Please join our live launch event for Wijmo 5, our brand new generation of JavaScript Controls! With the launch of Wijmo 5 we’ll introduce a new HTML5/JavaScript product that takes full advantage of all the latest and greatest web technologies without making compromises to support legacy browsers. This webcast will focus on the evolution of JavaScript controls, from jQueryUI-based widgets to Wijmo 5.

We are hosting two live events to accommodate for a wide array of timezones. We will also publish the recorded video when finished.


Abstract


JavaScript has evolved from a tool used for complementing mostly static web pages to the language of choice for writing applications that run everywhere, from the desktop to tablets to phones. Big parts of this evolution include improvements to the language itself (ECMAScript 5), better browsers (evergreen), better frameworks (like AngularJS). Another big part is the introduction of controls, which allow developers to encapsulate and re-use chunks of logic and UI to create quality applications quickly and easily.

We will focus on the evolution of JavaScript controls, from jQueryUI-based widgets to Wijmo 5. Modern JavaScript controls blend the best of JavaScript with tried-and-true component features from XAML, including real properties, eventing, localization, data-binding, control templates, MVVM, support, and more.
