Paged.js workshops pretty popular!

Paged.js is the open source pagination engine we are developing to support CSS paged media specifications. The development has progressed pretty fast, since starting in February this year. So far, we know of one commercial product and several really interesting open source projects that have integrated it. Paged.js has also been used to make its first print book (the Editoria manual made in a Book Sprint last month). We don’t consider it near a 1.0 yet, so this is pretty impressive!

We are now moving into planning workshops to train people in how to use paged.js to make books (and other things) in the browser, and to extend paged.js with JavaScript to do new cool things.

We had one workshop in San Francisco last month. It was more of a paged.js core team meet really as it was a day after the Editoria community meeting and we didn’t much advertise it.

At the end of this month, there is a workshop (2 days) in Paris and one in Brussels (1 day). We have 46 people enlisted. It is close to our max. There might be a few seats left (it is a free workshop), so if you want to go, sign up here –

Demand seems pretty high as we have had several people that can’t make either date asking us to keep their names for the next workshop. We also have folks coming from the Netherlands and the US to attend. Pretty cool!

But stay tuned… we will have more workshops including NYC sometime in March and a few surprise other countries on the list… I’ll keep you posted!

Paged.js meet

We had a cool full day Paged.js meeting yesterday. It was at the Aspiration office and we discussed all things Paged.js. The event carried on until the evening at a local bar (Casanova on Valencia) for drinks…as well as the rendering of a book… Julien can be seen in the pics rendering a book with Paged.js that Barbara from Book Sprints had facilitated that day at a one day conference in Hawaii… Book in one day anyone? !!  !!!
