Ajax opened up completely new possibilities for the web, the javascript frameworks brought us the tools to realize them and now web technology is everywhere: Cloud computing brings our most used applications to the web while HTML5, AIR, Gears and other techniques bring web apps to our desktops. Smartphones are not just able to display full webpages with ease, they also allow us to build applications with all the functionality of their nativly built counterparts. The home electronics makers are preparing to put the web in our TV sets while media publishers are getting ready to give us the next generation musical albums, movies, TV series, magazines and books powered by the pillars of Web Technology: HTML, CSS and Javascript. And finally, Web Development comes to Øredev. During two days (November 4th and 5th) some of the most prolific authorities on everything Web will share their knowledge with you at Øredev.

JavaScript: from Birth to Closure

This presentation will give you a brief background to JavaScript, what it is and where it comes from. Then it will walk you through general pitfalls, best practices and more advanced topics such as object-orientation, scope and closures.

JavaScript: The Good Parts

In JavaScript there is a beautiful, highly expressive language that is buried under a steaming pile of good intentions and blunders. The best nature of JavaScript was so effectively hidden that for many years the prevailing opinion of JavaScript was that it was an unsightly, incompetent abomination. This session will expose the goodness in JavaScript, an outstanding dynamic programming language.

13:10 - 14:00

Even Faster Web Sites

Web 2.0 is adding more and more content to our pages, especially features that are implemented in Ajax. But our web applications are evolving faster than the browsers that they run in. In this session, Steve Souders discusses web performance best practices from his second book, Even Faster Web Sites. These time-saving techniques are used by the world's most popular web sites to create a faster user experience, increase revenue, and reduce operating costs.

14:15 - 15:05

The JSON Saga

JSON is a simple data interchange format. It is rare among standards in that minimalism was one of the principle goals of its design. Radical minimalism made it possible for JSON to compete successfully against entrenched, maximal standards. This is the true story of the origins of JSON, and how it overcame intolerance, inurement, and death threats to become the World Wide Web's favorite data interchange standard.

15:35 - 16:25

Taking web applications to the desktop with Adobe AIR

AIR is a runtime that enables web developers to build and deploy desktop applications on Mac, Windows and Linux operating systems. In this session we'll cover the capabilities of the AIR runtime and how to build an application using either HTML/AJAX or Flex. You'll learn how to use the File System, SQLite, Windowing and Menu APIs in your existing web applications and how to deploy AIR applications via the web for easy installation.

Building advanced business applications with the Dojo Toolkit

The Dojo Toolkit gives you very powerful tools to build complex applications without having to do a lot of groundwork. In this talk I will give you insight into the more advanced features of the Dojo Toolkit such as the data layers, Comet, user-interactive charting, advanced form handling and complex layouts. You will get an overview of the declarative and programatic approaches Dojo both supports and see how to get from sketchboard to result in an efficient and fast way.

Nikolai Onken
