Vimcar at Berlin Tech Meetup

or "sometimes it is OK to do a live demo"

It has been exactly a week since I've presented Vimcar at the first Berlin Tech Meetup of 2015. Here is a belated summary of the event.

"...Trifković, versucht zu beruhigen"

I - Heilmann vs. Flipboard on Canvas

Mobile-first Flipboard has made the move to the web this week and their engineering team revealed more details about their approach.
