Adding an Absolutely Positioned Header to Reveal.js

04-01-2014 2,348 views Misc 3 Comments

I'm a big fan of reveal.js. It is a lightweight HTML-based presentation framework that just works well for me. I switched over to it a while ago and enjoy working with it. Every now and then though I run into an issue that is a bit hard to handle with it. Yesterday I was working on my cfObjective presentation and created the slide you see below.

Dash integration for Brackets

03-31-2014 2,065 views Development Comments

So after raving about Dash yesterday, I thought I'd whip up a quick Brackets integration extension for it. Brackets recently made Node integration a bit easier, and Dash has a simple CLI interface for searching, so it didn't take long to write an extension that lets you make a selection, hit a key combo, and then open the doc in Dash automatically.

Check out Dash

While at iOS training a few weeks ago one of the instructors mentioned an OSX program called Dash. Dash is an offline documentation viewer, which sounds kinda boring, but I'm incredibly pleased with it.

AngularJS Tip - Avoid Multiple Variables in ng-src

Before I start, let me be clear I'm still learning AngularJS and this "tip" may be 100% wrong. I just ran into this with an application and most likely there is a better way to address what I did.

ColdFusion Example: Upload a zip of images for processing

03-28-2014 2,230 views ColdFusion 1 Comment

I keep a note of possible blog ideas and as I've been having a bit of writer's block lately, I thought I'd take a look and see what I could turn into a decent article. One of the older ideas I had was something that I thought would be a good example. Imagine you've built an image uploader for your site and have a bit of processing on the back end (scaling, gray scaling, etc). Now imagine you want to allow for bulk uploads of zip files to do the same thing. Here is a simple one page example of that in action.

This is just a quick FYI type post, but today Adobe announced "PhoneGap for the Enterprise". You can read more about it at the PhoneGap Blog: Introducing PhoneGap for the Enterprise.

My first native iOS app - Death Clock

03-25-2014 2,632 views Mobile 13 Comments

A few days ago I returned from a week of Objective-C and iOS training. I wanted to build an app on my own just to see what I could do and how comfortable I felt with the technology away from the Nerd Ranch. While it isn't pretty and the code is probably wrong in multiple ways, I've been able to create a native version of the Death Clock.

Intergral folks are hiring!

I mentioned before that I was putting a stop to posting ColdFusion positions (or jobs in general) but I'm making an exception for Intergral. These are some great folks and they make some really good products. Definitely read this if you are looking for a position.

I don't know about you, but when I see a form that has disabled autocomplete, I get pretty upset:

I survived Big Nerd Ranch training

03-22-2014 4,404 views Mobile, Development 20 Comments

It's Saturday morning and I'm slowly decompressing from spending the last seven days in what is easily the most intense training I've experienced in my life. I've just returned from Big Nerd Ranch's "Beginning iOS" class and I'd like to share my thoughts on it. This post is separated into two sections. I'll begin by talking about the class itself and then share my thoughts on Objective-C and iOS in general.
