Use of JavaScript in creation of robust eTextbook Reader

  • Oct 26, 2010 · 7:00 PM

JavaScripters, We've got another great presentation and sponsor for this month's Meetup. The Barnes & Noble.com NOOKstudy team will present the use of JavaScript in eTextbook Reader. Barnes & Noble.com will be sponsoring food and drinks, consisting of
reBar's gourmet gastropub fare, beer and wine. If you were at the last Meetup, the location is not to be missed, the Meetup will be held at reBar's
reRun Gastropub Theater. Featuring 60 reclaimed car seats, a full bar and gourmet snack counter, and a twelve foot screen.
More about the presentation NOOKstudy, the feature rich, free software application is the ultimate study tool, enabling students to manage all their digital content - eTextbooks, class materials, and notes on PC/Mac. NOOKstudy is a revolutionary, easy-to-use study tool that offers instant downloads of a large, versatile selection of eTextbooks and academic and trade titles. Among the innovative features developed with extensive feedback from college students, professors and administrators, NOOKstudy lets students view multiple books and sources at once and offers access to complementary content (e.g. toolsets, reference materials, etc.), as well as the unprecedented ability to highlight and take notes that are searchable and customizable. This comprehensive software solution also provides students access to all of their materials - eTextbooks, lecture notes, syllabi, slides, images, trade books and other course-related documents - all in one place, so their digital library goes wherever they go. For software download and free eTextbook to sample:

    Talk was good, but not enough technical details. Would love to see the source and how _exactly_ Javascript was used in creation of a reader.

    The speaker could have been a little more technical in terms of explaining the technology behind the app. Things like some of the interesting javascript features they used or how they solved some really challenging issues. Maybe some info on hacking webkit may have been useful too.

    I was fairly surprised and happy to see BN coming up with such a useful tool (NOOKStudy)...I already downloaded it and it is really great. Can I ask for the ability to attach voice notes? Speech recognition would be another great feature...for the future of course.
