06.28.2006 - ModuleT Presentation

As mentioned earlier this month, I gave a talk today on the ModuleT microformat that we use in AIMPages and have made the presentation available here.

Unfortunately, the presentation wasn't recorded, but I'll be posting my notes at some point once I've had a chance to clean them up. In the meantime, if the slides raise any questions feel free to hit me with them.

On a side note, Jon Miller - the CEO of AOL - gave the keynote this morning and a bullet on one of his slides said "Standards are where its at. If its not based on a standard, its out.". We won.

Well done, today. Sorry I took over at the end. I really intended to only use 5 minutes. ; )

Hi Steve,

I came across your ModuleT presentation while looking for additional documentation/samples for building a iamalpha module. The presentation is a big help.

One thing that confuses me though that I hope you can explain. On the "edit interface" slide, there is an input box to input the title of your gamercard module - "My XBoxLive Gamer Card". Then on the next page - the View Interface page- the "My XBoxLive Gamer Card" is hard-coded as the h3. I thought that the title from the edit interface would be passed in here. That's what I was looking around to see how to do. Can you provide some clarification? Can you share the entire sourcecode for this module?

I'm wanting to build a module for my site to allow users to add a widget to their aimpage of their own custom trivia game.

The full source for the module is here:

The bits specific to the h3 are in the functions gettitle and settitle.

Feel free to hit me up through my contact form[1] if you have more questions!
