Codestrong 2012 is over and my talk was awesome. As the masses flocked to the grand ballroom to hear me talk, I kindly played some Slipknot, Slayer, Helmet, and All That Remains for the crowd. They were ready to rock and so was I.
In my talk, I unveiled the Titanium CLI’s various commands and features. It was spectacular.
After 30 minutes of babbling, I switched gears to the command line for a live demo. I cut straight downloading and installing the CLI. That went smooth. Created a project and built it for iOS Simulator. No problems.
Then things went downhill. I switched to Titanium Studio to do a build using the old Python build scripts, but nothing happened. I’m talking no output, no errors, no nothing. I quickly gave up and resorted to manually running a build using the old Python build scripts and it throw a ton of errors. Ugh.
Later I found out that I just happened to stumble upon a bug in Studio with trying to compile Titanium apps created by the new CLI and imported into Studio.

Overall, not a single person said my talk sucked, so that’s pretty rad. People loved the prompt validation and the plugin system. They desperately want auto-completion and so do I.
Without further ado, I present my slides from my presentation:
