10 Things I Learned about the jQuery Source 4.88 http://spkr8.com/t/2973


.. and here is a description of a talk that I didn't do:

The battle to implement HTML5 and CSS3 is fraught with landmines, boobytraps, outdated specs, and of course, Internet Explorer. JavaScript is a potent weapon to wield, but only once you are trained in the arts of Progressive Enhancement and Feature Detection can you conquer these beasts, cross-browser. Add treasures such as localStorage, <video>, and 3D transforms to your booty today and dazzle your users—without blowing them up!

Bullet points, nay. Cannon balls, matey.

  • Look through thar performance periscope at HTML5 Drag 'n Drop vs draggable(). CSS Transitions vs animate()
  • What is thar performance delta of CSS3 vs. IE filters?
  • How cross-browser be these? Do I tempt Davy Jones' locker?
  • How t' take advantage of graceful degradation by default in CSS3, but catch unsupportin' browsers by th' toes
  • Detail'd fallbacks fer each feature: Geolocation normalization, shadows, corners, and more.
  • Making IE8 Compatibility mode walk th' plank
  • Yonder most clever uses of these technologies seen thus far in th' real-world.
  • A proven treasure map to get clients on your side, and demand that not all browsers are equal, or else!

Join cap'n Paul Irish to navigate these thrashing waters.

Great, hilarious delivery. Showing code examples and changing it live made all the difference in the world. Possibly the most informative presentation of the weekend.

Could we get the source from the demo?

Funny and informative. Really showed that anyone can dive in and learn from source code. Shows that jquery isn't as scary as some other frameworks source code.
