schedule Jul 23rd 03:55 - 04:15 PM place ESquire Hall

If you read this title and thought, "Meh, I’m a beginner and don’t write complex code to worry about that", or "My framework must be taking care of that no?", or "Huh? Whats all that about dude?", this session is just for you.

I’d like to talk to you about what memory leaks are, how they occur and, most importantly, why you should care. With JavaScript becoming ever so prominent, it’d be fun to get to know the common caveats and understand what happens under the hood a little better.

Outline/Structure of the Talk

I'd like to talk to you about -

What are memory leaks?

Where do they arise from?

Do you have any control over them? 

If so, how much?

How are they affecting you?

What do you do about it?

Learning Outcome

The aim is to have a look at how JavaScript deals with memory, learn what should we do to avoid memory leaks, and understand the workings of this language  a little better.

    Great proposal. Please update your proposal with links to slides and videos from past presentation. If you don't have them, please create a small trailer so we can understand your presentation skills.

      I will be documenting here, what I know about memory leaks with examples, to pique interest about the presentation. I'll continue writing about this topic every week and use these examples during the presentation. The presentation would be a summary and continuation of that series, highlighting certain areas that I think would be fun, informative and code for thought.

    You can find solutions to thousands of jQuery problems on the Internet in blog posts, StackOverflow answers, or on Github. The problem is, many of those answers and code snippets are very obsolete! The web development world of 2006 that jQuery was born into is very different than the world of 2015, and jQuery has evolved to keep up. Yet there are still features inside of jQuery that only remain because of compatibility concerns, not because they're a good idea in modern web development.

    This talk will discuss features of jQuery that are best to avoid if you want a fast web site or HTML app that works with the widest range of browsers--even browsers that haven't yet been released! You'll also learn how using some of these features can make it very hard to follow modern practices such as Responsive Design. For each feature, you'll learn the modern 2015 way to do each of these tasks.

    Kris Borchers - The jQuery Foundation - More than just jQuery

    60 Mins

    The jQuery Foundation is always working toward making the web accessible to everyone through our efforts in open source projects, standards and the web community. This talk will highlight many of the efforts we are currently focussed on and we'll also dive into some of the projects we've been working on with the community to give you an idea of current outcomes of those efforts and demonstrate some of the uses of those projects. Though jQuery and its related projects are still important to the web, this talk will focus more on the other efforts the jQuery Foundation is involved in that many may not know about.

    React JS challenges lot of conventional ideas in web development at the same time providing a simple model for web development. Lets start rethinking with components, virtual DOM, JSX and see how React really shines! In this talk we will take whirlwind tour of React JS. 

    We will be building an application based on Open Library API which will help us cover core features of React. At the end of session, we will have a complete app built using React.
