There are lots of buzzwords these days. Let’s pull apart some of these popular libraries and technologies and figure out what problems they solve and what problems we’re left to solve on our own. Let’s also look into out how to make this all work the way that we want… in all the browsers that we want. We’re not talking about performing magic; we’re talking about setting expectations and realities. The talk will cover some implementation details about some of these new technologies, but will more importantly offer a framework for thinking about next year’s buzzwords too.

The talk will take place at  Microsoft Austin Office from 5:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m on February 13, 2012.
