Migration Update
Mon, Feb 2nd 2015 4:02p   John Wargo
As you can see, it's been a while since I posted to this site. Well...I started the migration to a new hosting provider on December 1st and spent a couple of days on it before taking a break for the holidays. I had a couple of lingering problems, so I spent the day today trying to get around them. I pretty much did, but not other problems have arisen. Sigh - this has been really hard as it's next to impossible to migrate a Joomla! site the way I'm forced to do it here. I'd tell you that I

Site Migration Starts Today
Mon, Dec 1st 2014 10:11a   John Wargo
I will be migrating this site to a new hosting account starting today. I don't know how long this process is going to take, so please be patient as I work through this. I'm migrating the site for several reasons. It's been running on one of my personal hosting accounts and I want to move it to its own account/server for performance and security reasons. It's been running on Joomla 2.5 for a while and I want to get it to Joomla 3.x. Hackers have been having some fun with my site lately, so

Where to Find Me @ SAP TechEd && d-code Las Vegas 2014
Tue, Oct 14th 2014 6:10a   John Wargo
Next week I’ll be attending SAP’s TechEd conference in Las Vegas. In previous years, I’ve attended the conference and spent most of my time visiting with customers on the show floor. This year I’ve been assigned several sessions (along with some colleagues), so I thought I’d let you know what I have going on this year. First I’m doing a session entitled “MOB101: Hybrid Mobile Application Development with Kapsel” – it’s a one hour lecture session where I introduce Hybrid deve

Poorly Designed Web Sites
Tue, Sep 16th 2014 7:11a   John Wargo
As look at the world around me, I’m surprised that in the world of the connected, mobile user, that companies are still not thinking of mobile-first users. There are millions or billions of mobile devices sold every year, but companies with public facing web sites still don’t seem to notice and I’m really surprised by that. The local Charlotte BIG insurance company is Novant Health, and they’re usually pretty organized. I was in one of their facilities a while back and noticed that ther

Bootstrap Complete NavBar Example Application
Mon, Sep 1st 2014 6:12a   John Wargo
I had an idea a while back for a web application I wanted to create. I’d not worked much with Bootstrap (http://getbootstrap.com/) and wanted to have some experience with it, so I thought I’d play around with building the app I wanted using the framework. The Bootstrap web site is pretty detailed, and I quickly found an application template I could use for my application. As I poked around, I noticed that the template allowed me to add a simple menu to my application and that worked for me.

When to Check for Updates
Mon, Aug 11th 2014 7:12a   John Wargo
I’ve been trying to build a sample application using Ionic, an HTML5 framework specifically designed for hybrid applications. I read the instructions, downloaded the code and initiated the command to create a new project. What happened? Failure. I posted my issue on their forum only to be told that my Cordova development environment must be old. I explained that it was all up to date and working perfectly for every other Cordova development I’ve ever done and what I got for my trouble was

CEF & Monty Python
Mon, Aug 4th 2014 8:16a   John Wargo
Note: The original title for this post was supposed to be ‘How is the Chromium Embedded Framework Documentation like a Sketch from Monty Python’s Meaning of Life?’ but the title was just too long. I was getting some exercise yesterday and came up with an idea for an app I wanted to write. The app needed to work for Windows as well as Macintosh, so I started thinking about how I’d do it. I’m a big Delphi developer, and the recent Delphi tools support Windows & Macintosh, but I imag

Free Introduction to Apache Cordova
Thu, Jul 31st 2014 5:15p   John Wargo
Whenever I publish a book with my publisher, they always pick one chapter and post it online for anyone to read. Picking the right chapter has always been a challenge for me because I want them to publish a chapter that’s interesting enough to make you want to buy the book while at the same time not being so good that you get everything you need and don’t buy the book. Get it? Please buy my books. I write them because I like to write and think I have a special skill when it comes to describ

Apache Cordova API Cookbook Print Copies
Sun, Jul 13th 2014 7:12a   John Wargo
Print copies of Apache Cordova API Cookbook arrived on Friday; my expectation is that they will be available for shipment from Amazon.com and other retailers by the end of next week. This book, along with my Apache Cordova 3 Programming, provide 600 pages of coverage for Apache Cordova. These two books give mobile developers everything they need to be able to write cross-platform mobile applications using Apache Cordova or Adobe PhoneGap.

Apache Cordova API Cookbook Kindle Edition

I was poking around on Amazon yesterday and noticed that the Kindle edition of Apache Cordova API Cookbook was published back in June. You can get your copy immediately using the following link: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00LB6X2SO/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00LB6X2SO&linkCode=as2&tag=mcnsof-20&linkId=AXKNHCPITM4FNLNK.
