jQuery Conference UK 2012

JavaScript was always the language to make the web more interactive and fill the gaps that browsers had when it comes to interaction with the user. With jQuery we moved even further and concentrated on that task, replacing the unwieldy native DOM with a simpler way to spice up our web sites. With browsers moving ahead it is time though to reflect and see just how much code we write that actually is not needed any longer as browsers give us native controls in HTML5. In this talk Chris Heilmann of Mozilla will show just in how many ways modern browsers make it easy for us to offer a rich experience without having to create that on our own. We'll look at UI elements, multimedia capabilities, drawing, animation and how to tie into our user's browsing and web behaviour without forcing a certain path on them. We have amazing technology to play with, we should use it and look ahead instead of patching for the past.
