on multiple desktop, mobile and web platforms.

An introduction to the new bindings for multiple programming languages (including C, C++ and Python), and our tool to automatically generate them from an arbitrary eC library (positioning eC as a great language to build a high-performance multi-platform API).

A look at ECON, a superset of JSON with additional support for type specifiers, hexadecimal numbers, and more, which so happens to be directly compatible with the eC instantiation syntax.

Learn about the eC programming language, a superset of C offering object-oriented constructs, properties, reflection and dynamic modules while keeping native performance and maintaining C compatibility.

Learn about the Ecere IDE, a full-featured Integrated Development Environment capable of managing cross-compilers and with a powerful build system able to generate self-sufficient cross-platform Makefiles.
