Zepto! slides from my JSConf 2011 presentation

May 6th, 2011

Here are my slides from JSConf 2011 in Portland, Oregon. I was talking about Zepto, my micro-framework, WebKit-only (works on Firefox too, though) clone of the jQuery API, and why I think that Micro-Frameworks and Micro-Libraries are better suited for the mobile Web than traditional, monolithic libraries, like, Prototype or jQuery.

The talk also marks the announcement of microjs, a website for discovering small and to-the-point JavaScript libraries.

You can download the slides as PDF (24MB). (View the video on slide #7)

P.S. Of course, just the slides don’t give you the whole picture—there will be a video of the talk at some point, too!
