Aloha Editor at jQuery Conference in San Francisco

The Aloha Editor leads to international attention. I had the chance to present Aloha Editor at jQuery Conference, from April 16th to April 17th 2011, in San Francisco.


New features of jQuery 1.6, JQuery UI, jQuery mobile and interesting new technologies about jQuery and Javascript were the main topics of the conference in San Francisco. Special attention was paid to jQuery mobile, which should have been released in January. According to Adam Sontag, jQuery team member, a new release will be published within the next two months.

A device detection for jQuery mobile led to many discussions. The adaption of many parameters, like screen size, capacity of the browser or bandwidth would be essential for it. These adaptations should be made by software engineers or designers – not by jQuery mobile. jQuery mobile seems to be more appropriate for iPad as jQuery UI. When creating a mobile site, a particular implementation would fit best. The optimization for different mobile devices should be done with scalable CSS3 with the viewport metatag.

Approximately 600 guests visited the conference. Big attention was paid to the presentation of Paul Irish. He was talking about his CSS3 experiences with the HTML5 Boilerplate and the comfort of Chrome DevTools.

I could also inspire the audience with the presentation about the Aloha Editor. The easy copy/paste function that is known for Microsoft Office was highly appreciated.

The next Aloha Editor Devloper Confernce from 6th to 8th June 2011 will be in San Francisco. Some developers like Richard Worth or Scott Gonzales have already subscribed for the conference in Hacker Dojo, Mountain View.
