About “WebAssembly”

WebAssembly is an emerging standard which defines a compact, efficient, safe, and portable compiler target for the Web. This talk introduces WebAssembly: what it is and what problems it is designed to solve. Next, an in-depth tour of WebAssembly: how to compile it, what it looks like, how it works, how the engine compiles it into efficient machine code, and how it interfaces with JavaScript. If you care about alternative programming languages, compiling to the Web, performance, or you like using powerful JS libraries and frameworks, come learn
about WebAssembly.

Can I really do this with Javascript?

Meeting: July 17 - Processing.js

This Month: Heads Up! Location Change!

The Div was an awesome place to hold our meetings for a long time. The Div is evolving now, and shifting its focus to better serve the Oklahoma Tech Community. Since they are focusing on inspiring a new generation of developers, their facility this month will be used to host a Scratch Camp, and in the future they will focus more on Div Jr.

We are thankful for the awesome time we spent there! However, now we
need to meet at a differnt location, so for this month we are going to
meet at MetroTech Economic Development Center in Room 114 (view map). For this building on campus you should park in Lot I, and the entrance is either entry 13 or 14.

Here are some maps to help you find us:

Its time to take your visualization capabilities to the next level

Processing.js is the sister project of the popular Processing visual programming language, designed for the web. Processing.js makes your data visualizations, digital art, interactive animations, educational graphs, video games, etc. work using web standards and without any plug-ins. You write code using the Processing language, include it in your web page, and Processing.js does the rest. It’s not magic, but almost.

Yury is going to help us get started with Processing.js. There is a reason Processing is highly popular with lots of creative people. Processing.js brings the best of visual programming to the web, both for Processing and web developers. Processing can help you achieve practical goals, but it can also be a means for self expression. If you’ve been amazed at some of the cool things happening in the browser, and are interested in being a part of the exciting changes javascript is bringing to modern development; don’t miss this meeting!
