Toward this end, we're hosting a Tech Talk next Wednesday, January 26 at 7PM PST where we will explore how Facebook, Zynga, and SproutCore are currently using these technologies.
Charles Jolley (SproutCore) - SproutCore is an HTML5 app framework for building responsive, desktop-caliber apps in any modern Web browser. Charles will give an overview of how to use SproutCore in your own applications to take advantage of the latest Web technologies.
Cory Ondrejka (Facebook) - Cory will speak about a project that exercises browsers under game-like conditions to measure how many sprites can move around on the screen at once. The server collects the performance data and spits it back in several forms.
If you can't make it to our offices in Palo Alto, California, you can catch a live stream of the talk at http://www.facebook.com/FacebookLive. More information can be found at http://www.facebook.com/HTML5techtalk.
