When Benjamin Bérubé was working on a Web project that needed to capture video using a webcam he thought it would be a cakewalk. However, he quickly found out that there was no easy solution to accomplish this.
Instead of complaining on forums and blogs like the average web developer would do, Benjamin did something completely different and innovative. He went out and created Nimbb, a site for recoding and sharing videos from your webcam.
Nimbb is easy, fast* and free**.
Benjamin is based in Montreal, Canada. He has recently moved to San Francisco to spread the word about Nimbb, because as he said it himself…
After just one week of marketing in Montreal, I decided to come to San Francisco – where all the action is – to promote Nimbb.
Well, we told Benjamin
You have arrived at the right city and at the right event!
Benjamin loves SFNewTech peeps so much, that he has pledged to give away one full month of Nimbb subscription free to anyone of you that tweets about the service during the demo and follows @nimbb on twitter.
A developer at heart – with over 15 years of experience in application software development – Benjamin will likely answer any questions you may have about the underlying technology that powers the nimbb webcam video recording and sharing service.
So don’t be shy. Come on over!
*fast = I recorded, saved and shared the above 30 second video using my webcam on nimbb in under 1 minute!
** free = Basic membership is free. For a full list of subscription types and price, see the subscription page.
