HTML5 Everywhere : Part 1 Wijmo from scratch

HTML5 is really everywhere, isn’t it? Welcome to my new multipart blog on HTML5 development. Did you ever wonder why every session at a code camp on HTML5/JavaScript/jQuery is packed ? I did, until I sat in on Josh Broton’s session at the Iowa Code Camp last year. He made it clear thru surveys and poll data, you will loose business if your site does not have a responsive web design. You could stand to loose a staggering 60% of your sales if your site is not responsive to mobile devices, tables, laptops, desktops and everything in between. Think about it…. I am sitting on my couch and need to look something up on the internet. My laptop in ten feet away, but instead of getting up and going to my laptop, I pull my Phone 8 out of my pocket and look it up on that device. The site better run good on my phone or I am off to another site, perhaps a competitor. Is your head nodding? Many nod in my seminars, I can tell you that much.

Orlando, one of the best code camps set for this weekend: ComponentOne Diamond sponsor

This weekend, one of the best annual code camps I have been to, is taking place in Lake Mary, FL. The Orlando Code Camp 2013 will take place on Saturday, March 16th at Seminole State College. It’s looking like 700-800 registrations. I always look forward to this code camp. I have lots of great memories, including my first Russcam interview with Dave Noderer, just two years ago. I now have 90 episodes published and many more to come. The code camp gets bigger every year and they have a core group of volunteers and organizers that do an awesome job at getting sponsors and running the event with flawless execution.

Conditional Formatting in Flexgrid for LightSwitch

ComponentOne FlexGrid for LightSwitch is a LightSwitch control extension that uses the same command bar elements as the built-in Data Grid; however, it replaces the underlying Silverlight grid control with the popular ComponentOne FlexGrid control. As a drop-in replacement, the extension does everything that the built-in Data Grid does, plus conditional formatting, cell merging, tree views, export to Excel (even from the Web), filtering, printing, grouping and more.

The ComponentOne Roadmap to 2012

Throughout 2012 Microsoft will be making stepwise releases of Windows 8 and Visual Studio 11 starting with a public Consumer Preview released on February 29th. With Microsoft’s new platform, application developers will have more options and more capabilities than ever before.  But professional developers won’t be the only ones to benefit from these new tools. Microsoft has really extended its reach to include non-professional application developers with Visual Studio LightSwitch, to commercial App developers with a new Metro UI Shell and App Marketplace - and to non-traditional “Microsoft” developers with first-class citizen-support for jQuery, CSS, and HTML.
