  • Node.js + YUI 3

    by Dav Glass

    YUI 3 and Node.js, working together, help us fully realize the promise of progressive enhancement (and a lot of other cool stuff). Dav will be showing how it's done and what's possible using these powerful tools together.

  • Porting Flickr to YUI 3 — Lessons in Performance

    by Ross Harmes

    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.

  • YUI 3 & NodeJS for JavaScript View Rendering on Client or Server

    by Matthew Taylor

    The premise of this idea is to enable data to be translated into HTML either on the browser or the server. The only way to do this on the browser is with JavaScript, so we must have JavaScript on the server as well. Good thing we have NodeJS. Most web application frameworks have some type of templating engine that accepts two things: (1) data, (2) template, and returns HTML to be assembled into an HTTPResponse. But what if we could take the browser-side JavaScript function that handles the XHR response data and run it on the server? With the nodejs-yui3 module, we can!

    Recommended prerequisite: Node.js + YUI 3 / Dav Glass.

  • 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.
