Plans for Proman 3

In the next version of Proman, Proman3, I hope to make use of the following Rails plugins and gems:
From the videos released since May 2009 on Ryan Bates' RailsCasts, there are a few other interesting tools to try out, and I'll be checking out more of these over the next few weeks.

YUI in Proman

This last week or so I've been watching a lot of Yahoo! YUI Theatre videos on JavaScript, starting with Douglas Crockford's excellent five-part series Crockford on JavaScript and ending yesterday with Christian Heillman's inspiring talk on YQL and YUI. This has inspired me to explore how I can use YUI (a JavaScript library) in the next version of Proman (Proman 3) which will be needed for 2010-2011 allocation round in May. If it works out, there'll also be some new teaching material for next year's Web Applications module (EG-259).

Watch out for more posts on this topic as I get to grips with this stuff.
