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.

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