Next week I’ll be in Mountain View for DocEng2011 — a symposium on Document Engineering, which is hosted by Google this year.

I’ve just been hired by INRIA to develop a Mozilla-based, multimedia-dedicated, web authoring tool. I’m working in a team that has been very active in the SVG and SMIL working groups and that has developed Amaya a while ago. After three months working here, I came up with two conclusions:
- the full SMIL spec (≠ SVG animations) is completely overkill for web browsers
- the SMIL/Timing module is magic: simple to use and offers a lot of cool features to web pages like timing, media synchronization and user interaction management. I wish this could be part of HTML5!
Here’s a quick overview of SMIL/Timing and how we can use it in web pages. The full story and all the demos are on labs.kompozer.net/timesheets.
Timesheet Scheduler (Demo!)
