I've come across multiple people lately who have been bitten by this so I thought a quick blog post would be useful for my readers. If you've recently upgraded your ColdFusion server or patched it, you may find some forms return an error when submitted. Here is an example:
Ok, maybe "poetic" is a bit much... but you can listen to my Nerd Radio interview here:
Ray Camden, Adobe Creative Cloud Evangelist, talks with us about his sessions at MAX covering topics like PhoneGap Build and web development tools.
Thanks to Leif and and Garth for inviting me!
This year was my second MAX as an employee and was both exciting - and pretty tiring. If you weren't able to make it though there is an easy way to catch what you missed.
Oddly, the last of my Adobe MAX sessions is available online now but none of my earlier ones. I assume they will show up in the next day or so. But for now, enjoy my eloquent presentation on the more advanced aspects of using PhoneGap Build. You can download the source code for the sample apps and slide deck as well.
Someone came up to me after my MAX session on web development debugging and asked for some advice on how to 'sell' unit testing to his clients. This was my response:
Simple. Tell the client you feel unit testing is so important that you're willing to talk about it with him face to face. In fact, you'll even fly him to your location. In order to save money though you're going to use a budget airline that skips testing.
Many moons ago I blogged about a proof of concept I built that allowed you to view Edge Inspect screen shots via a nice web interface. This was built in Node using the Express framework. I've finally gotten around to doing some updates to it as well as pushing it up to Github.
I've never understood the appeal of "unboxing videos". Don't get me wrong - I love to get new tech and I love the open it up and play with it. But watching someone else do that? Lame. But I just had to share my own personal experience with this. After my first MAX presentation today (demo assets will be posted tomorrow, sorry, this was far cooler), a woman walked up to me and handed me her "business card". Here is what she gave me:
If you are a PhoneGap users, hopefully you know about the various aspects of the Notification API. The Notification API allows for visual, audio, and tactile notifications. In this post I want to focus on the visual notifications and how they differ from the built in web view notifications.
For those who attended my PhoneGap presentation earlier this week (or those who just want to hear the sound of my silky-smooth almost Billy Dee Williams voice) you can view the recording at the URL below. Note that if you did not register for the event you will be asked to register before you can view it. To be clear, this is free.
For folks who want a copy of the demos I used, you can get the source code and the slide deck here: https://github.com/cfjedimaster/Introduction-to-PhoneGap
As always, thank you to everyone who showed up (apparently near 900) and I hope you enjoyed it.
