Extending Dojo via New Widgets

Nexaweb's Bob Buffone to Present at SYS-CON's AJAXWorld RIA Conference & Expo, Oct. 20-22, in San Jose, CA

The Dojo Toolkit is an open-source JavaScript toolkit that has a large community following in and out of the Enterprise. One of the many useful aspects of Dojo is the ability to extend the toolkit to incorporate new functionality. dojo.E is a set of extensions for dojo 1.1 that makes it easier to build web applications, using XML to create user interfaces, handle events, make DOM modifications, and manage state transitions.

This session takes an in-depth look at the dojo.E project, including several examples of apps and widgets that were built using dojo.E. Learn about extending Dojo via new widgets and how you can use it to rapidly build your own apps.
