Let me introduce you to the YUI3 App Framework
Front-end heavy applications grow more and more complex. As frontend developers we need strategies to overcome those complexities.
In this talk we'll see, how the YUI3 App Framework assists us in doing so: It helps us writing structured and thus maintainable code. Of course we will also have a look at the drawbacks of the framework and when you should not use it.

Hands on Sencha Touch 2
Sencha Touch 2, a high-performance HTML5 mobile application framework, is the cornerstone of the Sencha HTML5 platform. Built for enabling world-class user experiences, Sencha Touch 2 is the only framework that enables developers to build fast and impressive apps that work on iOS, Android, BlackBerry, Kindle Fire, and more.
Using the case of webdoc.com, we will present the challenges and the solutions we chose to build a scalable HTML-5 based social media platform. The main challenge was to provide a sleek and powerful client-side JS WebApp that allows users to mix web content such as video from YouTube, sounds from SoundClouds and interactive widget such as Google maps and polls through drag & drops in a social media environment.

As our applications begin to reach a more and more international audience and as Unicode gains interesting characters like the good old U+1F4A9, the times where developers could cheat their way using ISO-8859-1 are slowly coming to an end.
But what does it mean to go Unicode? What support does JS provide? What do you have to keep in mind as you exit the cosy world of what-you-think-is-ISO-8859-1-but-likely-isn't? What is the one huge flaw in what JS claims to be Unicode support?
