(and some notes about CascadiaJS 2013)
Here’s the video from my talk at CascadiaJS:
I’m still in Vancouver and need to stay awake so that I don’t go to sleep ridiculously early and wake up at an equally ridiculously early hour too, so I decided to post the sketches I drew while at Full Frontal conference a couple of weeks ago:
These being pictures taken with the phone using precarious lightning, the quality is not exactly stellar but I hope you’ll enjoy the sketches anyway!
I’m super ultra thrilled to say that I’m speaking at CascadiaJS next week*, on Audio Tags: Web Components + Web Audio = <3. The agenda seems not to be finalised yet so I don’t know when is my talk scheduled, but if you want to learn more about my latest delirium, and will attend CascadiaJS, then it’s your chance to get immersed in my soley-loquy (HA HA–isn’t it amazing to make words up!?)
I’m equally excited that I’m going to be in Vancouver for the first time, as I’ve never been so far up north-west. If Vancouver is at least as equally great as Toronto was, it’s going to be an extraordinary stay. It definitely has a bunch of great people already lined up!
BLOG! BLOG MORE! BLOGGING IS GOOD!
Which makes me feel guilty that I still haven’t published my very thorough and long post on MozFest which I attended two weeks ago, but it’s missing all the pictures which might make it more palatable, and I’ve been busy preparing my CascadiaJS’s talk, so it’ll have to wait.
I am also doing Nanodrawmo again this year, and even managed to convince some people in the office to join the challenge (Hi Zac! Hi Melissa!). So I drew every speaker from Full Frontal Conference instead of taking pictures and stuff. I will scan everything and publish it when I’m back from Vancouver, but in the meantime here’s a taster of the Duke of York cinema while waiting for the conference to start:
* It’s probably a tad too late to post about CascadiaJS there, but I don’t think anyone is going to attend a conference only because I am speaking at it anyway
Just wanted to show you my hardware test pattern and a bit of how my “installation” for MozFest will look like:
I’ll be at the Science Fair tomorrow afternoon/evening as part of the “make the web physical” area, so you can try and build some melodies with this!
See you there!
My colleague Jen gave this quick talk at Realtime Conf on Saturday in her new hipstown, Portland. She explains her approach to programming, and how she’s building small pieces of software that interoperate together at API-level to create larger projects that interoperate together at message-level. This translates in federated blogs, chats and even some crazy WebRTC/GIF chat that I helped a little bit with and everybody loves. And all this because Yahoo! bought Tumblr!
Jen’s modular/federated philosophy has been a great source inspiration for me lately, and I was thrilled when I listened to Mitchell Baker defend a similar approach in her Summit keynote.
