SPECIAL EVENT: WEBTUESDAY + SWISS OPEN SOURCE AWARDS

We meet at 18:00 at The Hub (map), we get a 360° frontend dev kick, have a drink and go on with the Swiss Open Source Awards ceremony - and another drink perhaps.

Please sign up on Techup!

18:00: Scrolling through Langstrasse with Severin Klaus

360° Langstrasse presents Zurich's most urban street as a guided, stylized StreetView-like tour, lending it almost cinematic qualities. The project has won many, many, many, awards.

We'll look into the technical quirks around building the frontend and talk about graphics and loading performance, browser optimizations and lots of parallax fun. We'll be lead by Severin Klaus (@betabong), Head of Interaction Development at Hinderling Volkart.
