  • YUI for Designers

    by Jeff Pihach

    Many designers think that jQuery is the best, easiest, and only way to add javascript enhancements to their pages. This talk is to show how easy it is to add the same functionality and more using YUI 3's core and gallery modules. It will briefly discuss the basic structure of YUI 3 and its gallery system then move into recipie based code and examples for the most widely used enhancements to show that YUI isn't as difficult as they thought.

  • Demystifying Loader: Advanced Module Configuration

    by Jeff Craig

    Loader is at the core of every YUI application and pattern. It is one of two parts of YUI that if you were to remove it, what you'd have would no longer be YUI. And yet, it is one of the less understood components within the library. In this talk, I'll be covering in depth how to configure Loader using its more advanced options, from module groups to conditional loading.

    Intended audience: Intermediate Users.

  • YUI Dial Widget: A New Breed of UI Input Control

    by Jeff Conniff

    The Dial widget is a circular value input control. It's like a real-world, analog volume control dial, but with much finer UI control. Have you ever needed a slider with a 2000 unit range, wanted 1 unit accuracy, but didn't have 2000 pixels of real estate for a slider? The Dial widget is made for cases like this.

    What you'll learn from this talk:

    1. Compare and contrast the Dial control features to other UI input controls such as sliders, spinners.

    2. See compelling (and visually tasty) examples of Dial solutions to UI challenges.

    3. How to implement one in your code.

    4. Explore the Dial attributes.
