YUI: Open Hours Thurs Feb 17th

By YUI TeamFebruary 14, 2011

The next YUI: Open Hours will be this Thursday, Feb 17th.

Implementation focus: fanity.com

You may be familiar with Yvo Schaap's work from this "In the Wild" post from 2009. He's been working with YUI for years now, and has made the switch to YUI 3 with his latest site fanity.com.fanity.com home page

Give it a whirl with the guest account (email: guest@fanity.com password: fanity).

Eric F, Ryan Grove, and I will have Yvo on the call to talk about his experience building the site. Some topics we expect to cover:

  • Moving from YUI 2 to YUI 3
  • Choosing YUI
  • Modules, OOP, etc in the YUI environment
  • Linking the backend and frontend
  • The pitfalls he encountered
  • And of course, let's look at the code!

One nice detail I'd like to have a look at is their implementation of YUI's new AutoComplete widget.fanity.com's autocomplete UI
