Our goal was to upload a video once and have it populate onto our homepage, custom video player, mobile site and even third-party sites (like home owner's associations). We also added a way for residents to share our videos on Facebook and Twitter. All this was possible using YouTube and their Data API.
In this session, I will show developers how easy it is to help set their organization’s YouTube video content free.

We’ve been searching for layout techniques for a long time! In fact, since the days of tables, we've not found solutions to a wide range of layout problems within the presentation layer of front-end development. Part of this is due to delays in implementation, but there’s a lot to look at as we move forward. Topics covered include CSS3 Multicolumn Layout, Grids, CSS Regions and the Flexible Box Model. Examples of these features and how they work will be provided, and resources for future study of these techniques and implementations round out the session.
