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.

Tutorial: Knockout.js + Twitter + Maps

Submitted Apr 5, 2012

Learn how to building rich UI (js heavy) web applications using Knockout.js. To learn better we will integrate with twitter streaming api and integrate with Google maps.

Outline

Connect to twitter using streaming api and pull relevant tweets (you can change this dynamically from the UI) and plot them on the map. Learn how to handle interactivity on one page with minimal js code.

[If you have experience working with JQuery, you would know this would require at least 1000 lines of code; lets see if we can do it in under 50]

Requirements

Basic knowledge of javascript and jquery
