January 2009


Once again, I'll be exhibiting SonoPlot's microscale fluid printing systems at an upcoming conference. This time, I'll be at LabAutomation 2009 in Palm Springs, CA. We actually won our exhibit space in the Innovation AveNEW area of the show because we were seen as having interesting new technology. If you're at the show (from January 25 - 27), stop by booth #593A and say hi.

Unfortunately, this means that I might not be the most responsive next week. I'll be warmer than I would be in Wisconsin, though.

I've been doing a lot of work with Core Animation lately during development of my next iPhone application, and I came across an interesting way to optimize OpenGL ES rendering that I thought I'd share. This small improvement yielded a 14-25% increase in the triangles per second I was able to push in Molecules.

Read on for more about this optimization.
