Texas JavaScript | TXJS

  1. When you first think of iframes, you probably think of embedded YouTube videos and web forms. But iframes can do a lot more than just embed third-party content. As an inline, sandboxed DOM environment, the iframe is a powerful tool for communicating across domains, loading resources asynchronously, securing content, and more. In this talk we'll explore a number of helpful ways to script iframes, both conventional and not. (Mostly not.)

  2. Fresh off the May TC39 meeting, I will give an update on "ES.next", Harmony beyond that, how things are working and not working. It will be sweaty, bloody, and thrilling. No Ennio Morricone score, though. [BUT WAIT: twitter.com/rwaldron provided impromptu Morricone intro.]

  3. This whole mobile internet thing is probably gonna work out, but you may be asking yourself, with all the various ways of building mobile apps with web technologies, which one is right for me? There are so many choices, how does one choose?!
    Don't fret! Like the Hardy Boys, we will choose the right path to end up with the right framework for your design and development style.
    The frameworks we'll cover include:
    jQuery Mobile
    Sencha Touch
    Appecelerator / Titanium
    We'll cover what's right and what's wrong so that you don't end up getting fired (or shunned and reshunned). There will be some demos and most likely all the code will be given away MIT license style.

  4. The idea of animating HTML elements with JavaScript was first proposed centuries ago, even before computers existed, but has only been possible for roughly fifteen years.
    Now, in 2011, we've got about nineteen different ways to animate elements. How do they differ? Which approaches are supported in which browsers? What works on mobile devices? And, most importantly: can we abstract away the differences between them and arrive at a solution that Just Works?
    Well... it's complicated. I'll be sharing the battle scars I've earned while working on scripty2 and the Gowalla web site. I'll try to explain how (and why) we got here, what works where (both on the desktop and on mobile devices), and what the challenges are for frontend developers who want to do bulletproof animation in web browsers.

  5. The top chefs in the world are specialists in taking basic ingredients, combining them in new and novel ways, and presenting them in ways that delight and amaze their guests.
    As frontend programmers, we can learn a lot learn from these gastronomic figureheads; from their scientific approach to choosing, combining and cooking ingredients, to their obsession over service, senses and overall experience.
    This is a talk about the relationship between food and code, between fine dining and web applications and ultimately how we can take inspiration from the masters of cuisine to help us build better software for everyone.
