Mozilla Popcorn Learning Lab
- Video is typically hard to edit and change
- Video is often a black, unindexed hole on the web
- Separation allow for easier maintenance, enhancement, accessibility, and discovery
- HTML5 video is just another page element
- The timestamp is the glue
- Tap into the real-time web using Popcorn.js
Demos also speak loudly about Popcorn’s possibilities. Take a look!
Who & What
The motto: By sharing and by doing!
Teams consist of:
- Bold filmmakers wanting to play with code
- Experienced Popcorn.js contributors
- 12:00h — First hacking session. Depending on technical skill, you'll either play with Popcorn Maker or dive into coding a plugin.
- 13:00h — The group shares back their hacks. Participants give feedback, file bugs, offer help, and note ways to improve the experience.
- 13:30h — Lunch & coffee break
- 14:30h — In the second hacking session, you can learn how to create your own Popcorn Maker template, or you can start on a demo, keep coding your plugin, or float & help others.
- 15:30h — Participants code their demo, giving feedback and checking in with more experienced contributors if they get stuck.
- 16:30h — At the end of the day, a screening and party is held. Demo your final code, evaluate the process, and celebrate all the hard work.
- 17:00h — Head to the pub!
