Draft NEFFA Sound Form

September 3rd, 2012
sound, contra  [html]
At NEFFA there are many events that need sound reinforcement, and performers [1] get asked to fill out a sheet describing their sound needs. The traditional sheet looks like:
QMSAud.pdf
You print it out, fill in the info, diagram your setup, and mail or fax it back. Which is kind of annoying. As a bit of a challenge and a chance to play with some javascript, I tried to make a version of the form that's all online. The diagram is the trickiest part, but here's my version:
neffa-sound/v1.html
(I've not copied the instructions, but try entering some musicians with instruments and clicking checkboxes. Then little boxes appear below which you can drag to the appropriate parts of the stage.)

Would this be usable? Suggestions?


[1] Thinking of performing? Applications are open now!

Algorithms interviews: theory vs. practice

When I ask people at trendy big tech companies why algorithms quizzes are mandatory, the most common answer I get is something like "we have so much scale, we can't afford to have someone accidentally write an O(n^2) algorithm and bring the site d…
