Announcing a new Meetup for The Online ColdFusion Meetup!

What“Using jQuery Mobile for your Next Web Application”, with Andy Matthews

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.

DURATION: Approx. 1 hour
Meeting will be recorded. URL will be posted after meeting at

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.
