This talk will start with a short history of Scout and its origins followed by an introduction to the architecture of a typical Scout application and a practical use case of it’s use in an actual project. We then explain the multi-frontent capability of Scout applications to run simultaneously on the desktop, in the browser, on a tablet and a smartphone. The talk concludes with a live demo to create a simple sample application.
