YUI: Open Hours Thurs May 12th

By YUI TeamMay 9th, 2011

Component owner updates and a discussion about the future of Loader

In the wake of Adam Moore leaving the YUI team for “Startup”ier pastures, we recently did a big shuffle of components, assigning new owners to a number of core components including Loader, Event, and the YUI global. Dav Glass will be cohosting the call with Eric F this week to talk about the reassignments and open the conversation about what’s on the roadmap for these components.

If you have brilliant ideas, nagging itches, or just plain old thoughts about the YUI global object, Loader, the module system, or anything else, call in. We’re all ears!

Time & Details

We’ll be online from 10am to 11am PDT Thursday. The connection details are the same as usual.

  1. Dial in to 1-888-371-8922 (Skype works great for non-US participants*)
  2. Enter the attendee code 47188953#
  3. Join the screen sharing session (this will prompt you to install the Adobe Connect plugin if this is your first time using it)

* – If Skype is not an option, email me or catch me (davglass) in the #yui IRC channel on freenode for a local number.


  1. During Open Hours, Dav Glass gave us a run-down of the exciting stuff in the YUI pipline. The YUI components that Adam Moore was the lead developer on have been re-assigned to the other YUI core developers:

    Dav: Seed, Loader, Gallery, YUIDoc
    Luke: Dump, Event, Substitute, SimpleYUI
    Reid: Builder, Compressor, 2-in-3
    Ryan: Get, App Framework, Collection/Array Extras

    During the call, we looked at a few different project and sites that I want to highlight:

    * YUI CLA can be signed online
    * Great write-up on serving YUI 3 locally
    * Sneek-peek at new YUI Doc
    * YUIDocJS for API docs
    * Selleck for overview docs
    * Luke’s YUI 3 EventX POC

  2. Hi,

    Liking the new YUI Docs…

    “Something smart and pretty should probably go here.”

    I’m thinking either a picture of Dav or a search box?


  3. I don’t think a picture of me should go there, I don’t fall into either category ;)

    I’m working with our new design guru to get these all cleaned up soon.
