local.ch Vortrag am Tweakfest

Posted by Patrice Neff Mon, 21 May 2007

Am Tweakfest werde ich am Freitag einen kleinen Ajax-Workshop halten. Während dem Workshop zeige ich, wie mit einem kleinen API von local.ch wie in einem Formular die Schweizer Ostschaften autovervollständig werden können. Es geht darum eine kurze Einführung in Ajax mit einem praktischen Beispiel zu zeigen.

Vor meinem Vortrag stellt Marcel Vogt Apollo vor.

Der Workshop findet am Freitag, 25. Mai um 14:30 im Raum Newton 1011 im Technopark Zürich statt, Daniel Vogt beginnt um 13:30.

Melde dich bei mir, falls du gerne kostenlos zum Workshop kommen willst. Generell kostet die Teilnahme.

Webtuesday Zurich

Posted by Patrice Neff Wed, 17 May 2006

I attended the Webtuesday yesterday, hosted by Jürg Stuker at the namics office in Zürich. The talk was mainly done by Urban Müller of search.ch about their clustering implementation. Statistics, performance, server redundancy, etc. were the topics. Bernhard Seefeld talked about his current solution for Endoxon. And Cédric added a few notes about our solution at local.ch. Silvan and Stefan of Tilllate had a few things to say about their layout as well. All in all it was a very interesting evening with lots of stuff learned. I guess all of us learned a few things.

We then moved to El Lokal for a beer and Pizza. We of local.ch had to accept being defeated by tel.search.ch for looking up the number of a Pizza delivery service. But only because we don't have the mobile interface ready, yet. It's already being implemented, though and is one of the lacking features I personally care most about.

It was once again interesting to meet a few people I had only met online so far, especially Denis De Mesmaeker and Alain Petignat.

Next time I'll talk about Ruby on Rails which I already defended at our table yesterday. We planned/are planning to have that event on June 13 but that date collides with the Swiss victory over France at the Football World Cup. Details are currently being negotiated and will be announced on the Webtuesday Zurich Web site.
