Since apparently the description from my JSConf.EU talk was quite enticing, I’ve been asked to re-run the same session –or something equally fancy/funny– at Barcelona’s DevFest next Friday, 11th of October. I can’t go and do the very exact same thing, so I decided to add new and improved stuff and do the talk in Spanish AND screencast it so people who don’t speak English have a chance to get inspired/mad by my crazy ideas.
The talk is at 12:05 in the “Auditorio Vertex”.
I will also be running a hybrid between workshop and talk on Firefox OS with Brick, where I’ll demonstrate some of the new and very awesome features in Developer Tools / Simulator for Firefox OS. If you were in the Mozilla Summit you know what I’m speaking about ;-)
The workshop is at 15h at the VXS208* room.
This has been somehow quickly planned so sorry about not warning about it earlier!
*Also, I can’t stop reading VXS208 as “Visual XStudio 2008″
Note: These are the notes on my talk about Mozilla Brick at Over The Air 2013. Sadly it wasn’t recorded, and I got kind of nervous and forgot to press the “REC” button in Quicktime, so I didn’t “screencast” it either. You can also check the original slides for maximum impact.
UI components for modern web apps
I needed to prepare some slides, but I found the existing HTML+CSS3 systems a tad too complicated for what I needed/wanted. And since I was working on something that used Mozilla Brick components, I decided to see if I could solve this problem, quickly.
Turns out I indeed could! :-)
Within minutes I had assembled this little script that uses x-deck and x-card to display “slides”: here’s the demo.
Thanks to the help and suggestions of Potch I also added proper full screen support. Wenzel suggestions of making a Mozilla themed version was good too. All easily done!
Fact: I actually used a hacked version of this “hack” for my JSConf EU 2013 talk ;-)
Now for something completely different (sort of). Instead of music and graphics, I’ll be talking at about Mozilla Brick and how you can use it to build web apps, one brick at a time (you know, bad puns are a thing).
The conference is Over The Air, held at the mighty, legendary and historical BLETCHLEY PARK. YES! Where Alan Turing and the rest of the gang worked during World War II on breaking the German coded messages. ISN’T IT AMAZING!!?!?!
So, come to my session. 27th September, 16h (in lanyrd).
Mortar and bricks will be provided, no need to bring your own. But I’ll tell you all about baking your own specially designed bricks.
UPDATE: Here are the slides and the source code + sample apps.
