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.

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.

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

Liferay's Nate Cavanaugh and Eduardo Lundgren will discuss the best practices they've learned in building and extending YUI3 components, ways to work with the grain of development and ways to form your own grain. This talk will cover topics such as how handle automatic binding and syncing of attributes for widgets, sharing skins across widgets, and optimizing your dependencies.

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.
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.
