Connecting the Dots: Using HTML5, jQuery, and Web API Together

  • Mar 6, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Today, users expect more out of web applications than ever before. They expect your web applications to be as rich and interactive as native applications. In this session, I will demonstrate how to use Web API to create RESTful web services; to call those services from client-side code with jQuery; and tie it together with HTML5. You will learn how to use the tools for building robust, interactive applications that run in a browser.

    Ritesh, Phil, with all due respect, what one should expect from "connecting the dots" if not fundamentals? While the word "concur" is very eloquent and direct, the "connecting the dots" is quite a simplistic, basic English phrase. Pun intended. Grin.

      'Connecting the dots' is a phrase that depends on context. Then again it was a very 101 talk. Nothing bad about that David's talk was very appropriate for that level (maybe not for a majority of the group though).

      Robert Skassa, thanks for the due respect. With due respects to you too, connecting the dots means to me- I am not going to explain the dots to you but going to show you how they relate/work together. Even in the game "Connect the dots", you are trying to connect dots to form an intricate figure; not a stick-man. Rather than going back and forth on the past, let's be happy we had free dinner, free information, a great speaker and great company of other developers who want to learn.

    I think the quality was good. However, we should of had been told in advance that the talk would be elementary and geared towards newbies.

    Well done, well thought out. He covered the basic concepts and then used them together in a demo app. I hope he will make the slides available.
