We will also discuss the IE9 developer contest, Dev Unplugged, which was announced at the Austin JS SXSW Party last month. Dev Unplugged is not a just a contest where you can win thousands of dollars in prizes, but it also a way for developers to really explore what is possible with HTML5 and modern web browsers. As if you needed a reason to be trying out the latest and greatest, Dev Unplugged will reward you for doing so!
Since Austin is the Live Music Capital of the World, the IE9 team has enticed us to do something cool with the HTML5 Music capabilities. Here are some ideas to get you going:
Dev Unplugged has a music category for the best “music experience”. Developers may use their own legally licensed music or the the IE9 Team has provided two tracks for you to experiment with: “Sail” by AWOLNATION and “Boy” by RaRaRiot. Read more about it here:
- When: Tuesday, April 19th, 2011 from 7:30-9:00 PM.
- Where: frog design – 101 West 6th Street – 2nd Floor
- How: Parking is on the street, or you can take any number of buses to get downtown.
- Drinks and pizza will be provided.
Afterwards, the discussion carries on a few blocks away at The Gingerman, where they have over 70 beers on tap.
