18:30: In Browser Video Editing and WebRTC, Hal Saleh
19:15: Introduction to Meteor, Richard Silverton
About the speaker:
Richard Silverton: "Whilst I've spent most of my career in finance, I've become an enthusiastic amateur developer, originally using Django and Flask before switching to Node.js and exclusively Meteor.js over the past six months. As well as several hobby projects (eg. summerleague.meteor.com, fantasybiathlon.meteor.com and fixturemaker.richsilv.webfactional.com), I am hoping to launch my own football-related web app within the next month."
Hal Saleh: "I started coding from the age of twelve. Built database systems and web sites while in college. Studied computer science at university and there I built a Virtual Learning Environment for use by lower education. I joined Cisco Systems after graduating and stayed there for four and-a half years. I am currently at Burberry as a business analyst."
About the talks:
An introduction to the Meteor.js framework, comprising a brief history and timeline for the project, the main advantages and appeal of the framework and a live coding demonstration of how easy it is for an amateur to throw up a working, responsive website in a matter of minutes. Also, some examples of impressive commercial sites that have already been deployed with Meteor.
A lightning talk showing how to do in-browser video editing and WebRTC.
