Workshop October 5th at IndyHall: Making Things Move with CSS and JavaScript

I wanted to make all our members aware of an upcoming one day workshop on October 5th, at IndyHall. The workshop will be lead by our friend Val Head, and is titled: "Making Things Move with CSS and JavaScript" - A workshop on making the most of your standards-based transitions, animations and interactions. It will be from 9:30am to 4:30pm - and space is limited! Tickets went on sale today for the 10 spots available - if you are interested in this topic, Val is a great instructor with plenty of real world practical experience with her clients, past workshops and conferences she has organized and run in Pittsburgh - don't miss this opportunity.

Here is an excerpt about the workshop from Val's site:
    "It seems like there are a million ways to make things move on the web these days, which makes the why and how behind your animations even more important! In this workshop we’ll look at how to get the most out of your transitions and animations with CSS. Then we’ll add JavaScript into the mix for even more powerful options.

    Get a jumpstart on current standards in animating and adding motion on the web as well as a solid foundation for the design thinking behind them! We’ll get our hands dirty with some code (CSS and JavaScript) and some solid examples for you to take home. We’ll also spend time on the ‘why’ and ‘how’ behind our animation decisions and discuss what works and what doesn’t."

Flex to Sencha with Ted Patrick - March 12th at Wharton's Jon M. Huntsman Hall

Pleased to announce that on March 12th, our group and the local ColdFusion group, are jointly hosting our old friend Ted Patrick who is now with Sencha as their Director of Developer Relations. Ted will be here as part of the Flex to Sencha Road Show.

Important! RSVP's for this event are required - see below for more info about this event:

Ted Patrick currently holds the position of Director of Developer Relations at Sencha. He works with developers to create applications using web technologies including HTML5, JavaScript, and CSS. Prior to Sencha, Ted worked at Barnes and Noble on NOOK Apps and prior to that on Flash & Flex at Adobe Systems. Along the way, he founded 4 companies as an entrepreneur, raised vc funding, and sold 1. Ted loves to write software. No, He really, really, loves to write software. So much he can hardly think of it as work. Ted especially loves to help solve the hard strategy problems in combining business and software. The past 2 years have been filled with learning the ins and outs of the Android Operating System and how best to write software for phone-tablet form factor devices (IOS/Android). Lately, Ted dove head first into building apps using HTML5. When he is not writing code, you will find him either spending time with his family or scuba diving.

Ted will be walking us through Sencha's frameworks for building mobile and desktop applications using web technologies including HTML5, JavaScript, and CSS. We will cover the framework's foundation (OOP+MVC), standard libraries, containers, components, xtype rendering, and most importantly cross-browser support. Bring an open mind and a laptop, we will be building applications from scratch; feel free to follow along. Sencha provides frameworks, tools, and services for building professional applications with HTML5.
