River Trail

A chat about River Trail

A few weeks ago, I got the chance to interview the team behind the River Trail project, developed at Intel in partnership with Mozilla. This is a great effort, trying to bring multicore programming in an elegant and concise way to JavaScript developers. It is great to see Intel contribute innovation to the web platform, especially on such a topic as parallel programming.

If you are curious about River Trail, here is the video interview below. I hope you guys will like it. Expect some more videos in the future about various topics, from JavaScript to more designer oriented episodes.  If you’d like to be notified when new videos are posted, follow @adobeweb or myself @thibault_imbert.
