I'm back with one more episode of Uncut & Unedited. This is episode number 20, and my guest is Todd Anglin. Todd is Vice President of the HTML5 Web And Mobile division of Telerik.
I see questions and comments all the time with the general sentiment “it looks nice, but who really uses PhoneGap/Apache Cordova?”. There is no way to have a finite list of everyone who uses it, but the general answer is “more people than you think”. Here are a few names that you might recognize who are using either PhoneGap or Apache Cordova in their cross-platform mobile solutions and/or tools. (PhoneGap is a distribution of Apache Cordova)
So far, HTML5 has been severely lacking when it comes to flexible GUI layouting. All that changed when Microsoft created CSS Grid Layout, which, among other things, is used to write the native HTML5 applications for Windows 8.

While playing DIRT 3, I’ve noticed a very cool triangle animation as part of their UI. Almost immediately, I thought about how to build a similar version of it using CSS3. So, in this article you’ll see an experiment about how to create a simple CSS3 loading animation.
I always knew Star Trek was more than just entertainment. Check out this cool lecture on how HTML5 can create awesome touch interfaces.
Don't just CSS3 animate -- animate multiple gears in unison (with different radii, no less).
I’ve been 'out and about' lately, attending tech conferences, meetup groups, and meeting with developers in their offices, and I am getting great feedback on mobile development & PhoneGap. There are some common questions that I am often asked, and I hope this post helps everyone understand PhoneGap better.
A recent survey by IDC and Appcelerator revealed that developer interest in Android app development is steadily decreasing, while iOS development remains #1, Windows Phone 7 interest remains high and HTML5 integration is more popular than ever.
Roshan Abraham sent us a link to this web browser game that uses an iOS device as the controller, reading the accelerometer values and pushing them to a node.js server. WARNING: This demo may cause a significant decrease in workplace productivity!
The W3C just released a Working Draft of the CSS Variables module -- a potentially massive upgrade -- and needs your feedback. Terence Ryan offers an early response, mixing enthusiasm for the idea with some misgivings about the implementation.
This draft does have a few flaws, but overall it is a step in the right direction. It can provide a powerful new tool for those of us that manage hundreds and possibly thousands of lines of CSS and I see no reason why adding a new feature would make any of the existing features harder to learn.
I've previously looked at updates to form fields, but I had not really spent a lot of time looking at validation. I spent some time on it this week and have come away pretty impressed. Here is the first in a series of blog entries planned on the topic.
Try guessing the top five..and see which two will get shorter in ECMAScript 6.
The ECMAScript 5.1 specification states that the array method concat is generic. This post argues that that isn’t true in practice.
So now that you've learned to build static blocks in your awesome rendition of this classic game, it's time to move onto learning how to add and move a block. This is the third part of a series of tutorials that employ and explain Three.js.
HTML5 WebSockets are really great for a bi-directional TCP connection between a browser and a server, but raise a few security concerns (as you might expect).
Slides, audio, and code from Raymond Camden's recent presentation on PhoneGap at the Salt Lake ColdFusion Users Group.
The second part of the series that deals with adding static blocks. It's a short, but necessary step forward to building one of the most classic games of all time.
