Pasha Sadril, Jonathan Trevor, and others on the Yahoo! Pipes team showed up at Google to discuss Yahoo! Pipes. The presentation was recorded for all as part of the Google Tech Talk series.
The presentation started with Pasha discussing how Pipes came into being, and showing it in action. Then, Jonathan took over to discuss some of the high level architecture choices and decisions.
It was interesting to hear how Pipes is aimed at the top 10% of the market (from developers to remixers), how it is built to enable you to do that one thing you need (I need a sofa near me), and how it mimics the data flow programming that we are used to in AV. I think that the top 1% would maybe enjoy a simple DSL.
Learning about the pains of canvas, and how they got those connectors working is fun too.
