Update 2011-11-10: Video of this webinar is now available:
You can download the code that Rob demos in the webinar.
You might also check out the recording of the webinar created by BigBlueButton. It syncs the audio with the slides and chat window using Popcorn.js. On the downside, BBB starts recording as soon as anyone joins the conference audio bridge, which in this case happened an hour before the webinar started. Fast-forward to time 58:20 for the start of the webinar.
Canvas is the topic for the November Dev Derby. Rob is planning to show how to make an image editor for avatars using Canvas. Spark your imagination with the webinar, create some new and amazing use of Canvas, and submit it to the Dev Derby.
We will use BigBlueButton for web-conferencing, and will avoid using the feature that led to the server problems with the September webinar. We will be recording the session, and I promise to double- and triple-check the recording set-up in advance :-)
We’d like to get a rough estimate of how many people will be attending. If you happen to use Plancast, and you plan to attend the seminar, please join the event on Plancast.
