There is no off-season: NFL.com’s move to YUI

Published 14 January 2012

Back in November I gave a talk at YUIConf about the NFL’s move from Prototype to YUI. Shamefully late, I present my slides from the event minus a certain logo.

Slides that simply regurgitate an authors notes are anathema to me, so they may not make a lot of sense out of context. However, my presentation should be available shortly on YUI Theatre.

There is no off-season: NFL.com’s move to YUI

For its dev team, the NFL season is a breakneck-paced stream of new features, last-minute sponsorships and custom UIs. Developer Ryan Cannon describes the NFL’s transition from Prototype to YUI 3, and demonstrates how YUI’s JavaScript infrastructure has improved site performance, reduced development time and improved collaboration.
