Joe will be discussing the slick mobile micro-framework, XUI, which you can use to build out mobile websites or even mobile webapps where the targeted device is running a reasonable build of Webkit (namely iPhone, Android, and WebOS). Popular libraries like jQuery are a bit large in size and contain loads of cross-browser code that is irrelevant in most mobile devices. XUI is only 3kb and can provide you with a large enough toolkit to get almost any job done. Joe will introduce the library and how you can start using it right now.
Alex Sexton is Labs Engineer at Austin’s own Bazaarvoice, is a co-host of the infamous yayQuery podcast and a contributor to a number of open source projects, including XUI.
