Below are a list of some of the presentations that I have given.
Out of the way JSON!
Clean up your code with smatterings of AJAX
Introduction to Ruby on Rails
Canvas Test Replacement
sIFR without flash!
This was my WebJam presentation I gave on 15/08/2007. Canvas Text Replacement uses a SVG to Canvas convertor to render fonts. This allows you to use arbitrary True Type Fonts in your web pages with out relying on images or flash. The code presented is proof of concept.
A Web 2.0 business of your very own
I gave this presentation at the ICT Conference at Bentley in Western Australian on 13 October 2007. The slides don’t make much sense with out the video – I’ll be posting that very soon!
This presentation was given to the PRIA Young Guns in a group of talks around PR2.0. I covered a more technical view, as well as including some actual definitions. The presentation was given on 16 July 2008.
OpenID, OAuth and Webservices – a Developer’s guide
Web Directions South is without doubt Australia’s biggest web conference, held in Sydney in the September each year, and I was privileged enough to speak in 2008.
Stuff they never taught you in web site school
My presentation from The Edge of the Web in Perth, 2009. It lists a couple of simple techniques for making good web sites better.
I did this presentation for the inaugural City of Perth Thinktank session. It’s mainly about our co-working space and AWIA. It uses HTML5 and CSS3, so for best results view in Safari or Chrome, Firefox at a pinch – IE users, don’t even bother.
Smart Phone Development using Web Technologies
I gave this presentation at Web Directions in 2010, just after I release my first iPad application using PhoneGap.
Building Mobile Web Apps
Off the back of the Sitepoint Book I wrote with Earle Castledine and Max Wheeler, about building mobile web apps, I gave this talk at the Edge of the Web in 2011.
