Get a Crash Course in Popcorn.js at OVC 2011

Interested in Popcorn.js, the HTML5 framework that integrates web content into video? This year’s Open Video Conference offers the perfect venue to dive in, with the session “Intro to Popcorn.js.”

This session will be led by Rick Waldron, javascript ninja for Bocoup, and a core contributor to Popcorn since version 0.2. You’ll get a brief overview of what Popcorn is, and why you might be interested in using it—whether you’re a filmmaker, developer, or just curious. From there, you’ll jump into a quick tutorial that will take you through the basics of writing and implementing Popcorn.

At the end of the session, participants will be invited to pitch ideas for Popcorn.js plugins they’d like to create or use—whether for mashing web video in new ways or for specific productions. This lays the groundwork for the same-day “Popcorn.js Plugin Sprint” session, an open-ended hackfest where groups will work to build out their ideas and present them to fellow attendees.

These sessions are great opportunity for developers, filmmakers, and others across a variety of fields and technological skill levels to check out what popcorn can do. Check out the demos at to see Popcorn in action.

Register for OVC today to grab a seat at this and all our other great sessions.
