    If we are interested in both sessions that are happening at the same time, will there be a way to get video of the session we missed?

    Any chance of you talking about how to minimize the Slider control?

    Reason being, the Slider control, if used only, is the 1 control that requires more libraries/includes than any other widget.

    Meaning, for those of us that use JQuery JUST for the Slider control, we need to download nearly 30kb of GZIP/Compressed JavaScript just to use the control :(

    @Nick – Not sure if there will be any particular talks about the Slider Control.

    But better yet the jQuery UI team will be in attendance and you can bring your concerns to them personally. Come find me at the conference and I’ll put you in contact with the right person.

    Hope to see you there.

    Sorry for posting this here, but some people are using the jQuery site to enhance their “SEO”.
    Look here: http://docs.jquery.com/How_jQuery_Works
    Right before the title “Launching Code on Document Ready”

    I don’t have an username for editing the site, but someone can delete the information.

    Again, sorry for the inconvenience.

    Unfortunately I will not be able to attend but I would gladly pay for video of the talks.

  7. Wish I could attend but sadly I can’t. After the conference you guys should post up a video or atleast an article about some of the major points of the conference.

    @Ralph – thanks. I really want to see the session on the new templating engine, but it’s very hard to skip Nicholas Zakas talking about high performance javascript.

    I’m sure I’m not the only one who would pay for DVDs of the sessions we missed.

    Would even be interesting to have them all on DVD since not everybody is able to attend to a conference held at another continent!

    It was a super conference. I’d like to post some feedback through the appropriate channels, but I neglected to record what those channel(s) is/are. Can anyone help me out?
