Adobe WebUp #9

This time, it was quite short (19:45 – 21:10) with only 2 presentation, both directly related to some cool js libraries.

First presentation was kept by a student(Andrei Oprea), that is an intern at Adobe RO. He presented an online version of tool that resembles with PowerPoint – http://piatra.jit.su/.
This tool is based on a node.js server with front-end developed using less, jQuery, bootstrap and require.js. About jQuery, less and bootstrap i heard also before, but require.js was the new stuff.

What’s require.js? It’s a dependency management library, that can help you a lot in terms of concurrency issues at load(we all had this problem at least once).

Adobe WebUp #3

And there it is was Adobe WebUp #3 and there were some great speakers that explained how to write javascript more efficiently and very, very quickly.

They presented:

  • GWT, described as a good solution for enterprise application
  • CoffeeScript, a tool that helps you write js using “shortcuts”.
  • BusinessCatalyst, an “Online Business solution” – as presented by Adobe, a solution for small companies that want to have a great online experience.(not ready for bigger online business solution – missing option to write your own modules or integrating with external server side services) – Presentation slides
  • And the coolest thing i ever seen “Debugging Mobile WebSites & Apps”, where they presented Adobe Shadow, an end to end solution for debugging on webkit based mobile device tool, based on weinre. – Presentation slides

Also they allowed other companies to present open positions (not only in Adobe) – how cool is that?

I strongly advise to keep an eye for the WebUp presentations on myadobe.ro as they intend to present other cool topics in next editions.
