YUI Weekly for February 22, 2014
Welcome to another week for YUI Weekly - the weekly roundup of news and announcements from the YUI team and the community! We've got some exciting news about the upcoming release, a great guest on this week's Roundtable, and a new batch of YUIConf videos!
We released the release candidate for YUI 3.15.0 on February 19th, notably containing a new loading API through
Y.require, additions to Promises, and a change to
ModelSync.Local's internal storage mechanism. We also got a lot of great contributions from the community during this release, so a big thank you to everyone who helped to make YUI better.
This week's Open Roundtable continued our YUI in the Wild series, where we chat with different folks from a variety of companies, who tell us about some cool things they've been doing with YUI, based on our past In the Wild blog posts.
For this week's guest, we had Daniel Stockman from Zillow come in to talk about how they began to integrate the d3 visualization library into their application. We talked about how to customize your own
d3 build, some ways of organizing an application using both
d3 and the YUI App Framework, and how Zillow is creating new build tools to improve developer productivity.
Zillow has a few of their tools that they use open-sourced on GitHub, so definitely check them out over there!
If your company or team is interested in being featured on the next YUI in the Wild, feel free to contact Andrew Wooldridge, our Community Engineer, and we can help you set up a time or discuss content!
The following YUIConf videos were released this week:

- John Lindal wrote a blog post on how he worked to migrate his application from YUI 2 to YUI 3. Check out the gallery modules that he created to help with that process, gallery-datetime and gallery-datetime-range
That's all for now - hope everyone has a great week, and get ready for the release of YUI 3.15.0!
