Palagpat Coding

Fun with JavaScript, game theory, and the occasional outbreak of seriousness

In Case You Missed It: 2010 (day 2)

Here's part 2 of my attempt to distill the juicy bits from last weekend's JSConf presentations (here's part 1). Of course, this is only a pale imitation of the experience of actually attending the conference, but hopefully it will serve to keep you, dear readers, up to speed on the latest, bleeding-edge movements within the JavaScript community. Let's get to it:

As with Part 1, this is what I've been able to find so far. A lot of the Track B and panel discussions were largely unscripted, and I'm pretty sure Track B wasn't taped, so A lot of the slide decks haven't shown up online yet, so I've tried to link to the most relevant blogs talking about the topics in question. In a few instances (e.g. Rob Tsuk's talk on Mojo/webOS development for Palm), I've failed to find much of anything relevant online, so we'll have to wait and see what (if anything) eventually finds its way online. This is of course one of the big reasons why actually attending a conference is preferable to just reading about it after the fact, and I highly encourage you to take that opportunity when it presents itself.

As before, if there are slide decks from other talks online that I don't have linked here, please note it in the comments below, and I'll update accordingly.


  • 2010-04-23: @Getify corrected my bad assumption about the Track B talks, so I've revised the last paragraph.
  • 2010-04-26: Gonzalo Cordero just posted his YUI3 talk slides, so I've added them.
  • 2010-04-27: Dude sent me the link to JDalton's slide deck, so I've added it to the Track A listing.
  • 2010-05-05: Paul Irish graciously shared his copy of Justin Meyer's JavascriptMVC notes, so I've linked them in.
  • 2010-05-12: Tom Hughes-Croucher posted his JSConf recap on the YDN Blog, and it included refs to a couple of the Yahoo presentations that I'd been missing. They're now linked into the table.

    Actually, all of Track B was taped as well and should be online. And I actually think most of the Track B talks were scripted and had slide decks and such. Most of us were those who proposed Track A talks and didn't get selected.

    Noteable exceptions as unscripted awesomeness would be Chris' cool "how did i pull of jsconf" and the "hangover.js" coding session with the leopard skin robe!
