February User Group Meeting – CANCELED!

Tuesday, February 1st, 2011

Due to sub-zero temperatures, we’ve suffered our first cancellation in the two plus years we’ve existed as a user group. This is a big deal! Sure we don’t have a lot of issues with bad weather (we get one or two freezes a year), but there have been other close calls: The Sun Microsystems building closed on us, and the Rangers had a World Series home game that missed us by one day. But a little weather… BAM! Closed. Okay, it’s not a little. Things don’t look bad because it rained and then the temperature dropped. So we don’t have the usual frozen trees and bushes that make it look like an icy tundra. Just unpassable roads.

We’ll be back on schedule next month. See you all March 1st!

Video: SSJS, NoSQL, GAE, and AppEngineJS

Thursday, August 5th, 2010

Eugene talks about the next wave of web Server-Side JavaScript, NoSQL databases and how they fit into the Internet timeline. NoSQL is just a fad right? Ever hear of Big Table?

The video is posted here, and the presentation will be available soon.

Video: HTML5 Video Explained

Wednesday, July 14th, 2010

From the July Club AJAX meeting: What is HTML5 Video and how is it different from what we are used to? What problems does it solve, and what issues does it have? Since it doesn’t require a plugin does that mean it’s all open source? In this presentation, we will address these questions and provide some basic terminology for understanding how video works. We’ll show how to embed HTML5 Video API and explore the API, and discuss browser compatibility. Finally, we’ll go over video encoding possibilities.

New Club AJAX Video Series

Tuesday, April 13th, 2010

Last Tuesday’s meeting was a big success. Dion Hinchcliffe was fact filled, enlightening and entertaining as always. After the meeting I personally felt the urge to go back to my company and tell them all the business opportunities that are currently available. We are very proud and very lucky to have had him speak at our group!

If you missed it, do not fear. His presentation is available here (the main one – the other has not been made public). But even better – the video is posted here.

Of course, Club AJAX has posted plenty of videos before, but starting with this one they are now hosted and edited by BetterVideo™. No longer are they stationary camera shots. They are now professional edited and slickly produced! Going by the standards of YUI Theater, the new BetterVideo-produced Club AJAX videos exceed them in quality! Of course the video already had great content thanks to Dion, but now our videos are and will be that much more watchable.

Enjoy!
