Iowa Code Camp IV – A Love Story

The 4th Iowa Code Camp is now over and my heart is broken. I wish we could do these every weekend, I had an amazing time! Also, like most code camps and conferences, it was another good opportunity to put some faces on Twitter handles and meet new people.

I had a really good turnout for my jQuery presentation (I say that because we ran out of chairs in the room), but I have a lot of improvements to make. If anybody that attended my session has any feedback they couldn’t fit on the evaluation form, please feel free to leave them in the comments.

  1. Chris,

    Really not enough room on the comment form.

    Great session. Saw a lot of jQuery that I hadn’t seen before.

    You threw out a disclaimer that if people didn’t understand the document ready example that they probably weren’t going to get much out of the session. I bet that wasn’t true as you did a good job of explaining what was going on. I think if you took 3 minutes to describe the initial code that would have been great for any newbies.

    The first few minutes were a little slow. You were talking to selectors, but not showing any examples. Once you got to the validation section, your passion for the framework really came through. I note that that was when you really started showing jQuery running and then changing things on the fly. From there we were off to the races.

    A great talk and totally worth sitting on the floor in the overflow space.

  2. Thanks for the feedback David!
