Visible to anyone in the world

We are now developing against Moodle 2.9, which means the new 'AMD' method for including JavaScript in Moodle plugins is available to us. (I mentioned this in my last blog post.)

The good news is that it's a lot simpler than previous methods for including JavaScript. The bad news is that it's still a change that developers need to understand, and the Moodle documentation is a bit hard to follow.

So I gave a short introductory presentation for OU developers about how to use this new method. And In case anybody else would be interested, I've attached my slides here as a PDF.

A few details mention OU things but most of it would be applicable to all Moodle developers. (To be clear, this is an introduction and doesn't get into advanced details like performance or whatever.)
