Understanding progressive enhancement with yui3 – YUIConf2010

Wednesday, November 10th, 2010

For years I have been advocating the benefits of progressive enhancement as a safeguard to deliver working code to the world. In this – my final public talk as a full-time Yahoo employee – I talk about the why and how of progressive enhancement. I take a look at examples from the real world and point out dangers of repeating mistakes from the past for the sake of showing cool technnology.

There is also a copious amount of swearing if I remember correctly. Enjoy.

Using YQL sensibly – my first talk at YUIConf2010

Tuesday, November 9th, 2010

I am currently at YUIConf in Sunnyvale, California to learn lots about YUI3, Node.js and YQL straight from the horse’s mouth. Yesterday I gave my first talk on using YQL in a sensible manner – coming from using webservices in JavaScript up to using localstorage to speed up your apps and keep state for your end users.

Now I need to write my second talk for later on – stay tuned for that one.
