CCATP #507 – Bart Busschots on PBS 42 – Playing the Game of Life

In Programming By Stealth, installment 42 of X with Bart Busschots, it’s finally time to tie all the bits and pieces we’ve learned together and create our first web app. Armed with our HTML, CSS, jQuery and JavaScript knowledge, and our Cellular Automata Prototype, Bart walks us through how to bring the Game of Life…to Life! It’s a lot of fun and I understood a great deal of it (I’m not gonna lie, it wasn’t 100% this time.)

As always Bart’s amazing tutorial for this episode is available at: bartbusschots.ie/…

CCATP #501 Bart Busschots – PBS 39 of x – HTML5 Form Validation

This week Bart Busschots joins us to talk about HTML Form Validation. We’ll get back to our Cellular Automata next week. Bart has also decided that we’re going to get our feet a little bit yet by using GitHub where we’ll be getting the challenges and solutions from now on. You can see Bart’s awesome tutorial at bartbusschots.ie/…

CCATP #492 Bart Busschots – PBS 36 of x – More HTML Text Input | More Cellular Automata

Chit Chat Across the Pond this week is another episode of Programming By Stealth with Bart Busschots. I’m very proud of the fact that I completed my homework, writing a program from scratch that passed all of the tests written by Bart. It took me 12 hours, and nearly 4 hours of Dorothy’s time helping me do it, but I got ‘er done. In this installment, 36 of x, we learn some more HTML, specifically about all the cool things the input tag can do, like creating invisible forms which is just weird but also very cool. The challenge this week is a flip on last week. This week Bart has written the next bit of code for us and we have to create the tests. It’s as challenging as all the rest but it’s just as fun. And of course you can find Bart’s fabulous tutorial show notes at bartbusschots.ie/…

NC #628 Dumb Question Corner, B&H Photo, GoPro Karma Drone, Hunting Black Bars of Doom

Chit Chat Across the Pond Lite and Programming By Stealth are both searchable now in iTunes, the Apple Podcasts app, along with Downcast, Pocketcasts and Overcast. I put out a call for help – I need recorded reviews some time next week for the following week’s show because we’re going on yet another vacation. Videos are now a button on the podfeet.com home page so you can get to them more easily and I explain how Helma helped me make that happen. In Dumb Question Corner I’ll answer Rod Simmons’s boss’s question about how to mark up emails on an iPad Pro. We’ve got two more NAB 2017 interviews: we’ll talk to B&H about their mobile microphones, and GoPro about their new Karma Drone. I’ll walk you through all of the intricacies of tech goodness in how I think I’ve finally rid podfeet.com of the Black Bars of Doom (trademark Donald Burr).

CCATP #474 Bart Busschots PBS 29 – JS Prototype Revision | Glyph Icons

I don’t want to jinx anything here, but I feel like I’m finally starting to “get” this JavaScript programming thing. In this episode of Programming By Stealth, Bart starts by talking about how we solved the challenges from last week, getting rid of “bad smells” by learning how to reuse our code. Then Bart teaches us about another bad smell, where inadvertently point two variables point the same object and he teaches us about the clone function to eradicate that problem. With that bite-sized JavaScript lesson behind us, he takes us forward into learning about Glyph Icons, a way of having scalable icons on our web pages instead of pixel-based icons. He introduces us to Font Awesome tool to get free access to (awesome) scalable glyph icons. The full tutorial is available at bartbusschots.ie/….

CCATP #472 – Bart Busschots PBS 28 – CSS Attribute Selectors & HTML Buttons

In this week’s installment of Programming By Stealth, Bart teaches us about how to change the look of HTML buttons using their CSS attributes. It’s great fun, but I have to confess we don’t actually get to the new stuff till over an hour into the show! We had so much fun going through the homework from last time that we lost track of time. I was so excited because I’d worked really hard on my homework this time and was able to actually conquer the first two parts (with some help from my friends) but I did struggle a bit with the third piece where I had to assemble them together. Anyway, we decided it’s ok if you skip ahead to the CSS parts if you like; it starts at an hour and six minutes in.

CCATP #460 Shelly Brisbin on Self-Publishing

We’re joined by Shelly Brisbin, author of the book iOS Access for All and host of The Parallel Podcast. As she’s written more than a dozen tech books, I asked her to come on the show to explain how she creates her books, what tools she uses, and how she migrated from using an agent and a big publishing house to doing self publishing. It’s a really fun episode because while you’d think creating a book is all about writing, Shelly gets into how she uses TextWrangler and writes her own Cascading Style Sheets to create her books.

You can find Shelly on Twitter @shelly and you can find her book at iosaccessbook.com/…, and The Parallels Podcast at parallelpodcast.com/….

CCATP #459 Bart Busschots Programming By Stealth 23 – Creating Elements with jQuery

PBS_Logo.pngIn this installment of Programming By Stealth, we’re working towards our first truly practical assignment in the series – a function that finds all links on a page, and if, and only if, they lead to an external page, alters them to open in a new tab, and appends an icon indicating that fact. Bart’s amazing full on tutorial is over at bartbusschots.ie/…. I also mention a fun little jQuery Easter egg, which you can find at citymapper.com. Just follow the link and open the console on your favorite browser and you’ll find a text based adventure game!

CCATP #455 Bart Busschots Programming By Stealth 21 – jQuery Basics

PBS_Logo.pngIn this installment of Programming By Stealth, Bart Busschots continues our baby steps into jQuery, keeping us inside the JavaScript console. He reviews some html and css basics and then teaches us how to select elements with jQuery, limit the search, and filter the results. Then he shows us how to start changing the css using jQuery, even including function chaining I interrupt him with a lot of questions (as always) but it’s a terrific episode that was really fun. You can find the full written tutorial at bartbusschots.ie/….

NC #565 Judiciary Hearing FBI vs Apple, Nuke and Pave vs OmniDiskSweeper, Security Bits

I watched the entire five hours of the Judiciary Committee Hearings in the case of the FBI vs. Apple, so you didn’t have to. I think you’ll like what you hear, it’s actually optimistic about our government officials. Next up I’ll tell you how I did not do a nuke and pave, and why you should do what I say, not what I do. Then we’ll have a monster Security Bits with Bart Busschots.
