  • Changing the game with dgrid

    by Chris Barrett

    In this session I will talk about dgrid, the new open source project living in the Dojo Foundation.
    We will cover why we decided to write it, why you should use it, how it works, and how to work with it. We will cover performance gains, how it is easier to work with than other grids that shall not be named, use-cases, its plug-ins and more in this talk about the best grid to hit Dojo yet.

    At 10:00am to 10:45am, Wednesday 4th April

  • dojox.gfx, the foundation for your cross-browser visualization needs

    by Patrick Ruzand

    This talk will present Gfx, the Dojo Toolkit 2d graphics api and how it can be leveraged for advanced visualization.

    We will first introduce the library and how it works under the hood ; then we will explain the API and its capabilities in details through many examples and scenarii, to finally introduce several real-life examples of advanced visualizations built on top of gfx (components like charting, maps or diagram, or extensions like layout manager) on desktop and mobile environments.

    At 11:00am to 12:00pm, Wednesday 4th April

  • dojox.gfx: what's next, after and later...

    by Patrick Ruzand

  • eventd - simulated synthetic events

    by Chris Barrett

    Make unit testing cool again (was it ever?) with eventd, a new tool written in JavaScript to be used with the DOH unit testing framework. eventd uses synthetic events to keep all your unit test writing in JavaScript as well as having more browser support than doh.robot.
    See how to use eventd with doh in this presentation, and how it can make your unit tests more complete and reusable.

    At 2:00pm to 2:30pm, Wednesday 4th April

  • Lessons we can learn and carry with us from the Dojo Toolkit.

    by samfosteriam

    I'll discuss recent experiences developing without Dojo and those aspects of it I missed most (and ended up porting), and extrapolate a javascript nirvana of standalone, interoperable modules that blur the boundaries of today's libraries.

    At 2:30pm to 3:00pm, Wednesday 4th April
