The SproutCore framework has evolved over the past five years to be an extremely high-performance framework that focuses on making it possible to build native-like applications in the browser.
This means handling problems like working with extremely large data-sets, inconsistent connectivity, and complex DOMs. Lately, it has meant figuring out how to properly use new browser features that can make a big difference to perceived performance, like hardware acceleration.
In this talk, Yehuda will cover some of the techniques that SproutCore has used historically to enable extremely complex applications to perform well in the browser, as well as what new technologies the team is looking at to leverage the latest browser technologies in building compelling content for the web.
Yehuda Katz is a member of the SproutCore, Ruby on Rails and jQuery Core Teams; during the daytime, he works as a framework architect at Strobe. Yehuda is the co-author of the best-selling jQuery in Action, the upcoming Rails 3 in Action, and is a contributor to Ruby in Practice. He spends most of his time hacking on open source—his main projects, along with others, like Rubinius, Thor, Handlebars and Moneta—or traveling the world doing evangelism work.
