The organizers managed to squeeze a total of 10 speeches into the 3 hour event. The conference was split into two parts:
I) Main presentations (between 20 and 40 minutes)
“inucura” came from Sapporo to join the JUI 2008. He explained a total of 7 web services to be accessed via his site. For example, inucura talked about his wallpaper search engine “Kabegami saachi” and Smoothtube, a Youtube video viewer. Both services are available in English – this is always welcome!
Recruit’s very own “iandeth” concluded the main part of the conference with a presentation named “Fuss-free Mashup Development with Recruit Web Service UI Library”. The aim here is to make life for Japanese engineers considerably easier by accessing Recruit’s self-developed UI library.
II) Lightning talks (5 minutes each)
Another quick talk was given by Taiwanese coder gugod (his presentation can be viewed here).
