A look at how Flickr converted from YUI 2 to YUI 3, and in the process, reduced load times by 80%. We'll examine the unforeseen consequences that can arise from following performance guidelines and porting your site to YUI 3, and how to overcome them. We'll also discuss what performance metrics matter on a page where everything is deferred.

HTML5 is the first major revision to the web's lingua franca in over 10 years and disrupting web development as we know it.
In this presentation Tantek illuminates what makes HTML5 both easier and more powerful, which HTML5 features are ready now, roughly usable, unfortunately ugly, or worthy of web application experiments. HTML5 is also a work in progress - learn how by using it and providing feedback, anyone can help shape this important update to the foundation of the web.
Recommended prerequisite: Node.js + YUI 3 / Dav Glass.
