  • Patterns for Organizing Non-Trivial JavaScript Applications

    by Rebecca Murphey

    In the bad old days of JavaScript, our days were spent fighting through a thicket of DOM differences. These days, we've pretty much conquered those challenges thanks to tools such as jQuery, but our new challenge is figuring out how to adapt as more and more of our application logic moves from the server to the client. We have great tools like Backbone, Ember, Knockout, and more, but in order to use them effectively, we need to do more than learn their APIs -- we need to learn to think about our code beyond the DOM-centric ways of the past. In this talk, I'll look at useful patterns for thinking about client-side a12pplication development that will help you avoid creating a tangled mess of code.

  • Mind The Gap

    by Julien Gachadoat

    With the rise of online applications, Javascript has got much attention for the past few years from browser vendors. Its combination with native graphic interfaces (WebGL, canvas) has offered a whole new playground for people using code as a creative tool. Meanwhile Javascript has stepped out the browser and has made its way to creative environments such as Openframeworks or Cinder, linking the power of desktop applications and the flexibility of scripting. Through examples and initiatives, we will see how Javascript has become an important tool in the creative coding scene.

  • HTML5 JavaScript on Crack

    by Kyle Simpson

    One of the most exciting aspects of HTML5 is the addition of many helpful and powerful JavaScript API's. Some are attached to presentational elements (<canvas>, <video>, etc), and others are deeply rooted in JavaScript developer land (localStorage, Web Workers, etc). This talk will explore various advanced JavaScript API's in the context of how to weave them all together into a multi-player web-based game. Topics include: <canvas>, History API, localStorage/sessionStorage, appCache, Web Sockets, Local Files, Web Workers.

    At 4:30pm to 5:00pm, Thursday 26th April

  • CSS in the 4th Dimension: Not Your Daddy's CSS Animations

    by Lea Verou

    CSS2.1 was two dimensional: There was no concept of depth or time. CSS3 brings us some control over both, with transitions and animations for the latter. In this talk we will start from the basics of these new specifications, but will quickly move to more advanced tips and tricks to fully leverage these exciting technologies. The talk will follow Lea’s trademark presentation style with live code examples, that has been praised by audiences all over Europe.

    At 5:00pm to 5:30pm, Thursday 26th April

  • The Web is the Platform—Mozilla's mobile OS

    by Zbigniew Braniecki

    The mobile landscape is so hot these days. With laser pointers on a forehead, it is the place where both, the companies that missed the web revolution and the ones that surfed on its weave, rush to secure their slice and defend it. But in the light of what the Open Web has accomplished over last years, turning the Web into diverse, vibrant and innovative ecosystem, the technology stack offered on the mobile is depressing. Proprietary APIs, locked down platforms and users, exclusive app markets, developer entry barriers and non-hackable source code. Can we do better? You bet :)
