  • (103) Interactive Storytelling with Zeega

    by James Clement Burns, Kara Oehler, Jesse Shapins and Zeega

    Zeega is an open-source HTML5 platform that came out of the idea that people should be able to make interactive stories on the internet without having to program. We don’t believe technical knowledge or budgets should be a constraint for exploring the creative possibilities of the web. Zeega’s team of journalists, documentary artists and creative technologists will share Zeega's latest tools and work with participants to create interactive experiences with original and web-based audio, photos, videos and text. For hackers, there will be a breakout session to explore the Zeega application ecosystem, from Backbone Boilerplate-based frontend apps to the core API.

    At 10:00am to 1:00pm, Saturday 10th November
