Here at Odopod, the dev team meets weekly to talk about what's happening with technology around the web. Here's our top this week:
• Cool: Everything.
• Not cool: It won't be released as open source (hey the man needs to make money right?)
scene.nr - Eddie Abrams' HTML5 audio project.
• Cool: HTML5 Winamp port including Winamp skin loading.
• Not cool: It still relies on Flash to grab the raw audio data.
UI Thread Presentation - Nicholas C. Zakas' super interesting talk from the jQuery conference.
• Cool: Understanding the inner workings of the UI Thread allows us to be smarter about page loading as well as maximizing user perception of speed.
• Not cool: The UI thread is a linear queue of execution.
Web Workers - Defines an API for running scripts in the background independently of any user interface scripts.
• Not cool: Only Firefox 3.5 and Safari 4 currently support this.
Throughout the conference it was evident that talks and takeaways were more far reaching than the world of jQuery alone. This was not, by any means, a conference about pure evangelism. This approach, in my mind, made the conference even more of a success.
We're still in San Francisco, still under the same leadership, still doing great work (here are some case studies). But now we're a lot larger. We've joined a host of Nurun offices around the globe, all part of Publicis Worldwide.
Our focus remains on helping clients succeed in a connected world with products and services that transform the consumer experience.
We continue to work with forward-thinking, longstanding clients including Tesla, Google, Sony and Audemars Piguet. More recently, we've established new relationships with Dolby, the San Francisco 49ers, GoPro, and Blu Homes.
We welcome the opportunity to work with you too.
