Life and Code

So you want to be a developer?

I came across this series on YouTube today. It takes an animated (pun intended) approach to helping students figure out if a career in development is for them.

This is my no means an exhaustive explanation of what being a developer really is like, but it’s a good place to start.

jQuery Drag & Drop

I’ve been trying to learn jqGrid lately, which is a plugin for jQuery. I came across a “drag and drop” table function in jqGrid, which I thought was really cool. While trying to play around with the “DnD” tables, I found out that it’s based on jQuery’s “draggable” and “droppable” properties. A Google search lead me to this tutorial: (link)

I think it’s a great tutorial to help you get started with DnD in jQuery, and it’s easy enough for a novice like me to follow!

I’ve noticed a severe lack of jqGrid tutorials (especially using json local data and DnD tables), so I’ll be putting up a tutorial of my own shortly.
