Because my project was relatively simple, I could get away with this for a while. But as the project grew in scope, using the prototype started proving unwieldy.

Video: Hype Animation Tutorial

Monday, June 13th, 2011

hype-example New goodies are posted! First, I gave a tutorial of the Hype HTML Animation App. You can see the video here, and you can see the final results here.

And we also have Bob doing the Ajax News, where he focuses on an interesting blog and topic, The 11 JavaScript Mistakes You’re Making.

Next Meeting: Hype Demo

Friday, June 3rd, 2011

The next Club AJAX meeting will be next Tuesday, June 7th. We’ll demo the new Hype animation tool, do Ajax News, have some give-aways, and finally a code Q&A.

Yes. The Dallas Mavericks are playing game 4 of the finals that night. We looked at changing the date, but that didn’t work – the Mavericks wouldn’t cooperate and move the game to Wednesday… something about TV schedules and 20,000 ticket holders.

Hence we’ve opted for an easy-going meeting, but it should still be fun! And I will have the Mavs game queuing up on my DVR and will be racing home to see them win!

GO MAVS!!
