Presenter: Keith Bingman
Title: Twitter Flight
But is this really the right approach? Does the highly successful MV* pattern, taken from the server-side framework world, work within the confines of the browser? Sometimes building these applications is harder than it should be.
There is another lighter weight solution few people talk about: Twitter Flight. Designed as a collection of event-driven, stand-alone components, it is both highly flexible and scalable.
A simple set of rules allows Flight to fit where many other frameworks cannot. Each component of the application can either emit or receive an event, but has no other connection to any part of the application. It offers structure, but does not dictate everything about the application and is an alternative to consider when developing or updating any front-end application.

Title: Audio for the Masses
Where there's mankind, there's music. However, both music schools and musical instruments are expensive, and hard to get access to. But, maybe we can use the power of the web to bring music to more people than ever.
What happens when you give powerful tools to people who've never been exposed to the same culture that you've grown with? Can we turn consumers into creators?
