Desktop Matters - the links and more

Posted by kirillcool on March 9, 2007 at 11:15 PM PST

The first Desktop Matters is officially over (although there still may be a few people still talking in the conference room as we speak...) First of all, many thanks and congratulations to Ben and Dion for organizing this (and making it take place 10 minutes away from where i live).

In addition, it was great finally seeing all the real people behind the java.net (and jroller) blogs (sometimes you get a weird feeling that perhaps some of them are not real, but maybe it's just me :) Thanks for everybody who came to chat, inquire about Substance and other projects and for listening to my presentation. The slides are available in the following formats:

  • (Recommended) PowerPoint 2007 - the original presentation with the animations and code comments.
  • PDF - the same presentation, but without animations and code comments.

Note that i didn't have enough time for all the slides, so even you listened to me live, there are additional 8-9 slides that go deeper into the implementation of the ghosting effects outside the button borders. And now that it's over, finally some time for a little entertainment.
