    Another round of improvements is coming to our Next channel. This build includes Chromium updated to version 37.0.2062.94 and a couple of bug fixes. Warnings for unresponsive plugins were often mentioned in the comments as a source of annoyance in the previous build, so we changed the timing and now they should appear less frequently. Let us know in the comments if it works better now. More details available in the full changelog.

    The BA standard working group has had adding extensions to the OB assertion specification high on its roadmap this summer. We agreed that before we could add an extension to an assertion or Badge Class, we needed to add machine readable schema definitions for the 1.0 standard. We experimented with JSON-Schema, then JSON-LD. JSON-LD isn’t a schema validator, it’s much more. It builds linked data semantics on the JSON specification. JSON-LD adds several key features to JSON, most of which you can play around with in the JSON-LD node module. Add semantic data to a JSON structure, link the…

    This week I’ve been: Surviving while being home alone. The rest of my family flew down to Devon (it’s quicker/easier than driving) to visit the in-laws. Working on lots of stuff around the house. There are no plants left in my garden, for example. We decided that we want to start from ‘ground zero’ so I went on a bit of a mission. Suffering after launching myself into the week too hard. I’d done half of the things I wanted to do all week by Tuesday morning. By Wednesday I was a bit burnt out. Writing blog posts: Scaffolding Web Literacy Through Learning Pathways [DMLcentral]…
  • sheppy: The Sheppy Report: August 29, 2014

    This week, my WebRTC research continued; I spent a lot of time watching videos of presentations, pausing every few seconds to take notes, and rewinding often to be sure I got things right. It was interesting but very, very time-consuming! I got a lot accomplished this week, although not any actual code on samples like I’d planned to. However, the pages on which the smaller samples will go are starting to come together, between bits of actual content on MDN and my extensive notes and outline. So that’s good. I’m looking forward to this three-day Labor Day holiday here in the States.

Red will indicate the transaction is about 1000ms or over. What’s a transaction? It’s running the rendering pipeline and includes (1) Running request animation frame and other refresh observers, (2) Flushing pending style…

    Last weekend I had a blast in Bhubaneshwar. Over two days, I was there at two different colleges for two Maker parties.Saturday (23rd August 2014), we were at the Center of IT & Management Education (CIME) where we were asked to address a crowd of 100 participants whom we were supposed to teach webmaking. Trust me, very rarely do we get such crowd in events where we get the opportunity to be less of a teacher and more of a learner. We taught them Webmaking, true, but in return we learnt a lot from them.Maker Party at Center of IT & Management Education (CIME)On Sunday, things were…
