The Best Geek Night Ever!
We will have the best Geek Night ever, in a truly Foo Café spirit.
There will be three activities- we will start our evening at 16.00 with a presentation by Erik Meijer, Microsoft Research (Erik on Wikipedia). Following that will there be an After Work with free beer/wine (until we are out of stock!) and food from 17.00-21.00. Then! will Code Clubbing start.
You can choose to register for one, two or all three activities - it’s up to you.
Erik Meijer’s talk will be on “The Story of the Teapot in HTML”
Would you believe that the image below of the famous Utah Teapot is rendered using just div elements and CSS without any OpenGL, WebGL, Canvas, or other "real" graphics capabilities?
While the original Live Labs project has long gone to the happy hunting grounds of technology, we salvaged this little pearl as a timeless demonstration of doing a lot with very little.
Erik's talk is sponsored by;
Afterwork - Need we say more?
Yes, the sing and song writer Tim Schmidt will be playing live!
Code Clubbing #000004 takes place directly after the After Work at 21.00 and we will go on thru the night.
Take your headphones off, and get out of your cave.
Club like you've never clubbed before. You, the creators, the wicked ones, you bring the computers, and we bring to you the DJs and sweet music all night long!
You code, design, hack, wreck a sac, to the beats of house and funky dub.
Awesome people, awesome music, awesome place. Simple as that. No strings attached.
That's all it's about. And what it's all about.
Come on, join in. Go crazy, you've got it all within. Now's the night to release it.
Welcome and Enjoy our Geek Night.
