Just a quick note to announce the second part of my IndexedDB series has been released at NetTuts: Working with IndexedDB - Part 2. You can (and should) read the first part here. I had hoped to finish the series with just two parts, but I really felt like it made sense to break it up into three. IndexedDB is a fairly complex topic and I'm trying my best to make it simpler to understand. Definitely let me know what you think!
So, I promise, this is the last Behance API demo this week. I don't know why this has been on my mind so much, but, screw it, when inspiration strikes I just go along with it. For today's demo I'm going to show something a bit different - search by color.
While it isn't terribly obvious on the web site, cfObjective 2014 has opened their call for speakers. If you want to speak at what is easily one of the best web conferences out there, you have from now till November 1st to get your submissions in. Here are the details: Call for Speakers
Here are the sessions I've proposed:
- Using Web Components
- Moving to Production
If you want to actually see me speak on these topics, be sure to give me a vote, as well as the other topics you think are cool!
Today we officially launched PhoneGap 3.0 support for PhoneGap Build. You can read the blog post on it here: PhoneGap 3.0 Now Supported in PhoneGap Build Before you get started, there are a few things I want to call out.
Many months ago I participated in a tour where we showcased some of our initiatives to help make the web a better place. This involved our efforts with web standards as well as our Edge suite of tools.
These tools have come a long way since their initial release and I thought it would be great to give people an update on some of these tools and demonstrate how far they've come. If you've never tried them, then this will be an excellent way to check them out. If you have tried them before, then this is a chance to see where they are now.
On Friday October 11th at 12PM CST, I'll be hosting a Google Hangout focused on Edge Animate, Edge Reflow, Edge Code/Brackets, and Edge Inspect. I'll be joined by fellow evangelists Paul Trani and Serge Jespers.
To be clear, this is absolutely free and online only. All you need is a browser and some free time. The session will last for two hours with thirty minutes dedicated to each tool. If you have any questions, just comment below, and as I normally do with these online sessions, I'd love to get a basic idea of who is going to show up, so if you think you can, leave me a RSVP below!
I'm very happy to announce that the jQuery Mobile book that I wrote with Andy Matthews has now been updated to the second edition. It covers jQuery Mobile 1.3.2 (we couldn't wait for 1.4 unfortunately) and includes new UI features like panels and responsive tables.
You can order the book from Packt right now here: Packt
Another option is via the Amazon link below. I get a small kickback when you do and a kitten smiles. Amazon is showing the book as being unavailable till the end of October, but it really should just be a few more days.
I am proud of this book as I think it really helps explain jQuery Mobile in a simple, easy to approach manner. I hope you like it too.
