Find Out How and Why Front-End Engineering Rocks at AJAXWorld

AJAXWorld Conference & Expo 2008 East, March 18-20, 2008 in New York City

Front-End Engineering Rocks at AJAXWorld, March 18-20, 2008 New York City! Enjoy the session "Writing Large Web Applications Using the YUI" by Yahoo!'s Chris Heilmann. The session explains the architectural ideas of event-driven application development and shows examples how this is helpful for AJAX applications.

"Web Developers these days should use libraries," Heilmann contends, "for the main reason that all libraries want the same thing: make it easier for developers to think about building their applications rather than worrying about quirks and failures of Web browsers."

Some libraries go even further in giving a helping hand to the aspriring Web application architect, Heilmann notes. "The YUI for example has a Custom Event feature which can be used to create massive applications that can be easily maintained and are fully extendable," he adds.

A front-end architect with Yahoo! Heilmann was born in Germany, and worked for several agencies before spending a .com year working for eToys in the US before settling in the UK. He has written several books on Accessibility, JavaScript and Web Design/Development and currently works for Yahoo! UK. Christian blogs at http://wait-till-i.com and has a backlog of his numerous articles at http://icant.co.uk.
