This is the video of my presentation titled jQuery: Nuts, Bolts and Bling. The slides are available on Speaker Deck, and the code is available on Github.

 
Here are the slides from my presentation at the Front End Design Conference. Additionally, I posted the source code to Github for the live coding portion of the presentation.

Here is the video from the jQuery Boston conference of 2010. You’ll need the slides to watch along with the video.

 

jQuery Panel for Cold Fusion Devs

I am taking part in a jQuery discussion panel tomorrow (Feb 8, 2011). Please join in if you can make it. The topic centers around what jQuery means for server side developers. I will be joining Raymond Camden, Ben Nadel and fellow jQuery Team Member Rey Bango. It should be a blast!

 

Here are the slides for the talk I presented at jQuery Conference. Video should be available at a later date. Thanks again to everyone who provided feedback on Speaker Rate and all those who attended my talk!

 

I asked my son, “What is the best JavaScript Framework in the World?” I think you will love his response. Go jQuery!

 

First Days at Church

My mom has taken a picture of each of my kids on their first day in church. Its neat to see 1) how little they are and 2) How much of how Cody looks today was visible when he was just a few weeks old!

CSS Olympic Logo

Inspired by Justin Sepulveda’s CSS Logos and this post on the new Design Informer Forums, I decided to try my hand at creating the Olympic Rings with just CSS and HTML. I realize it is simple, but it was fun to figure out the layering and how to do it with just a few elements. After another helpful suggestion from Justin, I changed the measurements to use ems so it could be resized easily. Try sliding the jQuery UI slider back and forth to change the size of the logo!

Now that you are all excited, click on through to view the CSS logo! Remember, you need to use a modern browser that supports border-radius. This will look really funny in IE < 8! If it doesn’t look like the picture below, try a different browser!

Quick thoughts on GPL and WordPress

This post is more about the GPL than WordPress, but here is my 2¢: Matt may be right in his understanding of the GPL. He is legally right to enforce it. That doesn’t mean I agree with the original choice to use the GPL or his choice to enforce it.

Here is my open-source philosophy: “I share code and contribute because I love it. I get joy from people using my code. If you can make money off my code, awesome!*”

Is it naive to think others should feel this same way about the code they release?
