With the upcoming 1.7 release, The Dojo Toolkit is beginning to introduce major structural and architectural changes in the toolkit, setting the path for their new major 2.0 release due in 2012.
These fundamental changes to the architecture and technologies underpinning the toolkit will dramatically change how we write Dojo applications in the future, bringing with it huge benefits in performance, cross-library compatibility and support for mobile platforms.
In this presentation, I'll be walking through these changes, explaining the benefits and how it'll impact developers. I'll also be providing migration tips to help you start taking advantage of these benefits in your application today, based upon my experience using Dojo 1.7 on the Watson project.
This talk will be technical in nature, aiming at developers and team leads who are using the toolkit in their products or on client engagements.
