Baltimore Refresh jQuery Presentation

Thursday, April 17th, 2008

On April 9th I had given a jQuery Presentation on the basics of using jQuery and how to punch up your site with some minor animations. All in all the presentation went over well and I got a lot of good questions. Since my days at UPS I’ve never been real good at creating Power Points to give my presentations. I’ve always been better at just showing, planning what I want to talk about and then just letting the presentation flow. Which can be good and bad depending on if the crowd asks questions. With that said, I did not create any Power Points slided, but since a got a good amount of emails asking me to post them, I decided to just create a screencast that covers everything we went over, answering the questions that were asked during the presentation.

Create an unobtrusive photo gallery

Saturday, April 5th, 2008

As you very well know by now, I have created quite a few image / photo galleries and the ultimate goal was to allow them to be as unobtrusive as possible. Well, the other day I got into a discussion with a co-worker and the questions he asked were, “How is that unobtrusive?”, referring to my gallery plugins, “The images are in list elements?” My answer to that was, “They can be styled to have each list element float and punched up a bit.” His rebuttal, “But what if styles were off also?” I hesitated for a second and he know he had won this conversation and silently walked away.

Learn from my mistakes, I got burnt by the flame, you don't have to.
