Learn more at http://processingjs.org/ Mozilla are about to release the and tags over the next couple of weeks in Firefox 3.5. Christopher Blizzard from Mozilla asked Al to create a couple of Javascript demos for the release project ("35 Days"). He thought it would be fun to show the group what he's been doing and give members a basic starter on how to access the new media capabilities of the browser with Javascript. (As well as demonstrate how easy it is to make interactive visualizations with Processing.js.) Take a look at some of Al's Processing.js experiments here, remember this is all Javascript. No Flash: http://www.hyper-metrix.com/processing-js/docs/. Bring your laptops as you will be able to interact with Al's presentation in real-time. After the presentation | demonstration, we will go around the room introducing ourselves and asking the group for advice | opinions on any JavaScript-related issues members are facing. Microsoft will provide pizza again. What a nice company! Please RSVP and bring guests. We always have lots of pizza left over.
