  • jQuery & Performance Script Loading

    by James Burke and Kyle

    Kyle Simpson, creator of LABjs, and James Burke, creator of RequireJS, will team up to cover asynchronous script loading and dependency management in-depth, hoping to dispel misconceptions and myths about this complicated topic, providing you with practical knowledge and techniques. We'll explain the different features of LABjs and RequireJS, respectively, and help compare and contrast their strengths and weaknesses for various use cases.

    From simple client-side loading of jQuery and plugins to a complete build-time dependency management solution on your server, this talk will give you rock-solid script loading approaches you can implement immediately in your own jQuery projects.

    At 3:00pm to 4:00pm, Wednesday 17th November

  • Functionality-Focused Code Organization

    by Rebecca Murphey

    The magic of jQuery’s CSS-based selection makes it easy to think about our code in terms of the DOM, and sometimes that approach is exactly right. Other times, though, what we’re trying to accomplish is only tangentially related to our nodes, and opting for an approach where we think in terms of functionality — not how that functionality is manifested on our page — can pay big dividends in terms of flexibility. In this talk, we’ll look at a small sample application where the DOM takes a back seat to functionality-focused modules, and see how the approach can change the way we write and organize our code.

    At 5:00pm to 5:00pm, Wednesday 17th November
