Today, Hannes and me were talking about html5 at the aptly named Brasserie Lipp for the Internet Briefing TechTalk series. There were quite a few people and it went pretty well (IMHO :)), maybe a little bit too long. Sorry about that and the hungry people.
The slides are available on slides.liip.ch, and if you want more information about html5's spread, there's more in this older blog post about the html5 feature comparison table by me.
Last Thursday I gave a techtalk  at Liip Zurich about which html 5 features are supported by what (modern) browser, incl. my personal recommendation what's worth following and what maybe not yet.
The result is this spreadsheet and these slides (but they are basically just the spreadsheet spread across many pages :))
My yesterday's demo for my little Google Gears application didn't work out as expected (Murphy's law :) ), so I created a little screencast to show, how it was supposed to work. It's available here (H.264, 4.2 MB, 1:29 long).
Just had my Google Gears presentation here at OpenExpo. The slides are already available (in German) and the little demo app is also online to be tried out.
If you missed it, I will do the same presentation at the January Webtuesday in 2008, then in English :)
Just as the advent of the Web had a profound impact on the way business is made and deals or done, the concepts under the "Web 2.0" umbrella term (social software, blogs, mashups, all the Ajax glitter etc.) are starting to influence the corporate mindset - even here in good old Switzerland. Or, along the lines of Euan Semple in "The 100% guaranteed easiest way to do Enterprise 2.0": best thing organisations can do is get out of their employees' way and let "Enterprise 2.0" happen with the least amount of control possible.
Showing a real progress bar when uploading large files is an often requested (and quite informative) feature, which is not easily doable with the way the upload handling works in PHP.
Despite the very hot and sunny weather last tuesday approx. 15 people came to listen to gere and me talking about (again) Flash vs. Ajax. The slides are here, and a pretty good summary (in german) by Leo is also available.
Tomorrow evening, another webtuesday. Once again at the Bitflux HQ with the hot topic:
Gerhard and I have finished our talk at the EuroAjax conference. Hopefully had interesting thoughts in it for everyone.
