Introduction

Currently, the Web Monday events in Stockholm is hosted in the offices of NetHouse AB at Drottninggatan 61.

The office is at the 3rd floor, so you'll have to call the door-bell in the street entrance, to get let in. We'll try to have someone inside the door to let people in, but if nobody's there, just press the NetHouse button.

The easiest way to get to NetHouse if you arrive by train, is to walk. It's a very simple, two-street, ten minute walk from the Central Station in Stockholm. If you arrive by Metro/Underground, your stop is called “Hötorget” and the walk down to Drottninggatan will take roughly two minutes and put you right on the spot.

We will have free WiFi, Pizza and Beer sponsored by NetHouse, so don't miss out!

Stuff

This was the smallest Web Monday event yet, mostly due to easter holidays and university crunch deadlines. All in all six hardy souls delved deep into the technical specifics of implementing a consumer centric mobile web application, and the basics in creating Dojo 1.1 widgets.

The slides for the Dojo widgets tutorial can be found here;

Dojo 1.1 Custom Widgets - Extended Version

But we began with some general discussions on functional programming in JavaScript and the current Dojo implementation, then fanning out into the 256b Demo scene, as two people had done such things (albeit one of them missed nearly by creating a 270 bytes Asteroids clone. Not half bad though:) .

After the two presentations had run their courses we gratitiously rickrolled the audience, followed by a general education in Techno Viking basics and some good-natured bashing of the Danish language. And of course both lol- and longcatting as could be expected.
