Meta Refresh 2012

Web design could use some new ideas. We have the tech now.

HTML5 and CSS3 have very quickly moved from being tentative new standards to the base standards for every major desktop and mobile browser. HTML5 is now just HTML, a modular, living standard that no longer needs a version number.

Now that we are no longer fighting over platforms, it’s time to put the specs aside and revisit the construction of user interface: how do we raise the bar for stellar user interface on the web?

Meta Refresh is a follow-up to DocType HTML5 from 2010-11 and is a conference on web UI engineering.

JavaScript + MVC + NodeJS + Mobile = Mojito

Submitted Mar 21, 2012

Why have your web application in all languages (Java / PHP / Python / Ruby) on Server, JavaScript on client… why not everything in one language? MVC on server + MVC on client.. yikes!

Yahoo! Mojito allows you to all the fun… learn about the way future apps are shaping up.

Outline

Yahoo! announced Cocktails in Nov, 2011 - comprising of Mojito and Manhattan

Yahoo! Mojito is a web development framework that can be used to deploy JavaScript components that can run either on the server or a plethora of clients, including mobiles (iPhone, iPad, Android mobiles etc)

Requirements

If you know JavaScript, mastering Mojito is a cakewalk.

If you can write alert(‘Hello, World’) and custom functions in JavaScript, it should be fairly simple to pick up!

Get a Linux / Mac box with the following:
- NodeJS installed
Download from www.nodejs.org
- Mojito installed using
npm install mojito -g
