Pecha Kucha Night — Bordeaux

English readers: jump straight to the end, and excuse my french!

Jeudi prochain (le 6 mai) je vais participer à la 4ème Pecha Kucha de Bordeaux, parmi une quinzaine d'autres intervenants. Pour ceux qui ne connaissent pas le concept, c'est assez simple : une présentation (à la Powerpoint) avec 20 images et 20 secondes pour chacune. Un peu plus de 6 minutes pour présenter ses travaux et ses sources d'inspiration ; ça va vite, ça passe du coq à l'âne ("comme dans une partouze à la ferme", comme dirait Fuzati) et y'a des gens intéressants !

Je ne peux pas dire grand chose sur ma propre présentation parce que le suspense c'est sympa, et puis que je suis encore en train de préparer...

Bref, venez me jeter des pierres à la gueule ! En plus, parce que vous êtes des gens bien, j'ai invité mon poto Alain Juppé à venir aussi poser son slam ; coup-de-pouce style. Toutes les infos sont sur le site officiel et sur Facebook, fastoche.

Fais gaffe, la suite du billet est en Anglais, retour à la normale quoi !

On thursday (May 6) I'll take part in Bordeaux's fourth Pecha Kucha (France)! If you don't know what a Pecha Kucha is yet, the PK guys have set up a page for you.

Now I can't tell you much about what I'll talk about and what I'll show because I need to keep up the suspense... And even though my slides are set and sent I'm still practicing and deciding what I'm really going to make out of these 20×20 seconds!

Fun fact? One of the other presenters is Bordeaux's current mayor!

Weecast Player

During the last couple of months I've been working on a free AIR app for a French community-based site called Weecast. Its purpose is to allow users to submit and/or buy screencasts about your favorite apps and languages (mostly Adobe's and Microsoft's, but also 3D ones', OS's and more).

Introducing the Weecast Player!

The app allows you to browse your videos, watch them (4 view modes), search for more, drop comments and stars... I think that's called an RIA, right? There's also an offline mode, so you can access all your stuff anytime.

All of this is made in Flex+AIR. The visual identity was made by Weecast ; thanks for the PNGs, folks!

By the way, some parts of it are actually OpenSource, including:

If you don't know Weecast yet I highly recommend you go visit their site, grab an account and the player, enjoy free videos, and then buy some! Now if you don't understand French... Well, learn it!
