Jonathan Phillips of Me.dium is giving a talk at 3:20pm PDT in which he will be broadcasting his work through Me.dium itself.
Me.dium: Mapping the Internet and Its Users in a 208 Pixel Wide Sidebar
Me.dium provides a real-time, shared browsing experience where users are able to see crowds form on popular sites and follow recommended paths around the Internet. This session covers the challenges that Me.dium has faced designing a user interface in a space that is only 208 pixels wide, as well as the technical challenges of implementing a long-lived Ajax application using the Dojo toolkit. Attendees can leverage this knowledge to continue to push the boundaries of Ajax development.
In this session, you will learn how to:
- Deliver a substantial amount of functionality in a compact space;
- Gradually introduce complex user interface elements to create a more tenable learning curve;
- Build an interface that is entertaining.
- Performance tune a long running Dojo application;
- Use the Dojo gfx package for client-side rendering of a map of the Internet.
