I don't normally do a blog post for new Brackets releases, but I wanted to specifically call out the most recent release, Sprint 24. From the web site, this release includes:
Warning - this falls into the "Cool, but may not be a good idea category." I'm a huge fan of the Reveal.js framework for HTML-based presentations and I've already posted a few of my utilities/tips/etc for making it work better (or at least better for me). One issue I've run into a few times lately is escaping HTML for code slides.
Over the weekend I was working on a small project and needed a copy of jQuery. I try to avoid the CDN as I find myself at airports without wifi access sometimes so I did what I normally do:

I'm currently working on my MAX Advanced PhoneGap Build presentation (wait, scratch that, of course I'm done already, I mean, who waits to the last minute???) and ran into an interesting issue. Using a splash screen is rather easy via the PhoneGap Build config.xml file.
On Tuesday, April 30th, I'll be giving a free, online presentation about PhoneGap as a preview of my Fluent 2013 presentation in San Francisco next month. This presentation will be your basic "What the frak is PhoneGap"-type presentation, but if you are looking for a chance to get introduced to the product, please join me.
(Wow - I need to update my bio there. Apparently I'm still an independent contractor focused on ColdFusion.)
Just as an FYI, today my first article on flippin' awesome! was published this morning: Building a Google Maps Application with Updating Markers
In the article I discuss how to create a Google Map that automatically refreshes marker data every few seconds. The idea being that you may have data for moving items (trucks, dragons, users with jetpacks) and your map can automatically update the display in near real time.
This probably won't be anything interesting to my readers (you guys and gals already know what I like about ColdFusion 10), but my first article for peachpit.com went live yesterday:
Attending MAX? Or going to be in LA at the same time? Use Brackets or PhoneGap? Both teams will be hosting a hackathon on Monday and Tuesday from 1 to 6PM. A MAX ticket is not required to attend. There will be free wifi and a comfy place to sit. While a MAX badge isn't required, if you are not registering for MAX you must register on the EventBrite site. For more details, see http://dev.brackets.io/hack/adobemax/. No prior experience required!
Welcome to my third and final blog post on ColdFusion and OAuth. (You may find the earlier entries below.) I apologize for the delay but I traveled last week so I'm a bit behind. If you have not yet read the earlier entries (part 1 and part 2), please do so as I will not be repeating the information I wrote about before.
