According to LinkedIn's engineering site, the app itself (sans native wrapper like PhoneGap) was built with backbone.js and underscore.js: http://engineering.linkedin.com/mobile/linkedin-ipad-using-local-storage-snappy-mobile-apps
Guess how much of LinkedIn’s new iPad app is actually mobile web and not native. Go ahead — guess. We’ve had a lot of fun asking people to guess this over the past couple days. They’ll start with 40 percent and edge up to 70 percent, but no one comes close to the real figure: 95 percent. Yes, only one screen in the entire LinkedIn iPad app is actually native. The rest is good ol’ HTML5-based mobile web technology, running in the browser and leani...

Interesting list of confirmed/busted JavaScript performance myths gleaned from the jsPerf and Browserscope projects (which allow the general public to contribute JavaScript test cases that are then run "in the wild" on various browsers--what a cool idea!).

Really informative presentation about how JS engines work, with a focus on performance, by David Mandelin. He also has a nice summary on his blog: http://blog.mozilla.com/dmandelin/2011/06/16/know-your-engines-at-oreilly-velocity-2011/
This talk will help JavaScript developers make their programs fast by popping the hood and explaining in concrete, intuitive terms how JavaScript engines run code. Developers will also learn about g...

This might be interesting to anyone thinking about using Node or MongoDB in production... Fog Creek (basically the same guys behind Stack Overflow) is using both technologies as part of their new task management product, Trello (which is great, btw).

Some great PR for the Node community (as well as non-native mobile app developers).

"...it's silly and irrational to complain that a framework isn't good at completing task A, when it was only ever designed to do task B. Node.js is extraordinarily good at what it was designed to do- so don't rant that it's bad at something else."

This is one of the best "Intro to Node.js" and "Intro to Server-Side Non-blocking I/O" presentations I've seen, given by an objective, experienced enterprise Java/C/C++ developer who isn't getting caught up in the hype. Even if you don't care about Node you'll benefit from learning about the drawbacks to the multi-threaded servers we've all been using for years and how single-threaded servers (Node being just one implementation) can be faster and more efficient. You also learn about how streaming and HTTP chunking works, something every web dev should understand. Lastly, it's a totally honest look at not just the good parts of Node but the parts of it (and JavaScript) that suck.

I’ve been developing for quite a while and in quite a few languages. Somehow though, I’ve always seemed to fall back to Java when doing my own stuff – maybe partly from habit, partly because it has in my opinion the best open source selection out there, and party because I liked its mix of features and performance. Specifically though, in the web arena things have been moving fast and furious with new languages, approaches, and methods like RoR, ...

I had read up on that for a previous project, but never used it. What's your current project? Anything fun?
