Friday, August 29th, 2008>p>We talked a few months ago about something new we’re doing at the Ajax Experience this year: the “Framework Summit.” Basically, we’re providing space for Prototype, jQuery, and Dojo to hold their own half-day events on-site, and these events are free and open to the general public.
Since we announced the summit, the frameworks have created their agendas for their events for their events:
Dojo Developer Day:
- Welcome, Introductions (Alex Russell, Dylan Schiemann)
- Tutorial – Progressive Dojo (Peter Higgins)
- Presentation – DojoX GFX and FX (Matthew Russell)
- Presentation – Secrets of DojoX (Tom Trenka)
- Tutorial – Getting going … Zend + Dojo (Matthew O’Phinney)
- Tutorial – Dijit Layouts In and Out (Nikolai Onken)
- Tutorial – Reusable code, Widgeting (Peter Higgins)
- Community – Getting Involved (Peter Higgins, Nikolai Onken)
- Lightning Demos – What do you have? Show us.
Prototype Developer Day
- Welcome, Introductions (Prototype Core members)
- Contributing docs (Christophe Porteneuve)
- Contributing code (Andrew Dupont)
- Prototype & Performance
- Extended Q&A (Prototype Core members)
jQuery Developer Day
- State of jQuery (Rey Bango)
- Progressively Enhancing the User Experience Using jQuery (Karl Swedberg)
- An In-Depth Look at jQuery UI (Paul Bakaus)
- jQuery Team Code Review (jQuery Team)
Some have asked why we didn’t also include Framework X, Y, and Z at the summit. We have a simple answer: we only had room for three frameworks so we choose the three most popular frameworks (according to every survey we’ve seen). If the concept is successful this time around, we hope to do it on a bigger scale next year.
Obviously we hope you can make it to the entire Ajax Experience event, but if you can’t do that, consider coming to one of the Framework Summit events. See you there!
