The Lab - Events and Activities around KWALL

Like anyone else, we turn off the lights when we leave the office at night.  But we never turn off our brains.  At KWALL, we have a tradition of thought leadership in the industry and the Drupal community.  Which means you’ll find us busy driving innovation at seminars and meet ups throughout the year.  Drop in and say hello.

    “Content precedes design. Design in the absence of content is not design, it’s decoration.”
    – Jeffrey Zeldman

    What is content?

    It’s what you communicate. It’s how you communicate. It’s the tone and style. It’s what you emphasize and what you don’t. It’s how you tell your story.

    WebGL is a way for web developers to directly access the OpenGL apis. WebGL has shown some remarkable adoption over the past few years and I have to think this is due to it being based on the very stable open apis from OpenGL. If you have used OpenGL (or any 3D programming) there is alot to do before anything can be rendered to the screen. I am not talking about art assets either, I am talking about templated boilerplate code that makes this stuff very tedios to start with. Luckily there are lots of Javascript people writing libraries so I don't have to rewrite the same boiler-plate code over and over again.
