  • 9:15 Richard D. Worth The State of jQuery

    jQuery has grown over 7 years to become the most widely used JavaScript library ever. This talk will cover the current state of jQuery and related projects, jQuery UI, jQuery Mobile, QUnit, and TestSwarm. We will also discuss the jQuery Foundation, which supports the development of these and the community around them.

  • 11:15 Doug Neiner CSS3 Animations, Transitions
    and jQuery


    Doug Neiner is a front-end web developer with a love for semantic markup, powerful CSS, and efficient, reusable JavaScript. Doug loves sharing what he has learned and helping both new and developing JavaScript developers perfect their craft. When he isn't programming or designing on the computer, you might find him playing with his four wonderful children, hanging out with his beautiful wife, cooking up something in the kitchen or talking about the farm he wants to own one day.

    CSS3 animations and transitions offer increased browser performance for animations on desktop and mobile. However, they also introduce a completely different approach to animations than jQuery's animate functions. Even if you choose to use CSS3, are fallbacks using jQuery animation even worth it? Are there ever situations where jQuery’s animate function would be preferred over CSS3 animation?

    In this session you will learn when to use jQuery, CSS3 or both together; how to control animations and transitions from jQuery and how to account for animation fallbacks in your code. This session will also cover how the jQuery animation queue behaves and present strategies for using that queue with CSS3 and other custom code in your application.


  • 12:00 Sebastian Kurfürst Using RequireJS for building
    component-based JavaScript applications



    Sebastian Kurfürst is a member of the TYPO3 Core Team, especially involved the development of TYPO3 Phoenix, our next-generation CMS. Besides his work as PHP developer, he has mainly worked on JavaScript projects based on EmberJS and RequireJS. He loves clean code, design patterns and agile methodologies, but tries to stay pragmatic at the same time.

    For building the TYPO3 Phoenix User Interface, we've used a wide variety of frameworks and technologies. Besides jQuery and EmberJS at its core, we also use jQuery UI and a number of frameworks for in-page content editing such as VIE, CreateJS and Aloha. For managing this number of external dependencies, we soon started to embrace RequireJS as dependency management solution. However, during implementation, it turns out that some problems such as multiple jQuery versions, external non-AMD code, importing complete requireJS applications or debugging loading-order issues are non-trivial to solve. In this talk, you will get an overview about these problems, together with the solutions we found for them, as these are applicable for many big JavaScript projects.

  • 13:30 Jörn Zaefferer Talk To Me - Making web sites accessible to those who can benefit the most from them

    jQuery UI


    Jörn is a freelance web developer, consultant and trainer, residing in Cologne, Germany. Jörn evolved jQuery’s testsuite into QUnit, a JavaScript unit testing framework, and maintains it. He created and maintains a number of popular plugins. As a jQuery UI development lead, he focuses on the development of new plugins, widgets and utilities.

    A computer that can talk to us has been part of science fiction for a long time. For those with limited or no sight at all it has been a reality for a while. It's this group that often benefits the most from the web, since it can give them a form of independence they might not have in their day to day life.

    What do we need to make web sites usable for them?

    • Arguments to convince your boss of the value of making web sites accessible.
    • Software to work with and test against.
    • Examples of the challenges and how to overcome them with JavaScript.

He advises companies on these topics to help them evaluate, explore and apply suitable technologies and methods. He also works as a journalist for various trade publications and as a speaker and content manager for conferences at home and abroad. Microsoft has awarded Golo the Most Valuable Professional (MVP) for C# accolade twice in recognition of his excellent work in the community.

    For years you have been using jQuery on the client-side. And now there is Node.js on the server-side. And this basically means that all the things you have loved about jQuery are dead and gone, right? Wrong! Although there is no DOM on the server (at least not by default) there are lots of tasks you can accomplish using jQuery *and* Node.js! In this talk Golo Roden presents three server-side scenarios where jQuery is the perfect companion for Node.js! So if do you love jQuery and you need to do server-side programming with Node.js, join :-)!

It requires that designers and developers have to explore new ways of thinking and have to discover new approaches. Fortunately the acquired knowledge is not lost: Adapt it and build around new, technology independent concepts in an agile and prototypic way. Sascha shows inspiring examples and how to create this new way of interactive systems in practice.


  • 16:15 Christian Heilmann Helping or hurting?

    We are in a time of change. The web as we knew it is not only changing in terms of technologies and demands - but user preferences are changing, too. More and more people are experiencing the web first and foremost on mobile devices and tablets which brings new challenges to us as developers. For years now libraries have made it easier for developers to build engaging and beautiful products by abstracting away issues like DOM access and event handling into a predictable and simple syntax. This is great and it gave the web a much bigger boost than anything else. Now is the time for libraries to help with the newer challenge of a changing environment. "The web always wins" is not a given - we have to keep evolving and innovating with it. Libraries are a great solution to make it easy for developers to build products without much hassle but the libraries we use nowadays more and more solve problems of the past rather than simplifying the near future. In this talk Chris Heilmann of Mozilla will show how we can lead the next generation of developers to build for the web instead of adding cruft to it. The mobile revolution is upon us and we have the means and the knowledge to lead it.

  • 11:15 Mike West Mitigate Maliciousness: Securing the client side


    Mike is a philosophy student, cleverly disguised as a developer advocate on Google's Chrome team in Munich, Germany. Since it was relatively clear early on that it would be slightly more than difficult to make a living sitting under a tree while reading Kant, he's focused his energies on the web, which happily has proven itself to be a wonderful decision. He's a committer to both Chromium and WebKit, and has even landed a single patch to Firefox.

    jQuery has made it possible for developers to move more and more complex application logic down from the server to the client. This is a huge opportunity for JavaScript developers, and at the same time presents a tempting target for folks with malicious intent. It's more critical than ever to ensure that we're doing the right things with regard to security, and happily, modern browsers are here to help. Here, we'll talk about some of the new ways in which you can mitigate the effects of cross-site scripting and other attacks.

  • 14:15 Dio Synodinos State of the Art in Web Visualisations

    The more information-rich our societies become, the more demand there is for representing information visually, and the HTML5 platform is one of the best ways to create visualizations and communicate a message. Either for making sense of quantitative data, displaying qualitative information or simply creating the next Mona Lisa, technologies like CSS3, SVG, Canvas, WebGL, etc, provide a very powerful toolbox for developers, designers and artists.

    In this presentation we’re going to start of by examining all the enabling HTML5 technologies that were mentioned, their features and how they are used in practice to deliver captivating user experiences. Then we’re going to move one level up and talk about the frameworks that make these powerful but sometimes overly complex technologies, more accessible to programmers. We’re going to see frameworks like Raphaël, Processing.js, D3.js, Fabric.js, etc, their features and their applicability. Finally, time permitting, we’re going to go over online examples that best demonstrate the power of the web platform for visualizations and analyze how they were created.



    Dio Synodinos is the research platform team lead at C4Media and a freelance consultant, focusing on rich Internet applications, web application security, mobile web, and web services. He’s also the lead editor for HTML5 and JavaScript at InfoQ where he also regularly writes about the JVM platform. He is the coauthor of "Pro HTML5 and CSS3 Design Patterns" (published by Apress) and "The Essential Guide to HTML5 and CSS3 Web Design" (published by friendsofED).

    Create.js is an inline editing toolkit for JavaScript, designed to be used by content management systems and other web applications. It allows users to edit content directly on the web pages where it is presented. Built as a set of jQuery UI widgets, it integrates easily with any web framework, allowing developers to decouple their content editing tools from the rest of the system. This session will introduce the ideas of Decoupled Content Management, and show how jQuery UI and Create.js can be used as the front-end editing tool in any web application.
