I know jQuery. Now what?

I gave this talk: I know jQuery. What now? at jQuery UK 2013, but instead of my usual approach of post-it explosion on my desk, I wrote a post first, and created the slides from the post. So here is my (fairly unedited) quasi-ramble on how I used jQuery, and how I’m looking at where I’m using native browser technology.

Excellent blog post with full of tips, snippets and examples by Remy Sharp

SSSlider – Super Simple Slider

Motivation

Another slider plugin? Yes! The motivation for the development of SSSlider came from the difficulty in finding a simple plugin, focused on showing content. On the web there are many sliders made for images and adapted to receive other content. In this case SSSlider is just for the content.

Important information and user’s license

This plugin is in ALPHA! Bugs can be found and if you fix one, send us a message. The ideal is to make a fork on GitHub, correct and send a pull request.
As for the license, it does not exist. You can do whatever you want with the code. No credit is needed. Just make good use and get to put on the air, send me the link to take a look and see if you did right!

Applying the plugin

The plugin requires a simple HTML markup. Just follow the example below, styling according to your preference.

Auto-Save User’s Input In Your Forms With HTML5 and Sisyphus.js

This article is the third in our new series that introduces new, useful and freely available tools and techniques, developed and released by active members of the Web design community.
The first article covered PrefixFree; the second introduced Foundation, a responsive framework that helps you build prototypes and production code.
This time, we’re presenting Sisyphus.js, a library developed by Alexander Kaupanin to provide Gmail-like client-side drafts and a bit more.

Cross Platform Mobile Apps with HTML, Java and PhoneGap

We had this excellent presentation tonight at Full Sail University by the Adobe Evangelist Team:

  • Greg Wilson [@gregsramblings]
  • Christophe Coenraets [@ccoenraets]
  • Holly Schinsky [@devgirlfl]

They showed us how to create a cross mobile platform application in seconds with PhoneGap using either xCode IDE for iPhone and iPad or Eclipse for Android.

The presentation was transmitted through Adobe Connect and I believe it was also recorded. If so, I will post the URL here as soon as I get it.

Here are some photos:

ColdFusion MeetUp: Discover jQuery using the jQuery Matrix, with Phillip Senn

Announcing a new Meetup for The Online ColdFusion Meetup!

WhatDiscover jQuery using the jQuery Matrix, with Phillip Senn

Our 12pm (US ET) talk on Thursday August 4 will be “Discover jQuery using the jQuery Matrix”, with Phillip Senn.

TOPIC DESCRIPTION: (provided by the speaker)

Are you new to jQuery, or still learning the syntax? If so, Phillip Senn has created the jQuery matrix. In it, he lists every command, along with a corresponding example. In this session, Phillip will offer a tour of the matrix and show its purpose and value.

A challenge with learning jQuery is that you really need to know JavaScript first: but then a challenge in learning JavaScript is that it’s not clear what aspects are replaced by jQuery. The  matrix categorizes every jQuery property and method, and assigns a priority to each: Introductory, Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced and “Do not use”. Phillip will explain these, and this interactive way to explore the library. We’ll start with a quick tour of the related HTML matrix, and then bridge into how to develop with JavaScript and jQuery.

ColdFusion MeetUp: Using jQuery Mobile for your Next Web Application, with Andy Matthews

 

Who’s hosting? Charlie Arehart

Our 6pm (US ET) talk on Thursday Apr 28 will be part two of two in the day from different speakers, but both on JQuery Mobile. Second up at 6pm will be “Using jQuery Mobile for your Next Web Application”, with Andy Matthews. At noon Ray Camden will have offered a preliminary talk (details in its separate announcement).

TOPIC DESCRIPTION: (provided by the speaker)

jQuery is everywhere. It’s a JavaScript framework, it’s an application development framework, and now it’s a mobile framework. Built around the rules of progressive enhancement jQuery Mobile is a mobile application framework for the next version of mobile optimized websites. In this session Andy will discuss background research done by the jQuery Mobile team, concepts used in the development of jQuery Mobile, and of course lots of code and demos. If you’re on the fence about whether to use jQuery Mobile, this session will answer all your questions.

MEETING URL: http://experts.acrobat.com/cfmeetup/
DURATION: Approx. 1 hour
Meeting will be recorded. URL will be posted after meeting at recordings.coldfusionmeetup.com

SPEAKER: (provided by the speaker)

I have been working as a web and application developer for 12 years, with experience in a wide range of industries, and a skillset which includes graphic design, programming, business strategy and planning, and marketing. Throughout my career I have been privileged to work on projects which interfaced with industry giants such as Craigslist, written code that allowed Enterprise level sales teams to quickly and efficiently build presentations for their clients, and stayed current on trends in the marketplace by helping previous employers transition to newer, more effective, coding habits and standards. I have received certifications, spoken to users at conferences around the country, and developed software for the open source community.

WHEN: Thurs. Apr 28, 6:00pm US ET (UTC/GMT-4)

What time is that for you? The following link shows [what the time would be for you]. Here’s [another option] that shows the time as US ET, and lets you choose your city from the list offered to see what time that is in your own timezone.

RECORDING: As always, the meeting will be recorded, and the recording URL will be posted after the meeting at http://recordings.coldfusionmeetup.com.

DOWNLOADABLE RECORDINGS:
In addition to the streaming recording posted immediately after the meeting, we now also post downloadable recordings (FLV, MP3, MP4, and WMV) usually within a few days after the meeting, also offered as a link from the recordings page.

LOGGING IN: When you login to the Connect room (the experts.acrobat.com/cfmeetup link above) to view the meeting, PLEASE USE THE “LOGIN AS GUEST” option, and USE YOUR NAME, but do NOT attempt to use your meetup.com username/password or any Connect account. Just sign in as a guest.

RSVP, but only if coming: We do appreciate folks RSVPing if they plan to come (using the link on this email or at the meetup site), though it’s not mandatory and it’s not a commitment. But there’sno need to RSVP if you can’t make it let alone explain why you can’t. With over 2,400 members, no worries. :-)

FEEDBACK/MEETING DISCUSSION: Members will receive an email after the meeting or can click a link on the event page to offer. Note also the meeting-specific discussion area there at the bottom, in addition to the one-chance feedback feature on the right. Feel free to engage in discussions about the meeting topic.

ADD THIS TO YOUR CALENDAR: Want to add this event to your own personal calendar? After logging in here, you’ll see an option at the top of the event page, just below the event title,  saying, “Add to my calendar”, which offers calendar downloads for Outlook, iCal, Google, and Yahoo calendars. (Note that the calendar entry created will show the event taking 2 hours. That’s a default that meetup.com has chosen, which I can’t change. The meetings are generally about an hour, though often go as much as 30-45 minutes longer with Q&A and chat.)
