Introduction to YUI

Working with YUI

The Introduction to YUI training course introduces front-end developers to the popular YUI framework.

The Introduction to YUI course begins with a quick review of the foundational concepts required to be successful with YUI, like model architectures, controllers, events, etc. Then, the YUI training course explores YUI’s AMD module system. With the foundation laid, the course then transitions its focus to implement and using Core YUI modules, as well as the modules found in the YUI Gallery.

The Introduction to YUI finishes up with an in-depth examination of how to develop your own YUI modules, including how to incorporate MVC design patterns into your YUI architecture.
