HDMS 2012 Agenda

HDMS 2012 Agenda mobile site

A (very) small mobile site I built for an upcoming business conference. They just wanted something small, easy to browse, and easy to update. The site is actually a single page, with sections hidden by CSS and revealed with JavaScript using the hashchange event.

An alternate version of the site was also built when we realized that Blackberry phones don’t support the hashchange event, and at least one of the client contacts used a Blackberry on a regular basis. Both versions obtain their content from the same source using server-side includes, making them maintenance-free and easier for the client to update as needed.

Development links

jQuery UI 1.9 – New widgets, new APIs, and a whole new look to the site. (UPDATE: version 1.9.1 is out.)

Google Static Maps wizard and Google styled maps wizard – How did I not find these sooner? When embedding Google Maps in a webpage, it’s fun to embed a dynamic map, but faster and lighter to use the Static Maps API. Either way, these Google-built wizards will make preparing them much faster.
