For a campaign in March 2015 trivago bought some banner space at web.de. The campaign will only be live for one day and here is the flash banner that will be shown. http://www.soentjens.nl/experiments/trivago/projects/web_de/index.html.
I have created the banner in Flash CS6 with as3.
It is not one banner but there are actually two banners
1. format 180×850, max. size 40 kb
2. format 321×250, max. size 50 kb
There are 46 links inside the two banners.
We expect that on the day that we start the campaign. There will be around 8 million visitors on web.de.

While setting up the test server at trivago, my new playground ;). I found out that there was a bug inside the HTML5 moon dealform creatives. The dates inside those creatives are updating, depending of the current date of the user. While debugging I also took a closer look into bootstrap here is the result. I have to investigate this http://momentjs.com/ it seems legit for the job.

I was checking my twitter when grapefrukt tweeted that he is doing live game development. I really enjoy watching him coding/designing and chatting about what he is doing. Here is the twitch page : http://www.twitch.tv/grpfrkt/. I am not sure if he is live now
The tools he is using are : Haxe, as a code editor he is using flashdevelop and I see him using Adobe illustrator. I think these twitch live webcam/ coding streams are very inspiring and entertaining.

One more night before we are going to start the internal hackaton at trivago. The topic of my hackaton group will be “spider detection”. We will have a lot of data in log files. And my part of the project will be visualizing this data. I will dive into AngularJS and create some controllers, directives etc. for that. I am excited and looking forward to work together with the back-end developers.
the front-end prototype was working. but the pushed (json) data was not. So in the end we didn’t had a working prototype to show during the end presentation. This was a bit disappointed for me.
