ExtJS: An introduction (and then some!) at Bucks Co JS

In February 2016 I spoke at the Bucks County JavaScript meetup to give an introduction to Sench ExtJS. This was a basic, introductory-level talk about ExtJS where I presented a number of simple examples and provided an overview of what ExtJS can do.

In December 2011 I spoke at the Philadelphia Java User's Group (Philly JUG) on Android development. This was a fairly basic, introductory-level talk, with a little bit more advanced stuff towards the end. Included here in the download is the slide deck as well as all example code.


 

2010 SenchaCon

In October 2010 I was a speaker at SenchaCon in San Francisco where I gave a wide-ranging talk entitled "ExtJS - Tales From the Real World" where I discuss my experience using ExtJS doing enterprise development, some of the challenges I've faced and some of the solutions to them, some of which are fairly unique (and at least one is a bit controversial!). For some reason none of the materials from my talk were posted, including the video of it, so here's the slide desk at least.

Interview with Roy Sutton of webOSRoundup

This is an interview from March 2010 discussing a number of different topics related topics related to Palm's webOS conducted with my by Roy Sutton of the web site webOSRoundup. This is part I of the interview, part II should be posted soon (yes, it ran that long, which should give you an idea of how much we covered!) Roy got into some more personal stuff with me too, not just webOS-related topics, so it's hopefully a fun, interesting read (it was certainly fun to do!)


 

WebDev Radio Interview #71

This was another interview I did for WebDev Radio. Michael Kimsal over at WebDev Radio is obviously a glutton for punishment and wanted to interview me again! This one, from December 2009, covers almost entirely webOS and the Palm Pre. To be honest, when I listened to it myself I realized it wasn't really my best performance... especially the part where I couldn't name my own book! But hey, you can't win 'em all I guess.
