The Future of Web-Apps
Ajaxian Founders, Google and Mozilla Alumnis and now Palm WebOS gurus Dion Almaer and Ben Galbraith will present on The Future of Web Applications. The Ajax revolution saw a sea change in web application development. By taking advantage of long-dormant browser capabilities, we were able to take our craft to new levels-reinventing well-established genres, challenging desktop applications, and jump-starting a renaissance in web start-ups. So what happens when we have new browser features to exploit? This session explores some of the latest shiny toys we can play with-potentially disruptive technologies that just might upset the status quo once again.

CommonJS - JavaScript vs. Ruby, Python, Java, etc.
JavaScript is an enormously popular programming language, because of its unique place as the programming language of the web. Outside of that domain, JS is barely a blip compared to other dynamic languages like Python and Ruby. Outside of the browser, JavaScript is lacking something critical: a significant standard library. Thanks to a powerful standard library and a common module system, sophisticated applications can be written in Python and run unchanged on Windows, Mac and Linux and even across different interpreters including Jython and IronPython. The CommonJS project (formerly ServerJS) is building up a standard library API to give privileged JavaScript applications this same kind of interop. Imagine a server-side webapp that runs equally well in Rhino, SpiderMonkey and v8. We're getting there. Even better, those apps can easily share modules between the browser and the server, which is something you don't get in other languages. In this talk, I'll provide quick background on the project and demos of several implementations of the emerging standard, including how CommonJS impacts Mozilla's Jetpack and Bespin projects.

Server-assisted Collaborative City Planning
Server-Side Javascript (SSJS) has been creating a lot of buzz lately, and it's not hard to see why. We have just begun to discover the possibilities opened up by running Javascript on the server, and it's something we're very excited about. That is why during this presentation we will introduce Ajax.org O3. O3 is a set of C++ components, which are exposed through a Javascript API, and can be used anywhere, be it in a browser or on a server... on all major operating systems. What's more, O3 also provides a set of libraries which allows you to write your own C++ components, and expose them through a Javascript API as well. Eddy and Mike of Ajax.org will show you how to use O3 within a simple collaborative application.

HTML5 JavaScript APIs
Remy Sharp (who is also doing the Full Frontal JavaScript conference (which we highly recommend)) will be talking about the HTML5 JavaScript APIs. HTML5 is all the rage with the cool kids, and although there's a lot of focus on the new language, there's lots of interesting new JavaScript APIs both in the HTML5 spec and separated out. This presentation will take you through demos and code behind the new JavaScript APIs, and explore where these features can be used.

Mobile JavaScript - Phonegap
Brian LeRoux, of PhoneGap fame, will be presenting on mobile JavaScript at JSConf.eu. Speaking from experience from JSConf.US he will also play an important part of the beer | party track and will make sure that we have quality bacon available. The mobile web is growing super fast with devices like the iPhone, Android, Blackberry, Nokia and the new Palm Pre leading the charge. In this talk you will learn what this crazy tiny window to the web means to a JavaScript developer. Hacking on various mobile devices you'll learn about the typical architecture for a mobile app, performance optimization, caching, progressive enhancement, testing, tradeoffs between platforms, a nifty newish library called XUI and, of course, going hybrid with PhoneGap. Warning: this talk will be code heavy, pixel perfect and possibly a touch vulgar.

Writing apps on the edge with CouchDB
Berlin local Alexander Lang, will be presenting on building edgy web apps with CouchDB and JavaScript. More and more applications move away from classic desktop apps into the Internet. Taking HTML/CSS, JavaScript and today's browsers we can develop complex apps with rich user interfaces. The problem of these "cloud" applications is that they rely on central servers and a permanent internet connection, which even today is not always available. In this talk I demonstrate how to write applications that can run on servers as well as locally on a computer. After being offline any data changes can be synchronized back easily, using CouchDB and its replication features.

Loading JS - even caveman can do it
Kyle Simpson, aka Getify, will be talking about "Loading JavaScript: Even a caveman can do it." No matter how awesome your JavaScript code is, we all face the same problem: how to squeeze it down the wire and get it loaded and running in the browser as quickly and efficiently as possible. There are about as many ways to approach this problem as there are developers trying to solve it, which makes the landscape of JavaScript Loading solutions confusing and painful to navigate. But it doesn't have to be so ugly. We're gonna break it down so you can come away feeling more confident in how best to load your JavaScript. Several common strategies will be covered, including: _ Build-time versus on-the-fly techniques _ Code organization/compression (minification, gzip, etc) _ File concatenation _ Inline scripts _ Dynamic parallel loading of JavaScript resources (LABjs, etc) _ Cache optimization (initialization profiling, on-demand loading, pre-fetching, etc)

Using dojox.gfx and dojox.charting for stunning, portable, cross-browser, real-time 2D graphics
Peter Svensson will give us deep insights into real-time 2D graphics in the browser. The Dojo Ajax Toolkit has a multitude of different features that help save time for the harried JavaScript developer. One of the most powerful and yet least known is the Canvas like dojox.gfx API, which adapts itself to the browser's 2D capabilities. It can use VML, SVG, Canvas and Silverlight, depending on what the browser supports. On top of the dojox.gfx library is also built the dojox.charting API which leverages the cross-browser graphics of dojox.gfx to provide snappy, versatile, themable and configurable charting with tooltips, dynamic scaling and general eventing.

JavaScript in the age of HTML5 and CSS3
The awesome Faruk Ateş will be talking about using JavaScript in the age of HTML5 and CSS 3. Browsers are slowly implementing bits and pieces of HTML 5 and CSS 3. What does this mean for JavaScript? For years, JavaScript authors have created tools and libraries that supplement older browsers with the technologies of modern ones, but the landscape is changing. What are these things that are slowly rendering a useful part of the JavaScript world obsolete, and why is that a good thing for JavaScript authors?

End to End JavaScript - From Server to Client
Tom Hughes-Croucher from Yahoo! will present on End to End JavaScript - From Server to Client. YQL provides a Rhino environment to allow you build server-side executable code which can be used to process data. We are going to use this JavaScript environment to provide data to our front-end code to make a working end-end JavaScript AJAX environment. This talk will focus on some of the interesting aspects of using JavaScript serverside, such as processing web pages without a DOM, asynchronous HTTP calls, and using E4X to deal with XML. We'll look at many of the interesting features of JavaScript 1.6 which are safe to use outside the browser. Next I'll show how you can take the data provided by our server side JavaScript and render it on the client using JSONP or JSONP-X (JSONP with an XML payload). There will be practical advice on the best way to get data and include it on modern browsers, and mobile devices (iPhone, Pre, etc).

OOCSS
Yahoo CSS ninja Nicole Sullivan will present on applying sotware engineering practices to CSS. How do you scale CSS for millions of visitors or thousands of pages? What happens to the size of your CSS file as more pages and modules are added? The answer, for most sites, is that it grows out of control and becomes an unmaintainable tangle of spaghetti code. Perhaps more importantly, our sites are too brittle and require guru-level abilities to make even simple changes. CSS is a powerful, beautiful, and expressive language, but deeply misunderstood and often poorly written. Now is exactly the right moment for it to get a dose of software engineering best practices. Object Oriented CSS allows you to write fast, maintainable, standards-based front-end code. It adds much needed predictability to CSS so that even beginners can create beautiful websites.

Autopsy of a Widget
With modern JavaScript frameworks like ExtJS, SproutCore or qooxdoo, it is possible to create very rich user interfaces using only open web standards. But how do they do it? How do they work internally? In this talk Fabian will open the thorax of a simple qooxdoo widget and look at the various layers and building blocks used to implement it. You will learn how the widget is represented in the DOM, how events are handled, and how the layout engine works. Often there is more than a single way to achieve something. In those cases the different options and qooxdoo's specific design decision will be presented. This talk is targeting everyone interested in building rich user interfaces with JavaScript. We would love to discuss our ideas with JavaScript experts and developers of other frameworks.

node.js, Evented I/O for V8
Node.js, Evented I/O for V8 Javascript It is well known that event loops rather than threads are required for high-performance servers. Javascript is a language unencumbered of threads and designed specifically to be used with synchronous evented I/O, making it an attractive means of programming server software. Node.js ties together the V8 Javascript compiler with an event loop, a thread pool for making blocking system calls, and a carefully designed HTTP parser to provide a browser-like interface to creating fast server-side software. This talk will explain Node's design and how to get started with it.

Evidence is a new, framework-agnostic unit testing library which I developed out of necessity and frustration with the existing offering. Although it's heavily inspired by it's Ruby, Python and Java couterparts, Evidence is packed with niceness targeted at the specificities of the JavaScript language and its different environments. Hopefully this introduction to Evidence will give you the motivation, tools and knowledge to start unit testing your JavaScript code if you are not doing so already.

JavaScript in Browser Performance
"Even Faster Web Sites" Web 2.0 is adding more and more content to our pages, especially features that are implemented in Ajax. But our web applications are evolving faster than the browsers that they run in. We don't have to rely on or wait for the release of new browsers to make our web applications faster. In this session, Steve Souders discusses web performance best practices from his second book, Even Faster Web Sites. These time-saving techniques are used by the world's most popular web sites to create a faster user experience, increase revenue, and reduce operating costs. Steve provides technical details about reducing the pain of JavaScript, as well as secrets for making your page load faster in emerging markets where network connectivity is a challenge. Steve might also have some time to talk about the JS behind his new tool SpriteMe and maybe (but just maybe) we might even have a contest in massively parallel JavaScript loading with Getify :)
