Welcome to Signals, a new blog by Metamolecular about the intersection between scientific software and Web technologies.
The Web browser, whether running on a desktop or a tablet/mobile device, offers a scientific software platform with unmatched potential. But realizing this potential means playing to the browser's strengths and respecting its weaknesses.
This blog will discuss some of the solutions to this problem, and the many problems still without a good solution. Although our scope will range from detailed technical discussion and tutorials (with source code) to broader commentary to news about products from our own company and others, each post will always relate in one way or another to the use of the browser as a scientific software platform.
I'm excited about what lies ahead. I hope you'll join us.
