About This Event
In February 2008, the YUI Library
and the Yahoo Pattern Library
turn two years old.
. And when you want to pull additional functionality off the shelf, YUI is there for you with more than 30 a la carte components that range in complexity from a simple JSON Utility
to the powerful DataTable
and Rich Text Editor
. When big established brands like CBS Marketwatch, Southwest Airlines, Northwest Airlines, IndyCar.com, and others join Yahoo in implementing YUI
, you know you've got a library with great traction, momentum, and critical mass. And when you see young companies like Gaia Online
, and OurStory
building the future of their business with YUI at the foundation, you know what motivates us to keep improving the library every day.
The Yahoo Pattern Library is the outgrowth of a long history of work at Yahoo and elsewhere. Bill Scott, now at NetFlix, took the Pattern Library "open" alongside YUI back in 2005, and it's now under the stewardship of Christian Crumlish. But the library really draws from the creativity, inspiration, and effort of the full community of user-experience specialists at Yahoo, as well as from those of you in the community who work with Christian to improve upon and interate the patterns. Christian is hard at work burnishing the existing patterns and creating new ones, and 2008 looks like another great year for this resource.
