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.

jQuery: Select what you want – part 2

Monday, November 26th, 2007

In my first post about jQuery Selectors call Select what you want, I went over some basic selectors that I use on a daily basis within a web based training framework I put together using jQuery. What I would like to cover are some of the situations I have ran into over the past year […]

jQuery: Select what you want – part 1

Sunday, November 25th, 2007

In an earlier post I wrote about what are the fastest basic selectors and found out some interesting stuff with regards to speed for some basic selectors. In this post I am going to go over some not-so-basic selectors. I am going to try not to repeat what Karl has said in his two posts, […]

jQuery: what are the fastest selectors?

Friday, November 23rd, 2007

Update 12/07/2007: per Brian Cherne comments, I decided to run these test again in Firefox with firebug lite instead of firebug and the execution times were dreastically different. So, to “level the playing field” I would suggest that you turn off firebug or disable it for the page and refresh, you will get the firebug […]

jqGalViewIII (proof of concept)

Sunday, October 21st, 2007

Here we have yet another photo / image gallery, except at this point it is only a proof of concept. I see a ton of photo galleries in Flash and see a lot of effects that just can’t be done in JavaScript, but a ton of effects that can be achieved. This one is nothing fancy and not fully tested, but when I have more time I may take is some other features that are present in my other plugins in to this one.

jQuery: jqGalViewII (Photo Gallery)

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2007

With the success of the jqGalView Plugin I’ve decided to release the jQuery jqGalViewII (beta) Plugin which allows you to take a grouping of images and turn it into an flash-like image/photo gallery, much like what the jqGalView Plugin does for you. It allows you to style it how ever you want and add as many images at you want.

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