Introduction and Project Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Alfredo Lopez. I am a senior front end engineer at Hearst Magazines. My latest projects include a CMS from the ground up, along with a redesign cosmopolitan. com. In this course we're going to learn how to create a dynamic and flexible slideshow. Some of the major topics that we will be discussing in this course will include efficient programming techniques, how to get maximum performance in multiple devices, tricks and workarounds for browser and device differences, memory allocation and garbage collection, and finally, image management and loading techniques. By the end of the training, you will have learned how to create a complete flexible and scalable slideshow. I'm excited to work with Digital-Tutors and share these valuable tricks and techniques with fellow developers. So let's get started with the first lesson.
