Reports from conferences I've attended, and ones I've spoken at!
Last week, I spoke at AKQA Anoraks on Real Time Communications with WebRTC. I spoke about the WebRTC project and specification; and how we can output the webcam and microphone streams to the HTML5 video element and Web Audio API to create fun effects.
I received some great interest from the talk on the night, so thanks to everyone who came. The slides to my talk are available here. If you already follow my blog you may notice it was loosely based on a couple of blog posts I wrote last July; but updated to include the latest developments in the specification.
I'm interested in re-running this talk at meet ups and conferences near London, so if you are interested please get in contact!
Last week Adobe announced the launch of a new suite of tools for the web known as Edge. In conjunction with this release, they are touring four locations across the globe to discuss the future of the web, and the future of web tools. It was London's turn this week, and I had the opportunity to take a training day at work and attend.
A rainy April Saturday in North Greenwich (London) was the host of this year's State of the Browser; where a representative from four of the five browser vendors spoke about how their browsers have progressed in the last year and what we have to look forward to going forward.
I wanted to write up my notes on the jQuery UK Conference as I had an amazing time. Apologies to anybody who follows me on Twitter who didn't want to know about the conference, you were probably spammed a bit. But shame on you for not wanting to know!! This isn't a concise write-up of everything that happened, but is more what I took from the conference (what I learnt/found relevant to me .etc) Yesterday I travelled to Oxford to attend the jQuery UK conference, which the team at White October carefully crafted together. The snow threatened to stop me, but thankfully calmed down by the morning. So a quick hop, skip and jump on to a train and coach; and I found myself in Oxford at the Saïd Business School.
