Google I/O 2009 Native Code for Compute Intensive Web Apps

Google I/O 2009 – Native Client: Using Native Code to Build Compute Intensive Web Applications Brad Chen Some applications require high-performance client-side computation. Native Client is a technology for running native code in web applications, with the goal of maintaining the browser neutrality, OS portability, and safety that people expect from web apps. This talk will give a brief overview of the architecture of Native Client. We’ll then look at some specific example applications as well as strategies for how to use native code to handle compute intensive tasks within web applications using SRPC, Shared Memory and NPAPI.

Iran TV: 1000 killed or injured in Tahrir Square, by Israelie Jews Commandos A crowd of thousands rushed to speakers and projection television screens to listen to their president address the unrest that has swept over the nation in the past eight days. They weren’t happy with what they heard and told an Al Jazeera web producer they would remain in the square until Mubarak leaves. Protestors were scattered and some were trampled underfoot. Battle for Egypt Pro Iran Islamist vs Green Freedom Seekers of Egypt Thousands of supporters and opponents of President Hosni Mubarak battled in Cairo’s main square, raining stones, bottles and firebombs on each other in scenes of uncontrolled violence as soldiers stood by without intervening. Government backers galloped in on horses and camels, only to be dragged to the ground and beaten bloody. All the unrest has also led to heightened tensions along the Egypt-Gaza border. Both Israel and Hamas, which controls Gaza, have been watching the situation closely, the border has been closed since Friday. More than a million protesters flooded into central Cairo, turning Tahrir Square in the Egyptian capital, into a sea of humanity as massive protests against President Hosni Mubarak swept across Middle East’s most populous nation. Packed shoulder to shoulder in and around the famed Tahrir Square, the mass of people on Tuesday held aloft posters denouncing the president, and chanted slogans “Go Mubarak Go” and “Leave! Leave! Leave!” Similar

  1. this ones is for pros: interesting for high perfomance computing, which uses threads, compression multimedia and vector operations

  2. Yes, i wrote my comment (#1), halfway through the video, i guess i couldn’t wait for the end šŸ™‚

    Again, this is amazing (tech and the talk), eagerly waiting for more news on this

  3. Btw, about presentation… Brad is great. Two others are probably technical guys and are completely out of presentation procedure.

  4. This presentation is one of the most fluid and clear I have seen from Google (how can you top 5 starts? 6 stars). Give this guy the (another) job of being in charge of all video and presentations and a pay raise of course.

    Regarding NaCl, these are some smart guys doing this tech, but I can’t help being a little skeptic, security wise. I mean alayising code? have you heard of the Halting problem (might not be related)

    Anyway, thanks to google, these are very interesting times to live in.

  5. Justice and Freedom is What they want,
    Enough is Enough they say,
    Through the darkness their leader reigns,
    People decide and say,
    get down your thrown,
    this is the real world,
    Your not worthy anymore!
    We want peace now,
    now your out.
