JSLA announcement for July 25th, 20013

This month's JSLA will be at HUGE (Mid-City/Miracle Mile), Thursday July 25th @ 7pm. There will be presentations on gelocation based music discovery and managing binary data in the browser!

Please make sure to RSVP, space is limited:

Discovering Music Through Geo Location

Presented by: Chris Mendez

In 2012, the USC Radio online team set out to create a new type of music discovery app centered around geo location. After months of imagining, planning, developing and iterating, the team finally released Geotunes, an HTML5-based app that provides users with a new way to learn about the relationships between songs and their geographical surroundings. The presentation will take a birds-eye view of the product lifecycle and share what it took to become one of the first 100 apps on the Spotify app ecosystem.

Beyond JSON: On HTML5 data-types and handling bytes in the DOM well

In this talk, Sam L'ecuyer will discuss the issues of handling binary data in the browser via JavaScript, the new ways of dealing with files, and the history that led up to it. His presentation will not only cover the APIs that allow more native-like applications, but also a demo of a font engine in pure javascript.

That's all for now, see you all on the 25th.
