In this session, we will explore the ideas behind the Enyo framework, a new JavaScript framework that takes the ideas of encapsulation and reusable code objects into the web application and mobile worlds. We will also explore the ecosystem of new libraries build on the Enyo core, especially the Onyx user-interface system which was designed to be beautiful and usable across multiple platforms.

This session is sponsored by HP

Dave Freeman is in the running for elder statesman of Developer Relations. Few on the team can match his length of time alive, let alone claim to have seen, nay, heard of, the ancient computer systems he has been exposed to in his career. Dave has been “in computers” and networking since 1982 when he first hooked up his VIC-20 to Compuserve at the blistering pace of 300bps. An expert troubleshooter, he has a broad knowledge pool from which to draw. Prior to becoming a Developer Relations SWAT Engineer, he worked for IBM as a technical enablement specialist, Tivoli as a level 2 technical support specialist, Dell as an Optiplex system test engineer, and various IT consulting gigs sprinkled between them. An epiphany in 2009 (webOS) led Dave to the fast-paced world of mobile application development. He currently specializes in Enyo, an object-oriented cross-platform JavaScript application development framework.

Thanks for the feedback, Ben. I agree the back and forth was a little disjointed. It was a decision I made after delivering the presentation at OWC a few days prior and listening to some other feedback. I am definitely looking at an Enyo-based slide delivery solution for the future.

Great overview of the project and the features that it has to offer. Dave I loved your passion for the project but the back and forth from browser to slide deck felt a little less rehearsed. I know how tight time can be so it might make more sense next time to either build the deck in enyo so that you never leave the browser or to just stick with screen-caps in the slide deck so you don’t get lost in the switch over.

Thanks again for the great talk.
