  • Cross-platform mobile apps with jQuery Mobile

    by Mike Bobiney

    jQuery is the hugely popular JavaScript framework that powers almost half of the top ten thousand most visited websites. You’ll learn how you can use these everyday web technologies to create compelling mobile experiences for your visitors while still supporting older devices. We’ll be covering topics such as navigational structure, layouts, toolbars and the all important list view. But just building a mobile site will only get you so far. You’ll also learn techniques to improve your page load times and tips to roll your own theme with style sheets and icons to help your apps stand out from the crowd.

  • Organized Javascript with Backbone.js

    by Joe Fiorini

    Is your codebase well organized and easy to maintain? Is your Javascript less so? Disorganized Javascript is expensive. It makes bugs hard find and even harder to fix, leads to new features taking longer to build and causes slow performance in browsers. It has always been difficult to keep Javascript organized. Until now. Backbone.js allows any developer to organize code in a familiar MVC architecture without being a Javascript expert. It uses the best parts of the Javascript language to respond to user interaction and interact with the server. This talk will focus on learning Backbone.js through real code samples from a production application before and after implementing Backbone.js. The audience will leave this talk knowing how to incrementally replace their existing Javascript with Backbone.js.
