Scripty2: Scriptaculous 2.0 Alpha is Out

This one’s a quickie: Thomas, with a little help from his friends, has put out the first alpha for Scripty2 (aka Scriptaculous 2.0). While there are lots of things missing (autocompleter, etc.), it’s pretty damn stable. That’s what we’ve been using for Twistori, the various Zeitgeists, and of course, Freckle time tracking. Thomas has written […]

Jelly! Talk Excerpt 1: My Crusade, Twistori, & Elemental Design

This is the first in a series of 2 or 3 posts for the transcript of my Jelly! talk from SXSW. Jelly! talks are put on by Yahoo! and Jelly!, the casual coworking movement. This one was held in the lovely Austin coworking space of Conjunctured. Here’s a link to the video. My name is […]

Your Questions: When do you do UI & Ajaxify?

Have I not answered your question yet? Don’t worry, I plan to get to all of them. I suck at email, but I’m learning the discipline to manage all this stuff. Please bear with! Today’s question is one I get a lot, actually. It’s not quite the same as the UI workflow question I answered […]

Your Questions: Client-side JavaScript Frameworks?

Thanks for coming through with more questions, guys! I’ve got enough for this week and maybe another week after that. You rock. This first question I picked because it’s related to JavaScript, and, well, I’m in a JavaScript mood (and in the mood to pimp our ebook!). Nicolas Papon, a French developer, wrote in: I […]

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s a special offer!

Hey guys. So amidst all this talk about splitting up my blog, etc., etc., etc… there’s something I forgot to mention. And it looks something like this: I can hear your shocked Inner Voice now: That’s a… that’s an ebook cover! Right in one!

OSCON 2007 Round-up

I had a blast at this year’s OSCON and FOSCON. I got out more and met tons of wonderful people. It seems like more Ruby folks were in attendance than last year, too. I think, though, on the balance, I’d rather not keep doing 3 talks every time I go. But maybe that’s just me […]

OMG, Prototype Docs!

Prototype users, your days of longing and sexy (and not-so-sexy) nail-biting are over… There’s now an official site. With docs. Yes, docs! Loads of them! Congrats (and a huge thanks!) to all the folks who made it happen.

Javascript Boot Camp Tutorial

On Monday I gave a 3-hour tutorial first thing in the morning, here at O’Reilly OSCON 2006 in Portland. From the description: Even though AJAX wouldn’t ever have become so popular if the Javascript world hadn’t suddenly exploded with mature development and testing tools, there’s little information on how to be a really good Javascript […]

Written by Thomas Fuchs, the creator of Scriptaculous, and yours truly, the maker […]

Canada on Rails

So much to write about, so little energy! More fanfare later, but for now: Getting Started with AJAX on Rails (PDF, 290K) My Flickr stream Canada on Rails Flickr photo group And, for your possible enjoyment, some quick non-talk notes I made that look kind of amusing out of context. I’ll expand on these later. […]
