Creating Bootstrap Widgets Using Dojo at ATLUG

Thanks to Lisa and Darren Duke, I will be presenting at ATLUG on May 19, 2016 on combining my two favorite open source frameworks, Twitter Bootstrap and Dojo, to create widgets that your can use in your web-based application. This presentation is not XPages specific. The presentation will be held at the IBM Technical Exploration Center in Atlanta. So if you are a web developer using or thinking about using Dojo and Bootstrap come join me or to just listen to me rant and rave.

Creating Bootstrap Widgets Using Dojo
Twitter Bootstrap is one of the most popular responsive CSS frameworks available. Dojo is one of the most comprehensive and powerful JavaScript framework available. However, Bootstrap only comes with jQuery-based widgets by default. But if you can only combine Bootstrap and Dojo together, you as designers and developers will have an extremely powerful and flexible framework to build your applications.
Join Richard Moy from Phora Group for this fast pace learning experience on how to create your own custom Bootstrap widgets using Dojo to extend your set of tools. This session will guide you through the process of creating individual widgets, the pitfalls to watch out for, and how to add them in any Web-based application.
