Kris Borchers The New Hotness in jQuery UI

The jQuery UI team has been working really hard lately to not only update the website, add an API site, and fix bugs and further stabilize the library, but to also add a number of new, and highly requested widgets. In this talk, we will take a brief look at the status of the jQuery UI project and its planned roadmap going forward. From there, we'll dive a little deeper into the new widgets that were introduced in 1.9, then we'll take a quick look at what's coming in 1.10, 1.11 and 2.0 and hopefully give you a clear picture of where the project is headed and how you could possibly jump in and help us out.

Julian Aubourg Ask Julian about XHR

Think you know everything about $.ajax()? Think again! Prefilters, transports, converters: there are so many ways you can hook into jQuery's network architecture and make your life that much easier. Illformed JSON you have no way to fix on the backend? Solved! Need to load a stylesheet and wait for it to be loaded? Solved! Need to parse error messages automagically? Solved! If you're using $.ajax() on a daily basis, then that's a session you don't wanna miss.

Dan Heberden Getting In Sync With Async

Asynchronous code is hard. Especially when it needs to happen synchronously. We'll cover a great solution to this problem using jQuery's Deferreds and Callbacks API. We'll also take a look at how flow control and asynchronous operations can be easily managed and utilized to their fullest potential.
