jQuery, the most popular JavaScript library, solves cross-browsers issues, dynamically manipulates just about any element on your site, handles events, validates forms, builds interactive galleries and much more, with minimal line of script. We’ll learn how to use jQuery to “write less and do more.” This course isn’t just about making things fly around on the page and plugging pre-made slideshows into our pages. We’ll be digging deep, spending enough time with the core JavaScript language so we know what we’re doing when writing out own complex web app interactions and creating out own plug-ins.

Prerequisites: Web Development Bootcamp, HTML5/CSS3 Bootcamp or equivalent knowledge

Course Dates: Starts September 8, 2014 and meets Monday and Wednesday evenings from 6-9pm for 8 consecutive weeks (9/8, 9/10, 9/15, 9/17, 9/22, 9/24, 9/29, 10/1, 10/6, 10/8, 10/13, 10/15, 10/20, 10/22, 10/27, 10/29).

Enrollment Deadline: Friday, August 29

Handroll To Add SEO to HTML 5 Video

You know how important SEO is for getting web traffic (if you don’t, we’ll tell you). But video has always been tricky to optimize for search engines. And the Social Media side? Pretty much limited to “liking”, linking, and pasting. According to ReadWriteWeb, is trying to change all that. Positioning itself as the video equivalent of WordPress, founder Scott Rafer points out that “HTML5 video makes it very tough to hide anything—media files, player code, usage, video description metadata, social gestures, editing layers, and a hundred other savory morsels.” This is important stuff that HTML5 currently ignores while Flash handles with them with ease. But with HTML5 video owning 54% of the market and growing as of October 2010, it’s more important than ever to know how to deal with its limitations.

Firesheep Sidejacks Your Internet

According to CNN, that paradise called free Wi-Fi just got a little less heavenly. If you like to use Facebook, Gmail, or dozens of other “secure” websites while out and about, you might be at risk of exposure. Free or Open Wi-Fi spots are vulnerable to a new Firefox extension called Firesheep that allows anyone on the same Wi-Fi network as you to see all your non-encrypted data, to log in as you, be you, and screw you over by messing with your stuff. It’s that simple. And if that wasn’t bad enough, it’s easier to figure out than most of Facebook. Way easier. And while we don’t approve of sidejacking, we’d be happy to show you how. Or how to protect yourself. Post questions on our DBC Facebook Page.
