You can find more description about the event on the Meetup social network.
There were two lightning demos at the beginning, both on interesting use of audio in web sites & games:
- Alex Hwang, a 13-year old yougster, on http://soundweaver.info/.
- Fred Sauer, A member of the Google Developer Advocate team, on http://allen-sauer.com/com.allen_sauer.gwt.game.hornetblast.HornetBlast/HornetBlast.html.
|Making Waves: The Slide Deck|
|Slide #3: The <audio> tag of HTML 5.|
To provide context for the talk, Max traced the way sounds were introduced by, or into, computers starting from the computer CSIRAC in 1951 (slide 8) to present day GarageBand software on the iPad 2 (slide 19).
