As more and more applications are moving into the client-side, developers are looking for new abstractions that help eliminate repeated code and simplify the development of applications.
SproutCore’s bindings make it easy to build an application with a focus on data, rather than reverse-engineering application state from the DOM. SproutCore 2.0 makes this possible with a small core library and optional build tools.
In this talk, Yehuda will cover the basics of the SproutCore architecture, and talk about the philosophy behind the radical improvements in SproutCore 2.0. twitter.com/wycats

Professional automation for PhoneGap based application development. That’s it. I'm going to teach you how to rockstar your next mobile project without hunting around a vendor IDE like a goof.
This will be a code heavy departure from the usual orgy of 4chan images and swearing you have come to expect from Brian. But if you think his talks are expletive laden normally just imagine him writing code!

In late 2010, Toura Mobile had developed a PhoneGap-based platform for creating content-rich mobile applications, and customers were buying. The problem was that customers were also asking for more and more complex features, and Toura was rapidly discovering that their platform was more of a prototype than a solid base for future development. In this session, I'll talk about the decision to start from scratch, what we did differently the second time around, how we used features of the Dojo Toolkit to smooth the process, and how we designed the new solution with an emphasis on expecting the unexpected.
