YAPC::Asia 2008 Tokyo - DOM manipulation by Wiimote/Gainer over HTTP

I love YAPC::Asia which is really exciting Perl conference.
At YAPC::Asia 2008 Tokyo of this week, I got first chance to give a talk in the conference.

My talk was titled DOM manipulation by Wiimote/Gainer over HTTP.
Some slides are updated from OSDC.TW 2008's one.
I'll give this talk again for YAPC::NA 2008 in Chicago next month.

The room was almost full and had some standees at last!
Thank you for coming to listen my talk.

The venue of the conference was Tokyo Institute of Technology at Ookayama, Tokyo.
It had many trees in the campus and was really nice venue.
The number of attendees was counted as more than 500 people.
The committee announced that the conference cost about three million yen (about USD 30,000) in total.
I'd love to say thank you for organizers and volunteers.

As an aside, RECRUIT Co., Ltd. was one of the gold sponsors of the conference. It was honor of us. The Media Technology Labs have a plan to back up such open source related conference and projects.

Translatable presentation with the S6 JavaScript library

For my talk at OSDC.TW 2008 in Taiwan, I have added a couple of features to the S6. The S6 is a great presentation tool developed by amachang, based on HTML/Web standards and implemented in pure JavaScript. (demo)

Writing a slide with the lib is entirely easy:
<div class="s6_fadeScale">
    <h3>page title here</h3>
    <p>page body here</p>
class="s6_fadeScale" means the fading/scaling effect on paging.

And the most noteworthy feature of this special version of the S6 is automatic translation feature which is powered by Google AJAX Language API.

Just clicking a text node on the slide, it's translated into Japanese or another language in a moment. This is efficient for I18N, M17N and native language support. (demo)

13 languages, Japanese, Korean, Traditional Chinese, Simplified Chinese, Arabic, Russian, Greek, German, Italian, Dutch, French, Spanish and Portuguese, are supported to be translated into. The number of languages is depend on it of the Google Translate. Reverse translation, ex. translating from Japanese to English, is also supported for granted.

This means, with the lib, your presentation would get more familiar for the people who could not read the language of it.
I'll welcome you giving cool talks in Japan with the lib. We Japanese don't need to be afraid of slides written in English anymore! :-)

Download it now and enjoy!

OSDC.TW 2008 - DOM manipulation by Wiimote/Gainer over HTTP

12th April, I gave a new talk titled "DOM manipulation by Wiimote/Gainer over HTTP" for the OSDC.TW 2008 at Taipei.

I think manipulating DOM is a bother. That is why I have developed the JKL.ParseXML and XML.ObjTree libraries for my use. And I was involved in kinds of real device web service techs in these days. The presentation could be an answer from me about DOM manipulation. ;-)

The same titled talk will be soon made again in both of the YAPC::Asia 2008 Tokyo and the YAPC::NA 2008 at Chicago.

Special thanks:
* Hiroshi Nemoto - Wiimote HTTPd's co-author
* Hitoshi Amano (a.k.a. amachang) - S6 presentation tool's author
* Shuhei Terai (a.k.a. trick7) - Gainer's maestro

Anyway, this was my first time to get to Taiwan. I must say that the Formosa was the great island of good foods and kind full people.

After the conference, I moved to gugod's office in the Jhubei City which is next to Hsinchu. I love 小籠包 (Xiaolongbao) above, however, 潤餅 (Taiwanese crepe) at a street stand was really tasty.

I'd love to back to Taiwan again next year. More photos...
