    I had a great time presenting the PhoneGap Day workshops with Michael and Holly last week in San Francisco. In the afternoon, I ran an AngularJS/Ionic workshop based on this tutorial. At the end of the workshop, I showed a more complete version of the application with additional UI polish and better code organization. A number of people asked me to share that version, so here it is… Source Code The complete version of the application is now available in this repository on GitHub.

    Introduction Messaging systems are used to communicate in larger code bases by helping decouple classes that need to know about changes or happenings in certain areas of the code . One of Object Oriented Programming‘s core concepts is encapsulation. How you decide to allow objects to talk to each other has pro’s and con’s for each method and it’s good to know your options as you can use many together in effective hybrid approaches.

  • New Salesforce Mobile SDK 2.3 with Cordova 3.5 Support

    4 Sep 2014 | 8:35 am
    The Salesforce Mobile SDK allows developers to easily build Native (iOS and Android) and Hybrid (Cordova-based) applications on top of the Salesforce platform. Version 2.3 was released last week, and you can find the list of new and improved features in the official announcement blog post. My own favorite new feature is Cordova 3.5 support for Hybrid apps. You can now build Salesforce mobile applications using your standard Cordova workflows, and using the latest versions of Cordova core and community plugins. There are two options to create a Hybrid app using the Mobile SDK: Using the Mobile…

    A few weeks ago, I delivered a Cordova/PhoneGap Workshop at jQuery UK in Oxford. Great conference in a great location! I took the opportunity to revamp the workshop I had been delivering at PhoneGap Day in Portland and Amsterdam, and at LXJS in Lisbon. I thought it could be useful to a larger audience, so I just posted the updated materials for the first part of the workshop (Cordova CLI, Single Page Architecture, Templates, Cordova APIs, Hardware Acceleration, Performance Techniques, etc.) here. In the second part of the workshop, I covered AngularJS and the Ionic Framework. I will post the…

  • Fitness Progress in 2013

    1 Jan 2014 | 10:03 am
    2013 was a great year for me to learn more about fitness and health. I tried 3 specific diet changes: a caloric deficit, a vegetarian diet, and a caloric increase (bulk phase). Fitness wise I tried #P90X2 , #BodyBeast , and my own custom routine I put together from my own research. As you can see from the charts I lost a ton of fat and weight through P90X, but P90X2 really pushed me to the lowest body fat and weight I’ve ever been since in my teen years (I’m 34).   Sadly, the caloric deficit, which consists of eating 500 to 300 calories less per day then you need was…
  • Trade Offs in Cyber Security by Dan Geer

    Some wonderfully choice quotes from this cyber security essay by Dan Geer. Quite long, but (somewhat?) clearly illustrates the challenges of living in a society where there is so much data about you easily accessible, even if you don’t actually intentionally contribute. Additionally, he covers the increasing struggle how we conform to these loss of freedoms which is the antithesis of being an American, yet we keep doing it. While he has a call out to fight it, as far as I can see, there aren’t any easy/obvious solutions, nor did he provide any. In the 21st century, we have a…

    JesterXL
    22 Oct 2013 | 2:05 pm
    I’m not involved. I am not saying I’m for/against ACA.

Yes, months. Second, because it’s so big with many of the parts not under the purview of the contractor, they can’t rewrite it. That means, it’ll take 2 times or more…

  • Using Plugins and Mixins in Your Sencha Apps

    23 Oct 2014 | 7:55 am
    Introduction When extending the functionality of a framework class, you generally write the new functionality directly into the derived class. However, if you need that same functionality to exist in multiple components, the most efficient option may be to define it in a plugin or mixin. Plugins and mixins are classes that add extra functionality to another class. In this article, we’ll talk about what these classes are, how they differ, and how they work. I’ve also included Sencha Fiddle examples to illustrate these concepts. What is a Plugin and How Do I Use it? A plugin is a…

  • jQuery 3.0: The Next Generations

    Dave Methvin
    29 Oct 2014 | 11:23 am
    It’s hard to believe it’s been nearly eight years since jQuery was released. Web development has changed a lot over the years, and jQuery has changed along with it. Through all of this time, the team has tried to walk the line between maintaining compatibility with code from the past versus supporting the best web development practices of the present. One of those best practices is semantic versioning, or semver for short. In a practical sense, semver gives developers (and build tools) an idea of the risk involved in moving to a new version of software. Version numbers are in the…

We believe that these are separate incidents that may have used the same attack vector. We took the site down as soon as we realized there was a compromise and cleaned the infected files. We are taking steps to re-secure our servers, upgrade dependencies, and address vulnerabilities. At no point today have there been reports of malware…

    We have good news for anyone using the experimental polymorphism framework from within SproutCore. You’ll be glad to know that it has now made its way into the official datastore framework as part of SC.Record. If you have been using this framework, you’ll be even more glad to learn that polymorphic records are now significantly faster and more memory efficient. As well, this change includes a critical bug fix that resulted in polymorphic records getting mismatched when their id was changed. For those interested in what this change means, here’s how it works. First, if…

    One of the new features in SproutCore v1.10.0 was a PhantomJS unit test runner. It allowed us to automate SproutCore’s own framework unit tests, giving us awesome continuous integration support right in GitHub via the great Travis-CI service. If you use CoreTest, SproutCore’s built-in (QUnit-like) unit test framework, then you can also use this to run your own tests from the command line – meaning you can automate it, and hook it up to your own CI scaffolding. It’s impossible to overstate the impact that continuous, automatic unit testing has on the quality and stability…

With an eye towards improving that situation, I’m excited to announce Juniper, a SproutCore app and annotated codebase. Check it out: http://juniper.dcporter.net/ I wrote a fuller introduction here, and the source code itself is here.

    It was love at first sight for Miriam when she first experimented with coding in the architecture office where she worked. Seeing an opportunity to apply her design skills and perspective in a new way, Miriam continued to embrace her interest in her free time. Eventually she found the courage to quit her job as an architect and dedicate herself to studying web design and development full-time. Just before committing to a university computer science course, Miriam came across Treehouse and decided to take the e-learning path instead. Over the upcoming months she dedicated her time to learning…

    Read original post at Jennifer Marsman's Blog [...] So, I built a Hogwarts Sorting Hat. A Windows Phone 8.1 app in a pocket in the hat uses an accelerometer to pick the house and text-to-speech to yell out the house name. Currently, the trigger is touching a button, but I may change that. I built in a 3-second pause for dramatic effect, and then the Hat announces your house.
