10 Things I Learned While Interning at YUI

For eight months, I had the opportunity to intern with the YUI Team at Yahoo, while I was completing my engineering degree. Today, I’d like to share the top ten things that I learned from my experience with YUI.

A Bit of Background

The YUI Team is primarily responsible for the development and maintenance of the YUI Library. The library is a collection of user-interface components, class management tools, and utilities written in JavaScript and CSS that make it easier for developers to create web applications. Unlike other libraries, YUI is not just about DOM manipulation; it has a rich set of class management tools and a robust event system that makes it easier to develop in JavaScript.

My Comment

I am trying to dig into various possibilities of incorporating some or major elements of YUI into my WordPress themes, in particular by utilizing what I call the “rock-solid” and “most comprehensive” as well as “robust” Hybrid WordPress Theme Framework by Justin Tudlock.

Well, I followed Justin not just now, but since he first released his theme called “Options Theme” which far before all other plugins and hooks were developed.

This particular entry/ article is important for me to follow it up in order to make use the Hybrid Theme and then YUI-fy the theme framework. The outcome of YUI-fying the Hybrid Theme is what I call “My Papua Theme Framework” or “WP WP Framework”. By the way, the Double “WP”s stand for “West Papua WordPress” or “WordPress West Papua”.
