  • Frameworks.next: How Faster Browser Evolution Will Change How We Think

    by Alex Russell

    Dojo provides a stable, dependable, best-you-can-get solution for designers and developers who want flexibility, performance, reach, and fewer headaches down the road. Mobile is starting to challenge some of the assumptions that makes it possible for to deliver these attributes in a single codebase, and new frameworks are emerging to fill the gaps created by new constraints -- better standards support on average, different network latencies, different form factors, etc.

    This talk explores how language, platform, and market evolution will change the dynamic further and faster, allowing the Dojo community to consider new approaches...if we can muster the will to get out in front of it.

  • Dojo Web Builder - Building Dojo in the Cloud

    by James Thomas

    Dojo's build system has long been one of the the toolkit's greatest, but least understood, features. Using the build system properly dramatically improves the performance of your application!

    However.... Fiddling about with shell scripts? Needing to download the full source distribution? Understanding long READMEs and cryptic profile files? Manually categorising your application dependencies?

    Pffft, not any more! Using the newly launched Dojo Web Builder you can ignore all of the above and just your web browser.

  • Can Stephen Hawking use your Dojo App

    by Becky Gibson

    Let's face it, not everyone has the same abilities. Folks with vision or mobility impairments want to use Web applications, too! The core widget set of Dojo is fully accessible to people who rely on the keyboard or assistive technologies like a screen reader to interact with the Web. Your mission is to learn how to make your Dojo apps accessible. Your assigned agent will decode the mysteries of ARIA and will demo a fully accessible Dojo app! Accept the challenge to make the Web inclusive for all!

  • The Power of Promises

    by Brian Arnold

    The Dojo Deferred is something that a lot of people use, due to its inclusion as part of the XHR system, but it's not something that a lot of people really understand. In this talk, we'll cover the distinctions between a Deferred and a promise, as well as ways to use them for so much more than simple XHR work.
