Creating and Debugging with ManifoldJS and VorlonJS
Sr. Technical Evangelist
ManifoldJS aims to make the life of a mobile developer easier than ever, by utilizing Web App Manifests, which allows websites to declare app-like properties.
Hear how combining the two of them will allow you to create applications at near-native speed, which can be deployed in a number of app stores, and utilizing largely one code base. There is no silver bullet for mobile development, but this certain makes the process easier.
Inclusive UX Design for Blind, Deaf and Disabled Users
There are many great applications and tools being developed and delivered on the fastest development schedules ever achieved in IT. At the same time, many IT organizations leave compliance and supporting the disabled community, the one group that needs to use technology to adapt their environment to their special needs, behind. Shame on us for leaving them behind. Solutions as simple as an "alt" tag and "meta" descriptions, combined with user testing that includes scenarios for the disabled communities, will not only ensure compliance, but ensure a larger user population of tech savvy users continue to age.
Lazy-Loading ES2015 Modules in the Browser
Technical Manager at Avenue Code and Technical Leader at Macys.com
ES2015 is already production-ready through transpilers such as Babel. Now you no longer need to fight the AMD vs. CommonJS war, since you can simply write ES2015 modules, have them transpiled to ES5 and delivered to the browser, which can either happen synchronously (just like CommonJS modules) or asynchronously (just like AMD modules). This talk demonstrates how to load ES2015 modules both synchronously (during page load) and asynchronously (lazy-load) using System.js over Babel, as well as how to use JSPM to organize this process as well as directly resolve dependencies from NPM and GitHub.
