A chat about River Trail

If you are interested in parallel programming using JavaScript, check out a very cool project called “River Trail” from Intel and Mozilla.  River Trail is aimed at exposing the power of multicore programming to JavaScript developers.

This effort is part of a larger initiative at Intel to contribute innovation to the web platform.  It is great to see Intel working in this space.  I had the chance to interview the team a few weeks ago to ask them a few questions – I hope you guys like it!

Expect additional videos in the future addressing various topics – from JavaScript to more designer orientated content.  If you’d like to be notified when new videos are posted, follow @adobeweb.
