Talks

MicrophoneIt shouldnt be a party straight away, right? I mean we’ll not stop you from beeing happy before 21:00, but we’ll encourage you to attend some of the lectures as well, learn something new and meet some people, so you’ll feel right at home at the party (well, maybe not so close to home as you won’t have to clean up afterwards :) )

There will be four talks, with adequate breaks between them.

We can’t confirm the topics just yet, so stay tuned and follow the feed.

Extensions for Firefox and what najdi.si has to do with it

Given the statistics of users of our search engine Najdi.si, we at the company Interseek have decidedto publish a tool bar for the Firefox browser. Firefox enables us to deliver many improvements for our users and now the release of Firefox 3 even widens this ability. With these extensions we encourage our users to use Firefox. Gorazd Golob will be presenting how exactly the biggest search engine in Slovenia makes Firefox extensions.

Easy deployment of site-extensions with a browser plugin

Browser extensions offer a way to augment websites with no integration points. We will use Zemanta as a case-study to explore challenges developers face and approaches we can use to make building, maintaining and distributing such applications as cheaply and reliably as possible. Marko Samastur, Zemanta’s expert on javascript will explain the black magic behind their Firefox extension.

Improving the web

Mozilla is one of the first proponents of the open web and with its products led the community to a more open and faster process of applying new technologies to the web. While turning the focus to the end user, Firefox in its third edition brings many useful thing to the developer world. Marko Mrdjenovi?, Slovenian representative of the WaSP ILG and the lead of local web-related weekly talks Spletne urice, presents how Firefox 3 is improving the web.
