A peek under the hood of YUI3 – Satyen Desai on library architecture

Category: Framework, Library, Yahoo!

Talks about JavaScript are not a rare occasion any more, everybody has something to say about this wonderfully versatile language. Douglas Crockford taught us a lot about the language itself, John Resig and Peter Paul Koch taught us how browsers deal (and fail dealing) with it and there are dozens of screencasts of how to use this or that language.

What most of these talks and videos have in common is application of JavaScript and how to deal with issues that will occur. Information about designing and architecting large JavaScript solutions on the other hand are rare. Satyen Desai now broke the silence and gave a great talk on the architecture and design decisions of the the third generation of the Yahoo User Interface library:

John Resig and PPK on browsers? Sounds like a waste of an hour.

Is it just me or does John Resig look like a girl?

‘s funny how Americans say “why you i” (or “ee ex tee”). I just say “yooie” (or “ext”)

Anyone say “dee oh jay oh”?
