1. Democamp Toronto 17
Democamp Toronto 17 is absolutely another great event again! More than 300 people have attended.
Only want to highlight two here:
- AskItOnline is a online survey system created by Kaitlyn MacLachlan totally on her own. It is a pretty beautiful and useful application. Kaitlyn wins the best demo prize.
- Ignite presentation “The State of Wireless in Canada Sucks” from Tom Purves could be the best ignite presentation in the history of Democamp Toronto so far. Well done, Tom!
Joey Devilla had a very detail post on the schedules, please check it out here. I believe he will post some more tonight soon.

2. Adobe Flex 3.0 and Air 1.0
Finally, its On – Flex 3.0 and Adobe AIR 1.0 Are Here!
3. Haxies updated! It works on Leopard!
Haxies – Love it or hate it!
In computing, a Haxie is a term which was coined by developer Unsanity to describe their products. It is a blend of “hack” and “Mac OS X”. Unsanity uses it to refer to “hacks” that are specifically designed for use with its Application Enhancer (APE) software. These are typically small interface and functionality tweaks to the system or existing applications by injecting code into programs as they load.
Until yesterday, all the haxies which come from Unsanity or other companies didn’t work on Leopard, all of them. It is a real pain for somebody who loves these little, cute and useful hack tools, such as me.
After several months hard work, the development team in Unsanity finally bring them back to Leopard today: Enthusiastic Trepidation!
Here are some of them what I use all the time:
WindowShade X. It minimizes your windows on desktop, or shades them.
FontCard. It shows a WYSIWYG font menu for your applications.
FruitMenu. It helps you easily access everything from your menu.
Menu Master. It helps you to create shortcut keys for any menu items of any your applications.
Big day today, by all means!
