The talks went really well – we each gave a quick 10 minute presentation on a topic that interested us and finished up with some Q&A. The individual talks were as follows:
- Getting Loaded (All about network performance and file loading) – by Nate Koechley of YUI.
- Meta-Language Frameworks (Talking about the abstractions provided by frameworks) – by Andrew Dupont of Prototype.
- Real World Accessibility (A quick examination of the upcoming ARIA specification) – by Becky Gibson of IBM and Dojo.
- Performance and Testing (Looking at various performance analysis and testing techniques) – by John Resig of jQuery.
