  • A Whirlwind Tour of AlloyUI Components in the YUI 3 Gallery

    by Nate Cavanaugh and Eduardo Lundgren

    In this talk, Liferay's Nate Cavanaugh and Eduardo Lundgren will walk through and give demos, explanations and code samples for the 60+ widgets, extensions and utilities that they were able to build on top of YUI 3, and how those modules help make development easier day to day.

  • TipTheWeb.org - Heavy Duty YUI 3 & YQL

    by Eric Ferraiuolo

    A look at TipTheWeb (with live demo action), digging into how we built our web application's rich UI on YUI 3 — the project-scale codebase, strategies developed, and YUI Gallery modules that came out of it. Followed up with a dive into TipTheWeb's advanced usage of YQL to process our most important data, URLs; making YQL the place where web service requests are made and data is gathered.

  • Creating Wow! web graphics with YUI extensions for SVG

    by Vincent Hardy

    This session demonstrates how YUI can be used with SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) to create rich, animated and interactive graphical effects. After showing examples from the svg-wow.org web site, the session will show in detail how the gallery-svg module for the YUI gallery can be used for simple examples (such as animating shape properties) to or more complex ones (such as morphing shapes or animating filter effects).

    At 11:45am to 12:45pm, Tuesday 9th November

  • Introducing YUI 3 AutoComplete

    by Ryan Grove

    An all-new AutoComplete widget is landing in YUI 3.3.0. In this talk, AutoComplete author Ryan Grove will take you on a whirlwind tour of some of the many autocomplete patterns it makes possible, as well as a deep dive into its powerful new YQL integration, filtering, and highlighting capabilities.

    At 11:45am to 12:45pm, Tuesday 9th November

  • Taxonomy of Touch

    by Nate Koechley

    You may now use direct manipulation for fun and profit. Finger replaces mouse. Direct replaces indirect. Users swipe, flick, pinch and tap where recently they clicked and clicked and clicked. And it's not just for phones anymore.

    But some things don't change: Complexity accumulates and must be engineered down. Idioms emerge and diverge, and standards must arise. Normalization is necessary and tooling is needed. As the new outcroppings of touch appear on the landscape, YUI will once again lend a hand, joining forces with us all to tackle these challenges in the service of our users. In this session we'll survey the current landscape of touch across multiple devices and use cases. We'll identify where patterns are emerging, where YUI is engaging, and where we can all get involved.

    At 1:45pm to 2:45pm, Tuesday 9th November

  • Finger Tips: Lessons Learned From Building a Touch-Based Experience

    by Mark Kawakami

    Creating a touch-based interface for devices like the iPad and iPhone is easy with YUI 3. But giving your users a truly great experience means paying attention to details such as finger size (they're big) or the speed of the devices (they're slow). Mark will share some of the lessons his team learned while adding touch support to Yahoo! Fantasy Sports, including tips like replacing "fancy" with "fancier" and the value of procrastination.

    At 3:00pm to 4:00pm, Tuesday 9th November

  • YUI Test

    by Nicholas C. Zakas

    JavaScript testing has grown by leaps and bounds over the past few years. When YUI Test was first introduced in 2007, it was just the first step in a long process of bringing test-driven development to the front end. YUI Test evolved with the release of YUI 3 to introduce mock objects as feedback indicated a need. As feedback continued to come in, YUI Test continued to evolve. Learn about the next version of YUI Test, how it makes testing any JavaScript code easier, and the brand new tools that allow you to integrate your testing into a continuous integration environment.

    At 3:00pm to 4:00pm, Tuesday 9th November

    by Anthony Pipkin

    Got an idea for a cool widget? Unsure of how to turn it into reality? Follow along as we cover the steps involved in creating a fully-featured YUI3 widget! Starting with in-line javascript; migrating it into a node plugin; going from a plugin to a widget; and finally adding advanced functionality via widget plugins with a quick pit-stop to run some tests.

  • Yeti: YUI's Easy Testing Interface

    by Reid Burke

    Testing cross-browser web applications has been too difficult for too long: You're either manually reloading browsers or struggling with complicated automation software. YUI changed all of that with Yeti.
    Yeti delivers your test results from any number of browsers with one command. Yeti requires no "driver" software—if you can navigate a browser to a web page, you're set—so it's ideal for mobile device testing.

    In this session, you'll learn when you should use automated testing, how Yeti works with YUI Test, how to setup cross-browser testing in minutes and how the YUI team uses Yeti to ship a better product.

    You'll also learn how Yeti itself, written in JavaScript, leverages Node.js to make it all possible.

    At 3:00pm to 4:00pm, Wednesday 10th November

  • "A phone, a tablet and a laptop walk into a bar..." - YUI's approach to mobile web development

    by Satyen Desai

    In this talk, Satyen will share YUI's approach to supporting the new set of web enabled devices on the market today, and how we'd like to think of them in terms of features and constraints as opposed to an isolated problem space.

    At 4:30pm to 5:30pm, Wednesday 10th November

  • YUI 3 Loading Strategies: A Yahoo! Search Case Study

    by Caridy Patino

    A robust loading strategy is one of the most important pieces when you think about optimization for high traffic websites. YUI Loader is a wonderful piece of software, and learning how to leverage it is a MUST-HAVE for YUI developers. Dynamic injections, controlling early user interactions, parallel downloads, preloading asssets, and window-iframe loading strategies are some of the topics that Caridy will cover in this presentation that examines Yahoo! Search as a case study.
