Introduction

Thursday, March 5th, 2009

Hey everyone,

Just wanted to take a moment to introduce myself. My name is Nick Small and I’m the newest member of the 280 North team. I started using Objective-J and Cappuccino the day they launched, and recently, Ross, Tom, and Francisco have hired me to help maintain and update 280 Slides. I’m working on some new features and updates, and I’ll also be helping respond to feedback and email. Finally, I’ll be posting here whenever there are updates to 280 Slides.

I look forward to helping improve 280 Slides to make it greater than it already is and working with the great team at 280 North. Also, please feel free to let me know if you have any issues with anything!

Announcing Atlas

Saturday, February 28th, 2009

This week we announced our next product, called Atlas, at the Future of Web Apps conference in Miami.

Atlas is a visual development tool for creating web applications using the Cappuccino framework. The best way to explain Atlas is to show it:

Think Vitamin has an article discussing Atlas in more detail.

We’re really excited about the ways Atlas could change the process of developing web applications. Atlas will allow developers to worry less about boilerplate user interface and glue code, just as the Cappuccino framework gives developers many common features expected by users, letting them focus on the ones specific to their applications.

Furthermore, Atlas allows non-programmers, such as many graphic designers, to join in on the process of actually building an application, rather than just providing mockups that must then be replicated in code by a developer.

Atlas will be available this summer. Sign up for updates on 280atlas.com and we’ll let you know of the progress on Atlas.
