Adobe MAX is coming fast!

Adobe MAX

I have been selected to speak at Adobe MAX again. However, this time I am giving a 90 minute workshop entitled “Creating Mobile Applications with jQuery Mobile and PhoneGap Build“. In fact the response has been so good, they had to add a third session on Wednesday afternoon! If you are attending and wanted to take this workshop, maybe it can now work into your schedule.

I have had a lot of fun developing the course content. If all goes well, attendees will go from a blank html document to a working mobile application in 90 minutes! I have some great TAs, so if even you hit a snag, these fine folks will be able to get you back on track. It should be a fun workshop, and I hope that you can attend. If you are not sure about coming to AdobeMAX, there is a discount code available for $300. Leave me a comment and I will send it to you.

My jQuery Mobile & PhoneGap Build sa

Adobe MAXJust found out that a third session of my workshop “Creating Mobile Applications with jQuery Mobile and PhoneGap Build” has been added to the schedule at this year’s Adobe MAX! This session will be held on Wednesday at 4pm.

Hope to see you there.

Here is the details on the workshop:

Discover how jQuery Mobile and Adobe PhoneGap Build, part of the Adobe Creative Cloud, make for a powerful combination when creating mobile applications with HTML, JavaScript, and CSS. This session will show how to make the most of these tools when using them together in mobile development. This workshop will cover:

  • The basics of developing a PhoneGap application based on jQuery Mobile
  • How to use the jQuery Mobile framework to write a mobile web app that works on all popular smartphone and tablet platforms
  • How to customize the application using Adobe Fireworks
  • How to make an application more flexible by using a templating system
  • Taking the application native by using PhoneGap Build and enabling device-specific features

Adobe Developer Connection Articles

I recently had the good fortune to write two articles for the Adobe Developer Connection. The first article was on the just released Edge Reflow Preview. Edge Reflow is a new application designed to aid designers and developers in creating responsive web sites. I was a humbled to see that it is the featured article on the site.

The other article I wrote was Up and Running with Modernizr. (Yes, I picked the name as a nod to all my good friends at lynda.com 😉 ). Modernizr is a JavaScript library that detects HTML5 and CSS3 features in the user’s browser.

I had a lot of fun writing both articles, and had great support from the ADC staff (Brian & Julee) during the process!

Speaking at Adobe MAX 2013!
