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.
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.
