  • Mojito for YUI Developers

    by Caridy Patino

    We use YUI on the daily basis in a form of building blocks, but when it comes to boilerplating our projects, we are on our own. Mojito provides a unique opportunity for YUI developers to speed up the development process by providing boilerplate and building capabilities for YUI projects by offering a variety of options to build traditional YUI web apps, mobile apps to deploy on devices, and Node.JS applications as well. It does it by leveraging YUI Library and YUI Tool chains to build at scale.

    Speaker Bio:

    Caridy Patino is a Bartender at Yahoo! Mojito Team and advocacy for YUI, Mojito and Yahoo! Cocktails in general. Aside from that, he is also Principal Engineer at Yahoo! Search where he writes awesome Javascript code that is suppose to run everywhere!

  • Writing for Developers: Some Rational Techniques

    by Evan Ghoul-er

    So you've written a shiny new Gallery module... now you've got to explain how to use it. Selleck and YUIDoc are powerful tools, but they don't write your docs for you. In this talk we'll demonstrate *how* to be clear, using logical principles for breaking down and organizing prose at the micro level. Above all, we'll talk about how to avoid bad advice and focus on what matters. This is the stuff your college writing instructors should have taught you, but probably didn't.

    Speaker Bio:

    Evan Goer has been at Yahoo! since 2005. He is the author of the YUI 3 Cookbook, published by O'Reilly Media.

  • Using YUI to Tackle Video

    by Ryan Cannon

    The NFL serves millions of videos every week to football fans around the world. The modern video landscape encompasses a wide range of supported formats and platforms--from high-quality multi-bitrate Flash to live streaming in HTML5. Ryan Cannon provides a deep-dive into how the NFL leverages YUI to provide a rich, trackable, and monetizable video experience to its users regardless of device.

    Speaker Bio:

    Ryan Cannon claims to be a mild-mannered manager of application development for the NFL, but that façade is a thin veneer over the information scientist, gamer and unabashed nerd that lurks beneath. He fled the midwest in 2007 for the temperate clime of Los Angeles, CA where he lives with his wife Jill.
