Flash And The City: jQuery Mobile

2011 June 15th by todd anderson

Over the past weekend, I had the great pleasure to attend and present at Flash And The City in NYC. I want to thank Elad and Jose for putting on an excellent conference and giving me an opportunity to present.

The talk was about the jQuery Mobile framework and was sort of a nuts and bolts overview of what the framework has to offer and its foundation on the principal of Progressive Enhancement. Thanks to all who made it out. I really appreciate it and hopefully it was worth taking you away from the beautiful city for a little bit.

You can also check out a loose transcript of what i may have said here: jQuery Mobile: Progressive Enhancement with HTML5 [FATC 2011] transcript. [Warning - its a PDF]

There were more slides than the time allotted and I didn’t want to keep those who were nice enough to attend from exploring the city by watching me ramble on over my time limit. So i can’t guarantee that the transcript was true to the presentation; it was more of a rough draft of my thoughts on the slides.

All the demo source code and a PDF of the slide-deck can be downloaded here as well:

Thanks again to everyone who came out and to Elad and Jose for putting on another great Flash And The City conference!
