Watch a Recorded Virtual jQuery Training Class

May 18th, 2013

Due to popular demand from those outside the United Kingdom region who couldn’t make the times for the live training classes we will now record the classes and offer them for a limited time on our password protected server after the live training class.

To get the recorded version just pay for the class you’d like to participate in and then we’ll email everyone that is registered a link, username and password once we host the file. The class will be available on our servers to watch for one week after we send the email out.

About our Virtual jQuery Training

Our next set of public virtual jQuery training classes will be 21 May 2013 – 23 May 2013 from 1PM – 5PM (GMT+1 or BST). These classes are timed so they will work well for those in the UK and Europe but anyone is welcome to attend. We are offering three separate classes, JavaScript and jQuery Foundations, Advanced jQuery Techniques, and jQuery Mobile. You can choose just the class that is right for you for £50 a class or you can get an All-access pass that’ll get you into all three classes for £140.

    appendTo Takes on Europe

    January 30th, 2012

    Two conferences happening in February will feature appendTo speakers. First, on February 7-8, Mike Hostetler will speak at BlackBerry DevCon being held at the Amsterdam RAI Convention Centre. Mike’s session, “Rapidly Develop Mobile Web Applications With jQuery Mobile,” will offer an overview of jQuery Mobile and walk through the pros and cons of the project.

    Session attendees can expect to: 

    • Understand the aims, goals, strengths and weaknesses of the jQuery Mobile project to identify whether it is a fit for your project
    • Learn how to create a BlackBerry Tablet OS application using jQuery Mobile
    • Find out how to use other JavaScript libraries with jQuery Mobile

    From BlackBerry DevCon, Mike will travel over to the U.K. for jQuery Europe, where he will be joined by two other appendTo employees and current jQuery board members, Doug Neiner and Ralph Whitbeck. For a not-to-be-missed preview of their trip, watch this short video:

    appendTo will produce two all-day workshops on February 9, the day before the main event, covering jQuery Mobile and an Introduction to jQuery. The jQuery Mobile workshop—the public debut of appendTo’s jQuery Mobile Training Curriculum—provides a comprehensive review of the jQuery Mobile Framework, walking through its new features and functionalities available to build robust and cross-platform mobile sites. The introduction to jQuery will take students through the basics of jQuery front-end development and will give them a core foundation for developing with the most popular JavaScript library.

    At the main conference, Ralph will present “The State of the jQuery Project.” Attendees will learn how the jQuery project is structured—from the jQuery Board to membership in the Software Freedom Conservancy—and the state of jQuery Core, jQuery UI and jQuery Mobile. The session also includes a glimpse of what might be coming in the near future. Doug will present “Contextual jQuery.” In his session, attendees will learn how to develop clean, responsible jQuery code that responds to its context instead of the traditional, define everything, top-down approach. This session will also cover how event delegation, traversal methods and advanced selectors all work together that allows for more efficient and less wasteful code.

    The jQuery Europe event takes place on February 10 at the Siad Business School in Oxford. Visit the website for more information.

    Blackberry 5: Now officially supported in jQuery Mobile

    June 3rd, 2011

    One of the more popular requests for the jQuery Mobile team was for support for Blackberry 5. With Blackberry a standard issue phone in the enterprise you can see why this would be a highly requested feature for jQuery Mobile. The team announced recently that they now have a B grade level support for Blackberry 5 devices.

    We’ve been working hard to support the Blackberry 5 platform and we’re happy to announce that jQuery Mobile now works great on our test Blackberry 5 devices. This platform has B grade support which means that all the enhanced styles and widgets work well within the CSS capabilities of the device, but Ajax navigation and page transitions aren’t supported so links and form submits result in a full page refresh.

    Ajax navigation was problematic on BB5 because it lacks hashchange support for the history stack which essentially broke the back button behavior so disabling this feature resolves that issue and also speeds up the user experience. These devices tend to be fairly under-powered so very complex pages can take a bit longer to render but overlay works very well. There are of a few style improvements we need to tidy up, but sites built with jQuery Mobile should now work well on this platform. View the latest build to see it in action.

    The jQuery Mobile team also announced Opera Mini and Opera Mobile performance improvements, a navigation core refactor and the roadmap for Datepicker. Keep up the great work guys!

    You can follow along with jQuery Mobile Development on their blog or on Twitter.

    VSDoc for jQuery Mobile In-Development

    November 16th, 2010

    While [jQuery Mobile](https://github.com/jquery/jquery-mobile) is still in early development, we’ve put together a simple VSDoc file containing the jQuery Mobile-specific methods which have been documented thus far. The jQuery Mobile VSDoc is available now for download on our [jQuery VSDoc Community](https://appendtonew.wpengine.com/community/vsdoc) page.Formal documentation for jQuery Mobile is still being assembled at the moment, so this VSDoc was put together by hand, unlike the VSDoc for jQuery proper which is automatically generated.

    As always, please feel welcome to have a look at, or fork, the [Git Repository](https://github.com/appendto/jquery-vsdoc) where all of our VSDoc material lives.
