Just this Wednesday Allen Partridge and I did another widget eSeminar. In this one we built a widget that (with a bit of polishing) you would actually use in one of your courses - a mouse replacer widget!
To do that, we took the widget we built in the first eSeminar, and expanded it to access a slide object, and then make that slide object follow the mouse around. It was a lot of fun, and a very good way to get up to speed on building widgets (especially if you don’t have the patience to read blog posts (like me)).
Still not convinced? Then I encourage you to see how we manage to keep the seminar going when A: My phone starts beeping to inform me that I’m inches away from a dead battery, and B: Allen’s microphone breaks.
Before barreling off to see the most recent eSeminar, I suggest you have a squiz at the first one to get up to speed: http://bit.ly/aYnFah”
Once you’ve viewed that, by all means, venture into the wonderful world of widget <insert another word that starts with ‘w’ here>: http://bit.ly/dUp5zM
