Building on the principles taught last year in my session titled "Contextual jQuery" (See http://bit.ly/contextualjquery for a video), we'll take off the kid gloves and dive into the techniques you will need to write adaptive, reusable and responsible jQuery. Techniques that will be covered in this talk include: methods for discovering users actions for just-in-time initialization, understanding delegation and how to use it to write code with minimal setup methods, using deferreds to write code that works the same way regardless of the initialization state and using localStorage to predict user actions over time to provide for a faster user experience. In addition to the initialization strategies, we'll look at ways to glean data from the current environment to allow your code to be responsive instead of declarative.
