Finally, a brand spanking new version of Coda-Slider. Some links:

Some quick info about the redesign of this site, which went live back on September 26th.
Before this redesign, there was just ndoherty.com, where the primary focus was on web development. With the redesign, I decided I needed two sites: ndoherty.com became devoted to my thoughts on personal growth, while ndoherty.biz now plays host to the web design goodness. No point mixing those two subjects all together on one site.
The design of both sites is exactly the same, except for some subtle color differences.
Lucky me was given the opportunity to review Learning jQuery 1.3, so that’s what I’m going to do in this post. You can buy the book via this link, and the full 12% referral commission I get from your purchase will be donated to the Humane Society of Louisiana.
But don’t go clicking and buying just because you like puppies. Read on to find out if this book is right for you, and there’s even a link to a free chapter at the bottom of this post so you can get a feel for it.
First off, a disclaimer: I’m not a hardcore programmer by any means. Functions and arguments and variable scopings make my head spin. I’m more of a jack-of-all-trades web developer who knows enough programming to hack away at some Ruby on Rails or PHP or jQuery and come away with something nice. Rarely something perfect, but nice nonetheless.
Just a quick heads up regarding a new resource site I set up about jQuery CDN’s. Cruise over there and you can find out why it’s a good idea to let a content delivery network (like Google, Microsoft or jQuery.net) host your jQuery files, and how you can make it happen.
UPDATE: (Oct. 26th, 2009): I’ve just released a new version of Coda-Slider. Check out the details here. The original version referred to in this post remains available for download.
So I finally found time to add a much-requested feature to Coda-Slider: Different classes for each tab. Now you can target individual tabs and give each one a different look. In the new demo, you’ll see that I just used different background colors to illustrate this feature, but of course you can use images if you like.As this is just a minor addition, I’m calling the updated version “Coda-Slider 1.1.1″. Makes sense to me.
Apologies again that I haven’t been able to respond to all your comments and emails regarding Coda-Slider. I hope you understand that it’s just something I put together for fun and experience, and it’s difficult to spend time maintaining it when I have paying jobs on offer.
