EnyoJS as a Framework for Great Justiceby Blaine Bublitz and Ryan Rix

Enyo is one of the many Mobile JavaScript Frameworks that developers have to choose from.  Enyo 1.0 was built to power the interface for webOS devices, but version 2.0 was redesigned to work across most modern browsers and recently open sourced under the Apache License, Version 2.0.  Highlights include being object-oriented (making it highly extensible), having a powerful widget set (called onyx), small size (25kb at core), and a community gallery (consisting of many extra features and components).  Many Enyo apps have been deployed to all mobile platforms through the use of PhoneGap.  In this talk, Ryan and Blaine will introduce everyone to the basics of Enyo and show off some of the things they have done with the framework.
