A Digital Magazine for HTML and JavaScript Developers

ApplinessThis morning, Adobe evangelist Michael Chaize announced the release of a new digital magazine for iPad and Android tablets called Appliness. The first issue includes tons of great content from people like Michael, Piotr Walczyszyn, Andrew Trice, Christophe Coenraets, Mihai Corlan, Alan Greenblatt, Raymond Camden, Greg Wilson, Brian Leroux and myself as well as an interview with Maximiliano Firtman. I think the magazine looks great and features great articles with code samples and interactive demos. The best part is that it is totally free! So go to the Android Market (I mean, Play Store) or Apple App Store and download it today.

To learn more about the application, you can check out Appliness was built using Adobe’s Digital Publishing Suite (DPS) and Michael covers some of how it was built in his post. Of course, if you want to learn more about how to use DPS, you can check out the DPS Developer Center on the ADC.

New JavaScript and HTML5 Tutorials on the ADC

Hopefully many of you have noticed that we have been pushing for some really great content on the topics of JavaScript and HTML5. Just yesterday we published a three-part series on Backbone.js by Adobe evangelist Christophe Coenraets and the first in a series on JavaScript design patterns by Joe Zimmerman.

Late last week, we also published the second in a four part series on building applications for Android and iOS using HTML5 and JavaScript with PhoneGap. This series is by Adobe evangelist Andrew Trice.

Personally, I am excited because we have a lot more content like these coming. However, we are always looking for your feedback. As always, you can add comments or ratings to each article, but also if there is a topic you really would like to see the ADC cover, you can always suggest it via our ADC feedback forum. Our goal on the ADC is to produce content that developers want and need, so we are open to any ideas, whether they are focused on an Adobe product or not.

What’s Cool in JavaScript, HTML5 and CSS3 – Week of 1/23

As part of my job to find great authors and contributors for the ADC in the areas of HTML5 and JavaScript, I read a lot of posts from around the web on these topics. Many of these posts I find myself via Twitter or RSS feeds, while others I find through excellent resources like the JavaScript Weekly newsletter or DailyJS, among others. Those of you who follow me on either Twitter, Facebook or Google Plus will find that I regularly share these links as I find them. However, I thought it would be a useful resource to compile these each week so as to have a single, easy-to-bookmark resource listing all of best of the past week’s posts (at least, the best in my opinion). Therefore, this week, I decided to begin a new series of posts on my blog doing just that. The first of these posts I put up this morning covering 17 really great JavaScript, CSS3 and HTML5 resources you should check out, if you haven’t already.

While the post collects links from all across the community (i.e. not just Adobe), I would like to take a moment and recognize a few of this week’s contributions from Adobe and our awesome evangelism team:

Please let me know if you find these posts useful and if there is any way I can make them better.
