Staying DRY with YUI

A session at YUIConf 2013

  • William Seo

Wednesday 6th November, 2013

11:30am to 12:00pm (PST)

This tech talk is about how a team of two engineers built all of Talentral, a complex, rich, feels-like-desktop webapp. Everyone knows about DRY, but how is it done in practice with YUI? This is our story about how using YUI + YUI Gallery enables us to focus on high-leverage tasks at a fast-paced startup when the temptations to write quick-and-dirty solutions surface at every corner. We'll walk through several examples of how we evaluated existing YUI modules (not just UI widgets, but also behaviors and patterns) and then decided to roll our own custom YUI modules (we've written 10, to date) in good OO-JS fashion to stay faithful to the YUI ecosystem (elegant, DRY, maintainable, community friendly) instead of succumbing to the FrankenJS approach that is so prevalent in today's JS landscape.
