  • When Not To Use YUI

    by Ryan Grove

    In this talk I'll provide code samples and real-world anecdotes to illustrate how to decide when to use YUI, when to use vanilla JavaScript, when to consider other libraries, and what the tradeoffs are in terms of performance and maintainability. Advice will range from simple rules of thumb to more nuanced discussion of complex architectural decisions, with examples drawn from my time working on YUI at Yahoo! and using YUI at SmugMug.

    Speaker bio:

    Ryan Grove is a Sorcerer at SmugMug. Before he joined SmugMug, he worked on YUI at Yahoo!, where he helped build yuilibrary.com and wrote components like Model, ModelList, View, and AutoComplete. He hails from drizzly Portland, Oregon, where the dream of the 90s is still very much alive.

  • Write Code That Works

    by Reid Burke

    Whatever you're making, you're paid to make sure it works. If you're starting a new project, improving an existing one, and especially if you're testing JavaScript in a web browser, you'll appreciate learning the place of testing when you're writing code that works.

  • Secure Coding with YUI

    by Bishan

    In this largely demo oriented talk, we will present both common and not so common security issues arising out of unsafe YUI coding. We will analyze real world vulnerable examples. Followed with code examples, on the right way to secure those with YUI. We will also focus on good security patterns that can eliminate a number of frontend vulnerabilities we see today, for instance, the effectiveness of auto escaping templating engines in defending against various cases of XSS, a.k.a Cross Site Scripting.

    Speaker Bio:

    Bishan is a web security engineer at Yahoo. He is a frequent speaker at International security and developer conferences. Amongst others, he has spoken at NullCon, c0c0n, Great Indian Developer Summit, OSI, Security Byte and ClubHack. At Yahoo, he helps engineers develop secure and defensible web apps. Both Albert and Bishan have contributed towards making YUI secure in its 3.5.0 release, and have also reported security issues on examples at YUI website.

  • Security Testing of YUI Powered Applications

    by Albert Kin-Ying Yu and Dmitri Savintsev

    Everyone agrees that application security is of crucial importance, and attacks on web frontends are getting more frequent, sophisticated, and dangerous. Yet the area of security testing of frontend and YUI-based applications has so far received little attention. This talk highlights the need to embed security testing in the standard repertoire of every Javascript and YUI developer, alongside with functionality and performance tests. We will emphasize the security testing as part of development workflow - writing and running tests alongside creating the code. Our main goal is to attract the YUI community's attention to this grey area and start a discussion and cooperation of webappsec and YUI worlds.

    Speaker Bios:

    Dmitry (@dimisec, github.com/dmitris) started his Yahoo career a few days after the Y2K developing web applications such as Yahoo! Wallet in C++. After having successfully debugged hundreds of segfaults, he moved with the flow of the Web to PHP, Javascript, NodeJS and YUI. In the last 5 years, Dmitry is part of the Yahoo security team where he had a title equally unique at Yahoo and in the industry: European Paranoid. For his merciless dealing with security bugs, he got a nickname "Dmitrinator". He is responsible for the Yahoo internal XSS scanner used across the company. He held several talks at Yahoo Security Weeks and conducted security trainings for Yahoo developers across the globe. He lives in Munich, Germany.

    Albert (@yukinying) is a web security engineer at Yahoo, based out of the Hong Kong office. Part of his interest in terms of work here is to see how system could break. To some extent, "Alert" is his nickname to some Yahoos he worked with, for his notoriety with finding XSS bugs. He has been with Yahoo! for six years. He spent first year working as a software developer, service engineer and local paranoid. Then joined the security team full time. He believes, in today's changing times, if you are not moving fast, then you get owned.

  • Scaling YUI in the Enterprise

    by Kevin Lamping

    What happens when you unleash the power of YUI3 to an audience of 500+ developers in a large financial services company? To put it shortly, things break.
