Thread: Politics at TAE?

  1. #1

    Default Politics at TAE?

    I'm really not trying to stir up trouble, but ...

    The description of this Tutorial at TAE is:
    JavaScript Library Overview
    Which covers:
    all the modern, open source, JavaScript frameworks
    Specifically:
    Prototype, Dojo, jQuery, and Yahoo UI
    Is this fallout from the GPL re-license?

    Sincerely hoping not,
    --dan

    Yes, that's not good. No mention of Ext while Dojo is still creaking along!

    Might be, might not.

    This reminded me of the "Secrets of Javascript Libraries" panel [email protected] SXSW.

    We set out to discuss the behind-the-scenes nitty-gritty code that powers the universal features of the most popular JavaScript libraries.

    In that ocassion the libraries discussed were Prototype, Dojo, Scriptaculous, jQuery. People asked John Resig why ExtJs was not included, his answer:

    I invited Jack Slocum - he didn't accept. *shrug*
    Something similar might have happened, who knows...

    I personally Emailed jack and go no response. :-\ he's a busy guy. that said, there is an ajax expo about an hour away from me this september. I'm hoping that Aaron Conran (who lives close as well) wil be going. I think it would be nice to have presence at these things. I'd be more than willing to donate some time/etc to provide a level of support.

    interesting. Using Resig's graph, adding Extjs to the criteria:

    To be fair, try adding the word 'javascript' after extjs in that search. Or, for that matter, remove javascript from all of them and then it seems more accurate.

    It's real hard to analyse trends with ext js since one of the most popular search terms (according to google analytics) is just "ext" with no "js". However "ext" by itself in the search terms could be completely unrelated to ext js.
