Tutorial: Grabbing Popular Dribbble Shots Dynamically via jQuery

Compared with any other design network Dribbble always seems to come out on top. The quality of submissions is beyond comprehension to most graphics designers, especially with mobile/web user interfaces. There are so many amazing shots published every day but it’s tough to keep up with the constant flow of new publications.

In this tutorial I want to demonstrate how we can build a small webapp which dynamically pulls all the most recent popular shots from Dribbble. The interface is very simple to work with and we want to create all these effects without refreshing the page. For organizing the backend data I’ll be using a custom jQuery plugin named jribbble.

Tutorial: Coding a jQuery Popup Modal Contact Form

Modal windows have become a popular asset for web & mobile developers. iPhone and iPad applications have such a limited screen real estate that it’s useful to bring in additional menus floating on top of the view. This concept also translates well into webpage interfaces where you can hide smaller, minute details.

In this tutorial I’ll demonstrate how we can build a minimalist modal contact form. I’ll be using jQuery along with the fancybox plugin to manage dynamic content. The open source code libraries make scripting so much easier. And we can implement a small Ajax call which submits the form data via PHP on the server end.
