  • The State of the jQuery Project

    by Ralph Whitbeck

    In this talk you will learn how the jQuery project is structured, from the jQuery Board to our membership in the Software Freedom Conservancy. We’ll cover the state of jQuery Core, jQuery UI and jQuery Mobile and get a glimpse of what might be coming in the near future. We’ll also look at some of the other projects that are being worked on by the jQuery team.

  • jQuery Mobile Keynote

    by Todd Parker

    Get the scoop on how to use jQuery Mobile to build dynamic HTML5-based web sites and apps that work on all popular mobile platforms from Todd Parker, project lead.

    We'll cover the basics of how to use the framework, advanced tips and tricks, new features, and take a look into of the project's strategy and future roadmap to see how we will embrace principles of responsive design to create compelling experiences that span smartphone, tablet and even desktop devices from a unified codebase.

    At 10:40am to 11:25am, Friday 10th February

  • Web vs. Apps

    by Ben Galbraith and Dion Almaer

    Today’s browsers sport amazing capabilities, truly graduating from markup renderers to sophisticated app run-times. We're sure to see some amazing new web applications just over the horizon that take advantage of these new capabilities.

    At the same time, the mobile ecosystem is white hot and we’re seeing a range of start-ups pursue an "app-only" strategy. What relationship do mobile “apps” have with the web and how will these two communities co-exist into the future? Also, how do developers target all of these different platforms? Which should they embrace and which should they ignore?

    Join Ben and Dion as they explore these issues.

    At 11:45am to 12:30pm, Friday 10th February

  • Embracing and celebrating redundancy

    by Christian Heilmann

    JavaScript was always the language to make the web more interactive and fill the gaps that browsers had when it comes to interaction with the user.

    With jQuery we moved even further and concentrated on that task, replacing the unwieldy native DOM with a simpler way to spice up our web sites. With browsers moving ahead it is time though to reflect and see just how much code we write that actually is not needed any longer as browsers give us native controls in HTML5.

    In this talk Chris Heilmann of Mozilla will show just in how many ways modern browsers make it easy for us to offer a rich experience without having to create that on our own. We'll look at UI elements, multimedia capabilities, drawing, animation and how to tie into our user's browsing and web behaviour without forcing a certain path on them.

    We have amazing technology to play with, we should use it and look ahead instead of patching for the past.

    At 2:15pm to 2:45pm, Friday 10th February

  • App development stack for JS developers

    by Paul Irish

    The challenge for webapp developers is scaling the experience to delight users, while simultaneously scaling the application code to provide speed, modularity, and power.

    All the while, the client side costs per kilobyte loom.

    In this talk, we dive into what comprises the modern webapp client side stack: tools, frameworks, and architecture patterns.

    At 3:35pm to 4:05pm, Friday 10th February
