In this meetup we will have two talks: The Future of WebGL with Adobe Animate & AwayJS and Better dev collaboration with code kits.
18:00: Meet and greet
18:30: The Future of WebGL with Adobe Animate & AwayJS
19:15: Better dev collaboration with code kits
See how pioneering work by the Away Foundation will open up the world of interactive web graphics with cutting-edge tools & workflows.
AwayJS is a new open source graphics animation library, built on the WebGL api for desktop & mobile content. Foundation director Rob Bateman will take us on a tour of this next-generation engine, including a preview of integration plans with the upcoming Adobe Animate CC tool
Rob Bateman is an internationally renowned web developer and open source advocate with a passion for interactive content and games. His recent work involves harnessing the power of WebGL through open source tools and libraries created for anyone to use.
In any software project, iterating quickly and smoothly is one of the key challenges for success.
A perennial source of friction is getting business people and coders collaborating well. There are a ton of good practices to get the two groups communicating better, but the one thing we can't do is actually work together hands-on. Non-coders, by definition, can't touch the code. In this talk I'll present code-kits, a software-dev technology that can change this. In the same way that real-world kits let hobbyists build amazing things, code-kits let non-programmers become hands-on participants in the development process. Check out kitcoder.com to learn more.
