Marcin Wichary: You Gotta Do What You Gotta Do (Full Frontal Conference 2011)

http://2011.full-frontal.org/schedule HTML is incredible and powerful. HTML is a mess. Marcin, a user experience designer at Google, will talk about the experience working on interactive doodles like Pac-Man, Jules Verne and Les Paul. How do we put together things that will be seen by hundreds millions of people? What did we get right? What did we learn the hard way? What rules were broken and what contraptions put together? (Oh, and make sure to bring your phones!)

Glenn Jones: Beyond the Page (Full Frontal Conference 2011)

http://2011.full-frontal.org/schedule The latest browser APIs now make it possible to redesign how your web pages interact with other applications. Web pages are too often little islands that fail to play well with the wider user interfaces of our devices. This talk will explore the possibilities from Drag and Drop to Web Intents, demonstrating how to make web pages more equal in the world of applications.

Nicholas Zakas: Scalable Javascript Application Architecture (Full Frontal Conference 2011)

http://2011.full-frontal.org/schedule Building large web applications with dozens of developers is a difficult task. Organising the engineers around a common goal is one thing, but organising your code so that people can work efficiently is another. Many large applications suffer from growing pains after just a few months in production due to poorly designed JavaScript with unclear upgrade and extension paths. Learn the tips, tricks, and techniques that allowed large sites such as My Yahoo! and the Yahoo! homepage to continue to grow, scale, and change over time without throwing away previous work. This talk isn’t specific to any JavaScript library, rather, it gives you new ways to apply the libraries you’re already using. The principles of good, loosely-coupled design apply to any system, and you’ll learn how this can help your application today.

Rik Arends: How We Architected Cloud9 Ide for Scale on Nodejs (Full Frontal Conference 2011)

http://2011.full-frontal.org/schedule Building and scaling a web based IDE is a big challenge, and doing this on Node.JS gave us a lot of unique challenges. Cloud9 is built using a full Ajax client, and besides Node.JS utilizes a full set of new HTML5 features and offline support. In this talk Rik will go through a quick demo of Cloud9 IDE, and then into the unique architecture and design decisions that we made to build Cloud9 IDE. This will be of interest to medium to advanced level programmers, who want to know more about Cloud9 IDE, Node.JS and scalable app development.

Marijn Haverbeke: Respectable Code-Editing in the Browser (Full Frontal Conference 2011)

http://2011.full-frontal.org/schedule The past few years have seen the rise and maturation of several full-blown in-browser code editors: CodeMirror, ACE (Cloud9), and Orion. No longer must we mortify users with huge, clunky text areas when they need to edit some CSS or script. This talk will go over the current state of JavaScript-based editors, and describe the implementation of CodeMirror in some depth.

Jeremy Ashkenas: Coffeescript Design Decisions (Full Frontal Conference 2011)

http://2011.full-frontal.org/schedule Although limited by what's possible to express in simple JavaScript, CoffeeScript tries to provide pieces of clear syntax that fit together in harmony. We'll dive into the rationale behind some of CoffeeScript's language choices to look at the trade offs involved, and both the why's and why not's.
