MooTools at FOSDEM: Video

Written By Christoph Pojer, on Monday, February 15th 2010, 10:59am

Hello everyone,

I’m really excited and pleased to announce that my presentation “MooTools as a General Purpose Application Framework” which I delivered at the FOSDEM is now available on YouTube.

If you are not able to watch the HD-Version you can download the slides here.

Thanks again to the FOSDEM team for inviting me and for giving us such a big platform to present the MooTools project. If I could name one thing that I miss already about Brussels I would certainly say the waffles…

If you enjoyed this presentation and you want me or another developer from the MooTools Core Team to present at your conference feel free to contact us.

    I’m using MooTools for my new Adobe AIR application and the Class system came very handy, and of course the other main features, like Hash.

    The only thing I disagree with the presesntation is that it may encourage developers, to start writing code without learning JS itself, this can be a small problem, but when it runs on a server, it can be very dangerous, so in my opinion:

    First the basics, than the joy.

    @Tibor that is how it works nowadays. A lot of people do not actually learn JavaScript before starting to use it. MooTools helps you because it hides the bad parts of JavaScript and encourages you to use the good parts. As MooTools, and any JavaScript library for that matter, try to make it easier for you to develop applications, they also make it easier to use the language to produce great output. In the long term however you will have to learn JavaScript and from my experience it is easier for most people to learn both MooTools and JavaScript together at the same time.
