Florida 2012 - 2nd to 5th April, 2012

Event Schedule:

As a powerful, flexible, easy to learn, and easy to deploy language, PHP provides a platform for an easy transition into web technologies for Multivalue BASIC developers. In this session we'll look at the basics of PHP and discuss how we can leverage our U2 data and programming from a web context.

Apache and PHP have become a popular framework and platform for Web 2.0 and HTML5 development. Since they are both Open Source, you can find precompiled applications for just about any OS and hardware being used.

Now the MultiValue developers don't need to feel left out. In this session we'll show how easy it is to download, install, and start working with Apache and PHP.

The jQuery UI framework provides a rich (and growing) set of user interface features that can make the browser just as powerful, if not more so, than any dedicated GUI. And being a web technology, it's available right now, and for nearly every browser out in the wild today. Come learn more about how a couple simple lines of Javascript can transform the most mundane user interface into something truly extraordinary.

Cascading Style Sheets provide a powerful way to take an otherwise ordinary web page and transform it into something beautiful. But with over 100 different descriptors for styling a single web page, how do you know where to start? In this session we'll look at the basics of CSS and show you how to make some cool stuff happen without a lot of time or effort.

jQuery Mobile is the latest Open-Source framework to make mobile website development easy. jQuery mobile is an extension of jQuery, and provides developers with a predefined GUI and Navigation components designed for touch screens and mobile devices.

If you are looking at developing a mobile device, then this is a good starting point to make your website function and look like a mobile app without learning a lot of design.
