Dipping Your Toes in the jQuery Mobile Ocean

jQuery Mobile might seem like a real sea monster, so let's tame it!

jan jorgensenWritten by Jan Jorgensen

Summer is here in Denmark, and that means vacation and spending time with the family. No work, no stress, just a pale body in the sun. Many people buy a good book and spend the free hours reading it; others make puzzles or look after the garden. What do I do? Every summer, I tend to challenge myself by learning some new "computer" fun. This year I have decided it should be jQuery Mobile version 1.4+.

Get Moving with Mobile Apps Using Cordova, Part 2

Continuing our sojourn into building mobile apps with ease.

jeff olenWritten by Jeff Olen

In part 1 of this series, we installed all the necessary software and even got a shell mobile app working. Now the fun begins. In this installment, we're going to start building a simple To-Do list application. We won't build the backend database today (that's part 3). For now, we'll create the list entries in the Document Object Model (DOM), but they won't get saved anywhere and so will not persist between executions of the app.

The Explosion of Security Vulnerabilities Requires Diligent Act with Carol Woodbury & special guest Jeff Uehling

Carol is pleased to be joined for this Coffee with Carol by friend and former colleague Jeff Uehling, current Chief Security Architect for IBM i.  Jeff and Carol will be discussing a number of the recent Security Vulnerabilities which have had a huge, industry-wide impact on both hardware and software vendors - including IBM and the IBM i development groups. These security vulnerabilities include well-publicized ones such as Heartbleed, Bash/Shellshock and Poodle as well as numerous vulnerabilities that haven’t hit the media. These vulnerabilities exist in areas such as Java, OpenSSL and many networking areas of your systems.

 

IBM i has long been known as a secure platform on which you can run your business critical applications. However, securing the system requires careful attention to the system-wide security configuration options, managing the authority settings on your data objects which contain your business critical data (corporate assets), and - as importantly - staying current with your enterprise-wide maintenance and ensure the latest PTFs/Fixes are installed in order to close "real" or "potential" security holes.
