@ajpiano Fixing These jQuery: A Guide To Debugging
10:20 – 11:00
HP webOS is a platform powering devices as diverse as the world's smallest smartphone, the HP
powering both applications and system services. This talk will highlight our next-generation JS
application framework, Enyo, and also look at how node.js is used to provide system services and
the same code everywhere seems like the obvious big win, along with the ease of writing
full-stack JS is awesome, but these aren't necessarily the reasons why. This talk will bust
some of the myths about full-stack JS development, and take a realistic look at the real
benefits of 'JS everywhere.'
@ECELonghorn jQuery Templates
The jQuery Templates plugin is a great way to help you reign in complex DOM updates and flexibly handle HTML returned from countless AJAX requests. I will cover samples of code based on production code used at Headspring and comment on the strengths and weaknesses of using jQuery templates.

@wycats The Road to SproutCore 2.0
As more and more applications are moving into the client-side, developers are looking for new abstractions that help eliminate repeated code and simplify the development of applications.
SproutCore's bindings make it easy to build an application with a focus on data, rather than reverse-engineering application state from the DOM. SproutCore 2.0 makes this possible with a small core library and optional build tools.
In this talk, Yehuda will cover the basics of the SproutCore architecture, and talk about the philosophy behind the radical improvements in SproutCore 2.0.
I will show a few demos of using CSS animations and how to provide similar non-animated options for browsers that do not support them.

@brianleroux Building PhoneGap Based Apps on OS X
Professional automation for PhoneGap based application development. Thats it. I'm going to teach you how to rockstar your next mobile project without hunting around a vendor IDE like a goof.
This will be a code heavy departure from the usual orgy of 4chan images and swearing you have come to expect from Brian. But if you think his talks are expletive laden normally just imagine him writing code!
@bentlegen Modern iFrame Programming
When you first think of iframes, you probably think of embedded YouTube videos and web forms. But iframes can do a lot more than just embed third-party content. As an inline, sandboxed DOM environment, the iframe is a powerful tool for communicating across domains, loading resources asynchronously, securing content, and more. In this talk we'll explore a number of helpful ways to script iframes, both conventional and not. (Mostly not.)

@rmurphey Lessons from a Rewrite
In late 2010, Toura Mobile had developed a PhoneGap-based platform for creating content-rich mobile applications, and customers were buying. The problem was that customers were also asking for more and more complex features, and Toura was rapidly discovering that their platform was more of a prototype than a solid base for future development. In this session, I'll talk about the decision to start from scratch, what we did differently the second time around, how we used features of the Dojo Toolkit to smooth the process, and how we designed the new solution with an emphasis on expecting the unexpected.
@joemccann Choose Your Own Mobile App Framework Adventure
This whole mobile internet thing is probably gonna work out, but you may be asking yourself, with all the various ways of building mobile apps with web technologies, which one is right for me? There are so many choices, how does one choose?!
Don't fret! Like the
Hardy Boys, we will choose the right path to end up with the right framework for your design and development style.
The frameworks we'll cover include:
Appecelerator / Titanium
We'll cover what's right and what's wrong so that you don't end up getting fired (
or shunned and reshunned). There will be some demos and most likely all the code will be given away MIT license style.

@brendaneich Ecma TC39: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.
Fresh off the May TC39 meeting, I will give an update on "ES.next", Harmony beyond that, how things are working and
not working. It will be sweaty, bloody, and thrilling. No Ennio Morricone score, though.
@paulca The Ingredients of Fine Web Applications
The top chefs in the world are specialists in taking basic ingredients, combining them in new and novel ways, and presenting them in ways that delight and amaze their guests.
As frontend programmers, we can learn a lot learn from these gastronomic figureheads; from their scientific approach to choosing, combining and cooking ingredients, to their obsession over service, senses and overall experience.
This is a talk about the relationship between food and code, between fine dining and web applications and ultimately how we can take inspiration from the masters of cuisine to help us build better software for everyone.

@andrewdupont The State of Animation in 2011
Now, in 2011, we've got about nineteen different ways to animate elements. How do they differ? Which approaches are supported in which browsers? What works on mobile devices? And, most importantly: can we abstract away the differences between them and arrive at a solution that Just Works?
Well... it's complicated. I'll be sharing the battle scars I've earned while working on scripty2 and the Gowalla web site. I'll try to explain how (and why) we got here, what works where (both on the desktop and on mobile devices), and what the challenges are for frontend developers who want to do bulletproof animation in web browsers.
@garannm Change your markup, change your life

@paul_irish HTML2 and the DOM
The special relationship between your HTML markup and browsers is one more interesting than you'd think.
In this session we'll cover pedantic differences like "elements" vs "tags" but also get into what it means
that HTML is both markup and a serialization but definitely not the DOM. You'll also learn shortcuts with
HTML that save you time. In the end, you'll have a better understanding of how browsers handle your work.
@mikeal Scraping the web with jQuery and node.js
Who needs an API? Scrape that sh*t!
HTML is the new RSS. DOM is the new DOM. Your Mom is still your Mom.
