Plexipixel developer Lisa Smith and designer Stephanie Newcomb talk with ISV Architect Evangelist Bruce Kyle about their work with Okapi, a Javascript framework. Okapi is a Javascript framework that allows developers to create animation in HTML 5.

The site for MIX was created in Wordpress on Windows Server 2008 R2 and SQL Server 2008 R2.

The team describes how designers and Web developers work closely together to create the product for visitmix.

They also describe how to use TypeKit to provide fonts that are not web-safe. TypeKit allowed them to create cool sites that are optimized for search engines (SEO) without using images.

For more information about Okapi, see Okapi, Endless Mural with HTML5 and IE9 on Channel 9.

      Thank you for such a fantastic blog. Where else could anyone get that kind of info written in such a perfect way? I have a presentation that I am presently working on, and I have been on the look out for such information.

      My sister works overseas. She said that it's quite difficult to find foods that she usually eats in our country. She said there's instant noodle, too but the taste is very different. I think it has been adjusted for the people's taste in that country. Weight loss

      Wordpress has evolved into an incredible free software that anyone can use. Developing a website using Wordpress is definitely a great way to go. Thanks. <a href="">lose weight</a>

      I can remember when I made my first website in HTML. It was a lot of work. Wordpress is so much easier to use now.
