Spiffy Applications With JavaScript

Webuquerque in July ‘11

This event has passed. However, the recap is available!

You understand the basics of jQuery to handle some events and maybe do some animation, but there's a lot more that you could be doing.

Local JavaScript experts Mark Casias and Brian Arnold will walk you through a few examples of using jQuery and JavaScript to tackle a couple of common issues, as well as how to create a simple application that utilizes information from other services such as Twitter and Flickr.

Brian Arnold

While other kids were out doing normal kid things like sports or something, Brian spent as much of his childhood as possible in front of computer screens. As such, he's been developing software in a variety of forms since 1992.

Having received a BS in CS from UNM, Brian has worked as a professional in software development for 12 years, working for everything from small seat-of-the-pants web shops to America Online during its heyday, creating both desktop and web-based applications (vastly preferring the latter).

He has a lovely wife and two cute little dogs, and ranks among the top 5% of fake guitarists in Rock Band. He will happily chew your ear off about any of those things, amazing web technologies like HTML5 and modern JavaScript techniques, or really just about anything. He also tweets about these things over at @brianarn and can be found on a variety of services as listed in his Google Profile.
