Just a quick note to let y'all know about a new video course available for jQuery UI. Ben Fhala released a set of videos for Packt covering jQuery UI. I had the pleasure of doing a tech review on the videos a few months back and I thought they were pretty well done. I haven't really talked much about jQuery UI lately but I've got a lot of respect for it. You can find more details about the video product here and watch a sample below.
I just ran across a template that had an interesting typo. Here is an example.
This is a quick sample based on a request from a reader. They have a form that is loaded with a dynamic value in the query string. They were curious if there was a simple way to pass along the query string data along with the form post data. There's a couple different ways of handling this. Here is my version.
Just a quick note for those of you with a bit of OCD. Visit http://santashelper.dvs.com/ and play the little gift building game for a few minutes. Get up to 5000 gifts and the company behind the game (DVS) will donate a buck to Toys for Tots. This won't take more than a few minutes, and you can stop playing whenever you want, honest.
Just a quick note that an article I wrote for DZone, An Overview of Mobile Debugging Techniques – Part One, is now live. I wrote this a few months ago but it finally went live today. I'll be doing a followup later this month.
File this under the "Yet Another Thing Probably Obvious to Everyone But Me" folder, but have you ever seen (index) in the Chrome Dev Tools console and wonder what in the heck it was?
Welcome to the final blog post on delaying Edge Animate animations. I'm saying final just because I can't believe how such a simple thing has turned into so many different blog posts, so many different variations, and so many different fun diversions. Most likely because I said this will be the final post, someone will discover some other interesting opportunity and I'll have to write a part 5. But hey - that's the fun part about being a developer, right? Before we start though, please be sure you've read the earlier posts. I'll link to them at the bottom.
A few weeks ago a reader asked if I had ever designed a quiz for jQuery Mobile. While I had not, I spent some time thinking about how a quiz could be designed as well as how a generic library could help automate it. I've built a demo I'd like to share with folks. It is definitely "First Draft" (but hey, it lints!) so feel free to tear it apart and suggest improvements.
If you are a Creative Cloud subscriber, be sure to make note of the update to Flash Professional today. Despite being listed as a "Bug Fixes" update, this is actually a quite significant update as it now includes the ability to natively create HTML5 Canvas animations. This is done via the CreateJS library.
