In this talk given at Yahoo!, Steve Peha, the president of Teaching That Makes Sense, makes a case for applying the processes and culture of the technology world to the world of education.
Now that YUIConf 2011 is over (and it was awesome!), the team is back to the grindstone, working on 3.5.0.
We’ve outlined the high level goals for the release, and we can talk about some of them, but what we’d like to focus on in this Open Hours are some new methods for sharing and engaging with the community in the design phase of this work. In particular, you’ll see more Pull Requests and Gists from the YUI team to forecast new development and steer ongoing development on our respective development forks and branches.
Here are some of the current ongoing discussions that are open for your feedback:
Y.Button(source and examples)
Y.WidgetStringRenderer— Renders Widgets to HTML strings instead of DOM nodes
Y.App— A top-level application component which manages navigation and views
We’d like to get your feedback in these forums, your own gists and pull requests, and your suggestions for other ways that we can make 3.5.0 the most transparent and collaborative release yet!
We’ll be online on Thursday from 10am to 11am PST.
The recording is available in the YUILibrary YouTube channel.
In this talk from YUIConf 2011, YUI engineer Satyen Desai discusses what he learned about mobile performance — and how those learnings will feed back into YUI — when he spent a few months working with the Yahoo! Livestand team on their gorgeous (and blazing fast!) new iPad app.
In one of the most popular talks at YUIConf 2011, YUI engineer Eric Ferraiuolo discusses the MVC components of the YUI App Framework and some of the new features coming in YUI 3.5.0 and beyond, including Handlebars-based templating and a new Y.App component that makes the creation of MVC apps easier than ever on desktop, mobile, and the server.
