Webinar: History API with Syd Lawrence

On Thursday, August 18th at 16:00 UTC, the latest installment of the MDN webinar series will be presented by Syd Lawrence, on the topic of using the History API to make AJAX sites more friendly. The History API is also the topic for the August DevDerby and this week’s Ask MDN session on Twitter (which Syd will also be helping out with). So you can get your head full of History API know-how, whip up an amazing History API demo, and submit it for the DevDerby!

Syd Lawrence is a freelance front-end web developer, living in Winchester UK, who speaks at a variety of conferences and is also a part-time lecturer at Winchester University in digital media development.

This is the third MDN webinar, and our third experiment in webinar technology. This time around, we’re using BigBlueButton, an open-source web-conferencing system (thanks to our friends at Blindside Networks). It was used for the Knight-Mozilla News (MoJo) Learning Lab in July, and worked pretty well for that. Since it’s open source, if there’s something about it you don’t like, you can do something about it.

Add this event to your calendar:

To join the webinar:

  1. Go to the BigBlueButton server for Mozilla.
  2. For Full Name, enter your name.
  3. Select “Mozilla Developer Network” in the Room list.
  4. For Password, enter MDNHacks.

Webinar: Deconstructing HTML5 video (The Spirit of Indiana Jones, Redux)

Update 2011-07-20: The video recording of this webinar is now available:

On Thursday, July 14th, at 16:00 UTC, Chris Heilmann will give second in the (so far sporadic) Mozilla Developer Engagement webinar series, discussing syncing HTML5 video with Google maps, using his “Spirit of Indiana Jones” demo as an example. Chris has already blogged about this demo, so this webinar is a chance for you to take part in a conversation, rather than just receive a broadcast.

Take a look at the demo code and the blog post, and then bring your questions to the webinar session. If you have a Google account, you can post questions (or respond to others’) ahead of time in this Google Moderator series; if not, ask your questions in IRC during the session.

The webinar will be broadcast on Air Mozilla, with text chat on #airmozilla on irc.mozilla.org. (There’s an IRC widget on the Air Mozilla page if you need it.)

Add this webinar to your calendar:

Oh, by the way, HTML5 video is the theme of the Mozilla Dev Derby for July. Whether you’re new to working with HTML5 video or an “old pro” (if there is such a thing), submit a demo during July to show off your stuff and win cool prizes.
