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!
I attended the Mozilla on Android impromptu meeting at the London office yesterday. Although I was quite tired I found it all really informative and quite enjoyed the presentations. Since it was all organised in a very quick/improvised way, many people couldn’t attend, so I’ll quickly go through what they covered in case anyone is/was interested.
Just a quick note to announce that we’ll be having the London Lua User Group meet up happening at the Mozilla London office this Thursday 17 October at 18.30h, and I’ve stepped up to host it!
Although I don’t use Lua these days I still have sympathy for it and I’m curious to hear about the latest developments. John Graham-Cunning will be telling us about balloons controlled with Lua and low latency firewalls.
If you don’t know John, he successfully campaigned to get the British government to apologise over their (mis)treatment of Alan Turing. He is also working on building an analytical engine, and many more interesting projects, so I’m pretty sure it’s going to be an interesting meeting!
Note: the title of this post is the title of the meetup. I haven’t titled it myself! I’ve added quotes to reflect this :-)
Note: These are the notes on my talk about Mozilla Brick at Over The Air 2013. Sadly it wasn’t recorded, and I got kind of nervous and forgot to press the “REC” button in Quicktime, so I didn’t “screencast” it either. You can also check the original slides for maximum impact.
UI components for modern web apps
Now for something completely different (sort of). Instead of music and graphics, I’ll be talking at about Mozilla Brick and how you can use it to build web apps, one brick at a time (you know, bad puns are a thing).
The conference is Over The Air, held at the mighty, legendary and historical BLETCHLEY PARK. YES! Where Alan Turing and the rest of the gang worked during World War II on breaking the German coded messages. ISN’T IT AMAZING!!?!?!
So, come to my session. 27th September, 16h (in lanyrd).
Mortar and bricks will be provided, no need to bring your own. But I’ll tell you all about baking your own specially designed bricks.
UPDATE: Here are the slides and the source code + sample apps.
