Unobtrusive Javascript with Rails

With the rise of Ajax and web sites that rely heavily on JavaScript what happens when a user comes along using a screen reader or mobile device that wouldn't know an alert(); from a banana. This session will explain the issues that we face in this area and discusses techniques to ensure that you can still serve up rich content without excluding users, all from one code base. Note: While the discussion of the issues and techniques surrounding this topic are not specific to any language, all demonstrations and server side code in this session will be using Ruby on Rails and while it is not necessary to be an expert, a passing knowledge of Rails would be helpful.
