The video is the best part, at learntoprogram.tv, but the code is excerpted below: With just a little Javascript knowledge you can create a sliding div effect that is commonly seen on the web.

Mark Lassoff of LearnToProgram.tv I was very lucky to catch Mark Lassoff in between speaking at DevLearn, working on his forthcoming book from Focal Press, and producing his next training video for the company he founded, LearnToProgram.tv. Mark is an anomoly in the world of elearning these days, because he knows how to code. [Awesome elearning interview here.] Now for a few personal questions that... Continue reading

I play a game with myself -- I use my laptop, unplugged, and when the battery runs down, I put the computer down. Step away from the laptop! I'm curious about your project idea. Can you figure out how to reach me? (Hint: google me!)

A happy drunk keeps striking conversation with a coiffed yuppie right in front of me on the bus. It's rush hour and hot. This drunk has the markings of a player. His shiny shirt unbuttons to gold, a chain punctuated by a shout out to Jesus. His prey looks busy texting and her long pale neck makes all men fidget and lick their lips. She is lovely. Her posture makes me want to obey. She retorts to the Latin lover with abrupt remarks for which he has no further woo. He looks wounded, a couple more times he gestures to... Continue reading

FOMO is the Fear of Missing Out. It's a powerful force that has been sweeping the nation--and world. Or should I say swiffering the nation? (Shout out to Dane Cook.)... Continue reading

Stage actors often play little games backstage to warm up for a performance. The games open the vocal chords, the mind, and the spirit. Those games have become their own performance now--improv artists do shows all over, impressing the audience with their quick wit and ability to adapt to any situation thrown at them. Do you want quick wit? Do you want to adapt to... Continue reading

It never gets old. It never stops being amazing that some spark, some energy, gets embedded into a poem and then downloads into the reader's mind, scans the heart's address book, and emails every cell in the body with an attachment that, when opened, can erase everything. We want words to go viral at jazzjune.com. The official launch is just past May. We are jazzed by the poetry submitted, the artists eager to share photos, paintings, videos and music, and by the support of writers, friends, and family. I want to emphasize our interest in poems by poets at all... Continue reading
