We are continuing our series of video releases from YUIConf 2012. Check back every few days for a new release, subscribe to the YUI Theater RSS feed, and watch the yuilibrary channel on YouTube. Be sure to check out the previous video from Jeff and Tilo as well!

In this talk from YUIConf 2012, the SmugMug sorcerer and former YUI team member Luke Smith provides a walkthrough of the fundamentals of Y.Attribute and its various incarnations. He goes through the runtime execution of its API explaining configurations and the rationale for using them. He also explores their relationship to events and how they are merged when extending or mixing classes.
