    Fix for Footer Shift in jQuery Mobile Toolbar
    ​I was using the jQuery Mobile toolbar widget for iOS to create a tablet log-in page. I was using the “always show” feature of the jQuery toolbar in order to keep it locked in place on the screen (which makes the header and footer visible no matter where I scroll on the page). When opening and closing the keyboard, the headers and footers kept sh...

    Working Remotely – Is it for you?
    ​I read a blog post a while back from Scott Hanselman titled Being a Remote Worker Sucks - Long Live the Remote Worker and as a remote worker myself I found it to be a pretty good synopsis of the benefits and drawbacks of remote work.

    Thinking of using Knockout? Here's why we did

    Codemash Review
    I was unable to attend Codemash and so was very much looking forward to attending version this year. Due to heavy snow and extreme cold – it was a challenge just getting to the Kalahari but the conference was well worth the extended drive. Including the pre-compiler sessions, I spent roughly half my time in sessions based on fro...

    CodeMash 2014 Session Recap: Applicaiton Security
    ​After letting it “sink in” for a week I realized that we all need to be a little more aware of the importance of security when we are developing applications.  It amazes me that someone would post data source and connection information in StackOverflow but I was able to find 15 articles with that information readily available.  Granted ...

    CodeMash v2.0.1.4
    Backstory This year at CodeMash, I volunteered to take over the sign creation from Jeff Blankenburg.  Shortly after, Darrell Hawley asked if I wanted to be a CodeMash volunteer also, and I said that I would.  It turned out that Darrell wasn’t going to be able to make it to the conference and he asked if I would take over his volunteer c...

    Post-CodeMash 2014
      I am sitting here, at the Ivory Coast Lounge, reflecting after 4 days of CodeMash. On the one hand, I feel like I want the events to continue. Being in "sponge mode" and trying to learn everything around you, is: A leap of faith, trusting the presenters' information will be good for you, even though it may not seem so at the...

    What CodeMash 2014 means to me...
    I arrived in Sandusky for my third trip to CodeMash at roughly 11:30 pm on January 6th only to exit my car and realize that the temperature really was -13 degrees.  I really don’t want to know what the wind chill was as I imagine it was far colder than my “southern bones” can handle.  My trip from Cincinnati would normally have ...
