I’ll be joined by three other awesome speakers including John Resig, Karl Swedberg and Ben Alman. Here’s the breakdown of the sessions:
Topics and schedule
- Beyond String Concatenation. Using jQuery Templating to Cleanly Display Your Data
- Testing Your Mobile Web Apps
This talk will be a comprehensive look at what you need to know to properly test your web applications on mobile devices, based upon the work that’s been done by the jQuery team. We’ll look at the different mobile phones that exist, what browsers they run, and what you can do to support them. Additionally we’ll examine some of the testing tools that can be used to make the whole process much easier.
- Taking jQuery Effects to the Next Level
One of the first things web developers learn to do with jQuery is to show and hide elements on a page and then add some flair by sliding those elements up and down or fading them in and out. Too often, though, we stop there, missing out on the incredible range and flexibility of jQuery’s core effects. In this talk, we’ll investigate both standard and custom animations and how they can be used to create useful and fun effects. We’ll also build a couple effects plugins, explore parts of the effects API that are often overlooked, and learn how to avoid common problems when attaching these effects to certain events.
- jQuery Pluginization
In this live-coding session, Ben explains how, with just a little thought and effort around generalization, parameterization and organization, you can convert your “just get the job done” jQuery code into a legitimate, reusable, modular jQuery plugin.
This really is a great lineup and I’m looking forward to being a part of this great event. It’s been a very long time since I’ve done a presentation so this will be a good warm up for some other conferences I plan on speaking at later this year.
