It has been a busy several months since the release of AmplifyJS 1.0.0 on June 14, 2011. We are pleased to hear many of you starting to use the library in your applications.
We are continuing to work on the feature set for the release of AmplifyJS 1.1.0 and as we do so we’ve seen numerous presentations and contributions being made from the community that we’d like to share.
We are encouraged that numerous talks across the world are starting to list AmplifyJS as a tool to help build modern web applications. The following are some of the talks we are aware of.
- Aaron Powell gave nice overview of the various client-side frameworks available today in his TechEd AU talk entitled Chasing the Evolving Web. You can view the video from his talk on the Tech Ed website.
- Jim Cowart and Alex Robson gave a great presentation at devLINK entitled Client Focused Web Stacks – Alternatives To Server Side Patterns. You can grab their slides and code from their GitHub account. Jim and Alex have used all 3 components of AmplifyJS alongside other client-side libraries such as KnockoutJS and Postal.js.
- Todd Anglin also presented at the devLINK conference and shared what HTML5 and CSS3 Techniques You Can Use Today . Todd mentioned the AmplifyJS Store component as a component to abstract all the cross-browser concerns when dealing with persistent client storage.
- Elijah Manor spoke on Extending Your jQuery Web Application with AmplifyJS at both devLINK and jQuery Conference Boston. During his talk he took a simple web application and slowly added the 3 components of AmplifyJS.
If you’ve given a talk or you’ve heard a talk that has mentioned AmplifyJS that isn’t listed above we’d love to hear about it! Not only are we interested, but we want to publicly thank those that are promoting this library!
In addition to presentations, the AmplifyJS library has found it’s way into many of the mainstream projects as a bundled extension. Some of these include…
If you know of any other AmplifyJS extensions or if you’d like to help make it available please let us know.
A great sign that a project is healthy is if there are outside contributions. In addition to the contributions we saw before we launched the 1.0.0 release, we have also seen the following step forward and help AmplifyJS to be a better library.
- Adrien Lavoillotte from Paris, France submitted two pull requests, a patch and a new feature!
- Alexander Zeitler from Karlsruhe, Germany submitted a pull request to update the Visual Studio Intellisense VSDOC for the amplify.store component.
Thanks again Adrien and Alexander. We hope that you’ll continue to make AmplifyJS better and we encourage others to contribute as well.
