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!
On an slightly related topic, I attended Full Frontal Conference in Brighton past Friday and one of the closing remarks from Remy Sharp was:
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
2013 Realtime Conf. – Jen Fong-Adwent from &yet on Vimeo.
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.
Ah, this was a nice surprise! And beautifully edited. Thanks JSConf.EU team!
A++++ would do it again! ;-)
Since apparently the description from my JSConf.EU talk was quite enticing, I’ve been asked to re-run the same session –or something equally fancy/funny– at Barcelona’s DevFest next Friday, 11th of October. I can’t go and do the very exact same thing, so I decided to add new and improved stuff and do the talk in Spanish AND screencast it so people who don’t speak English have a chance to get inspired/mad by my crazy ideas.
The talk is at 12:05 in the “Auditorio Vertex”.
I will also be running a hybrid between workshop and talk on Firefox OS with Brick, where I’ll demonstrate some of the new and very awesome features in Developer Tools / Simulator for Firefox OS. If you were in the Mozilla Summit you know what I’m speaking about ;-)
The workshop is at 15h at the VXS208* room.
This has been somehow quickly planned so sorry about not warning about it earlier!
*Also, I can’t stop reading VXS208 as “Visual XStudio 2008″
Tomorrow I’ll be giving a lightning talk on a project I’ve been working on for the past months at Mozilla.
Come join the meetup and RSVP if you haven’t yet. There’ll be more talks, drinks and probably pizza.
Incidentally, the meetup is hosted at Mozilla London, by none other than Angie Maguire, Morena Fiore, and also yours truly.
