February 10th was webOS Hackday at the Liip Zurich Office. Palm provided some brand new Pre 2 developer devices to try out and keep (!). I started with talking about cross-platform development options (PhoneGap, jQuery Mobile, Jo) and how they can be used on webOS. We next talked about and went through a short tutorial about the Palm specific Mojo Framework for development. More hands-on learning was made with going through some application examples (RSS Reader with YQL, HTML5 Canvas and Audio and using Webservices).
I'm organizing a webOS Development Hackday at Liip. Join me on February 10th at the Liip Zurich Office.
There will be two days of hacking on Symfony2 at the Symfony Live conference in San Francisco on February 5th/6th. Liip want's to make sure Europe doesn't miss out on the fun! Basically we will keep the Zurich office doors open both days from 10:00 to 18:00 (with a high likely hood of a bar crawl on Saturday) if there is interest.
Liip's Zürich offices recently got featured in TEC21, a renowned Swiss architecture journal, under the title of "Atmosphäre des Digitalen". Apart from discussing some special features of our operating base, the article critically ponders the notion of "intellectual sensualism" as well as aspects of the relations between architecture and the kind of stuff we do - we use architectural design patterns, they give us software-generated tapestry (picture above). If you're interested: here's the PDF of the entire article - enjoy.
We want to mark an event for the highlights of this eventful past year. And we definitely want to have a drink with all the people who contributed to our success: our clients, partners, friends and the entire Liip team. And of course, as promised, with everybody that helped winning this year's Master of Swiss Web award. So we're inviting all of you to our Award Night, in order to say thank you, to celebrate and perhaps even dance a bit!
The 28.th User Group Meeting of the SFUG (Swiss Flash User Group) will take place next Tuesday, October 20th, at the Liip office in Zurich.

New group-members are more than welcome, just come by and join us! See you there.
After a long summer break the Swiss Flash User Group (SFUG) is finally coming back to life. The meeting that ended the break in the middle of October was a quite enjoyable get-together with two liipish presentations on an experimental development with ZINC and an internally developed workflow approach called AssetMapping to ease the work between designer and developer (stay tuned for more news on these two topics).
As mentioned on yesterday's Webtuesday, there's a little webtuesday sideevent next tuesday.
Just to make sure nobody, really nobody forgets about this: OpenExpo Zürich takes place today and tomorrow, Wednesday & Thursday (19/20.09), presenting a wide range of highlights from international as well as local Open Source area, the keynote speeches by Chris DiBona (Google) and Georg Greve (FSFE) or the OpenMoko presentation are just a tiny bit of them. Liip is having two presentations, too, Chregu on "Offline Web Apps with Google Gears" and Kus with "Moodle - Open Source Enterprise E-Learning".
