Building Mobile Web Components Using the Principle of Composition

Come learn what it looks like to build mobile web applications using open-web technologies, presented by Dave Mosher, Front-End Engineer.

Experience some of the challenges when building a mobile application for the web, as well as some tools and a workflow that can make it easy. We will talk about building your own interface widgets using the principle of composition instead of inheritance, and look at some simple examples of common mobile interface components created with Twitter Bootstrap and Backbone.js

Dave Mosher is a Front-End Engineer who has been designing and building web applications since using HTML tables for layout started to go out of style. A background in classical design and computer systems technology has enabled him to roam between the worlds of design and development. Dave hails from Saskatoon, but has worked with both local and international clients for the last 3 years. He is currently writing mobile rich-client web applications using Ruby on Rails, Backbone.JS, CoffeeScript, and Lineman.

    I enjoyed the talk. One suggestion: it would have been helpful to know that it was JavaScript-focused. I bring this up because there are so many elements to "front end" that I wasn't sure what to expect. (With Bootstrap, for example, there's a mix of JS and CSS, etc.) But I appreciated the general talk, the resources (so I can brush up on a few new things), and had a good conversation with new people at the end. Thanks, Dave!

    The 'end time' section was not filled in so it may have displayed automatically and incorrectly. The event will end around 6:30pm. Thank you for notifying us!

    Hi there - when I got the email for this, it said this event is from 5:30 to 8:30. Is this correct (is it really 3 hours?) or is this a typo? (I ask because if it's till 8:30, I've got a scheduling conflict!)
