JavaScript Programming Style and Your Brain, Douglas Crockford Yahoo, keynote. Computer programs are the most complicated stuff that people make. Computer programs must be perfect, and people are not good at that. JavaScript is one of our least perfect programming languages. But there are positive things that can reduce your error rate and enhance your beauty.

2D High Performance, Resizable, Cross Platform Games,, Ben Savage CEO Sibblingz, games keynote. Ben’s team made what everyone wants in a 2d HTML5/Hybrid game engine called Spaceport. But how? Get an architectural peak behind the covers and how they pulled it off in this games keynote and the challenges cross platform games and apps face. The decisions are facinating, and Spaceport could be the HTML5 flash replacement and more.

High Performance HTML5, Steve Souders Google. For years we built web apps that far outpaced the capabilities of the browsers they ran in. Just as the browsers were catching up HTML5 came on the scene - video and audio, canvas, SVG, ApplicationCache, Web Storage, @font-face, ContentEdible, WebSockets, Web Workers, and more. Now the browsers are racing to stay ahead of the wave that’s building as developers adopt these new capabilities.

Hands on Jquery Mobile, Sidney Maestre, Paypal. The jQuery JavaScript library is extremely popular among developers for simplifying how we build web applications. jQuery Mobile takes it to the next level by providing a unified user interface system across all popular mobile device platforms. In this session, we’ll cover how to structure your mobile application, touch events, helper methods and working with data. We’ll build a mobile app using jQuery Mobile toolbars, buttons, form elements and list components. You’ll leave with a solid foundation for future jQuery Mobile projects.

CSS Animations, Michael Mullany Interim CEO Sencha. Animations are built on top of CSS Transforms and Transitions, and provide a keyframe-based animation technology for web page animation. In this session, Michael will cover the elements of CSS transitions and transforms and the state of their implementation in current browsers. Then he will move into CSS Animations and show the mechanics of creating timelines, animation nestings, performance optimization and more. He will also compare and contrast CSS3 Animations with SVG based animations.

Intro to node.js, David Kordemeister founder Razoortooth Communications. David will do a session on Getting started with Node.js. What is Node.js? Server Side JavaScript. The reasons for choosing Node to build apps — especially low-latency, real-time apps — are increasingly compelling. David will introduce you a technology that warning, can be addictive.


A Practical Application of node.js, Francois Laberge, CIO Brass Monkey. Can’t get enough node.js? Francois has experience in building both platforms and games with node.js.

Making Waves: A Primer in Pure JS Generated Audio Max Goodman, Reddit. This talk will demonstrate a method of dynamically filling audio tags by generating raw base64 wave data URIs on the fly. We’ll then discuss and implement some simple audio synthesizer techniques, and use them to generate live iterative music. Along the way, we’ll also talk about the science of sound, Mozilla’s extended audio API, HTML5 games, and cool things people are already making with dynamic audio in JS.

PlayN. Angry Bird Chrome game engine Lilli Thompsen Google.

3D Intro to HTML5 Game Programming - WebGL Edition James Williams Co-Creator Griffon Project. Author of Learning HTML5 Game Programming, Based on OpenGL ES, WebGL brings the 3D world to the browser without any plugins. For the first time, the browser has access to a powerful graphics pipeline comparable to what is available on the desktop and in some cases can leverage the GPU. Innovations like requestAnimationFrame which helps the browser to intelligently and efficiently redraw the canvas helps to blur the line between desktop and browser based casual games. In this session, you’ll learn the basics of game programming, WebGL, and how to create games using libraries from the WebGL ecosystem.

HTML5: All about Web Forms Estelle Weyl, Standardista. HTML5 Forms. HTML forms have been the bane of web developers for years. Not anymore! With HTML5 you may learn to love forms. Imagine a day when you can validate a form without any JavaScript. Date pickers, place holder text, pattern matching, required fields, auto focus, error handling, all without JavaScript? That day is not as far off as you think. In this session we’ll discuss new to HTML5 form input types and attributes. We can’t promise that you’ll love creating web forms, but you will gain a new, exciting appreciation. We’ll learn all about creating dynamic web forms with form validation without the use of javascript. Topics covered include:

  • The new HTML5 input types
  • Controlling what keyboard types gets displayed on touch keyboards, including the iPad and iPhone,
  • Placeholder Attribute: Adding native placeholder text and clearing on focus
  • Native form validation: Error messages with no javascript
  • Date & time input types: The jQuery datepicker, without jQuery.
  • Providing focus to a form element, including focus on invalid input without javascript.
  • CSS & Forms: Stylizing form elements based on current states of required and invalid
  • Pattern attribute – Pattern matching for form input: with regular expressions and no javascript
  • element and list attribute- providing autosuggest on inputs, again no javascript.

Browsers are beginning to support HTML5 web forms. In this session we’ll learn how to implement them.

Angular, a Framework for Web Applications Miško Hevery, Google, an author ofAngular. A quote on Angular -- "Angular is what a HTML would have been, had it been designed for web-applications. Angular allows you to extend the HTML vocabulary, have proper business-logic / presentation separation through bidirectional data-binding, declarative application assembly through dependency-injection, and testability story like no other framework. Angular is a fundamentally different way of building an AJAX app." Take advantage of learning about Angular directly from Miško.
