  • Session accepted for Entwicklercamp 2013: Dojo 1.8 and AMD

    I just received confirmation that my session submission for next years developer conference Entwicklercamp 2013 in Gelsenkirchen, Germany (11th - 13th of March) got accepted.

    The session is about the new Dojo toolkit 1.8 that we have already used in a customer project since its release in August 2012.
    Sessions at Entwicklercamp are held in German language, so here is the translated abstract and the original one in German.

    Dojo 1.8 and AMD

    The session provides an introduction to web application development with version 1.8 of the Dojo toolkit.

    It covers available UI elements for web and mobile development, declarative and programmatic web ui design as well as the new AMD module system, that can be used to build highly modular web applications.

    With short demos, additional tools will be presented, that can be used to impress customers and colleagues.

    Die Session gibt einen Einstieg in die Webapplikationsentwicklung mit dem Dojo Toolkit in der Version 1.8.

    Behandelt werden die zur Verfügung stehenden grafischen Elemente für Web und Mobile, deklarative und programmatische Weboberflächengestaltung sowie das neue AMD-Modulsystem, mit dem sich äußerst modulare Applikationen aufbauen lassen.

    Im Rahmen von Kurzdemos werden darüber hinaus noch weitere Tools vorgestellt, mit denen man Kunden und Kollegen zum Staunen bringen kann.

    sounds like an interesting topic assuming Dojo 1.8 will be part of 8.5.4?

    Yes, I hope so. But Dojo 1.8 can already be used in 8.5.3 with a REST API on the server (either via XPages or servlets). No need to wait for 8.5.4 or higher.

    For a clean approach, that would mean producing the whole UI on your own (e.g. no partial refresh, validators and JSF features).

    That gives you a lot of freedom (and responsibility of course).

    After you have created a small framework, development should not take much longer than using the standard XPages way.

    After all, it's only about developing cool web apps. The technology does not really matter. It's more a question of taste (look and feel of the UI, e.g. Dojo or Ext.js).
