If you’re coming to the ASTD ICE conference in Washington DC from May 4-7, then make it a point to check out Frameweld’s booth (#1544).

It was a routine day at Frameweld as a Manhattan-bound 7 train glided sleekly feet outside our office windows. Millions of times faster than that train, packets were traversing the entire globe, going to and from our servers and our customers.

When I was conceptualizing how FW Toolkit (FWTK) would function, I envisioned a library robust, powerful, agile, but really easy to incorporate into anyone of our projects. Although, the library did exactly as intended, a component was left out due to my own skepticism. FWTK, as a library, comes equipped with an arsenal of tools created by our developers, but the few external libraries we depended on, needed to be loaded separately before they were accessible (Errrr). I wasn’t pleased by this process, but the overall library was a success so I was content.

We rolled out a project last week that we’ve been working on for two years – SyncWords. SyncWords automates captioning when you provide media and a transcript, and does it with great precision and style, and puts users in control.

I woke up this morning to the dreaded alert of a day full of scheduled meetings. Just the thought of four in one day was nothing to anticipate and sent a chill down my spine. The first meeting started later than scheduled, but with free lunch included, who could complain? The meeting was about application integration and our head of RnD, Jose Burgos, Jr. discussed how we could improve communication by integrating our Basecamp and Beanstalk accounts…

I sat down the other day to pen a post for our blog, which has sadly suffered from neglect. I start most of this kind of writing in my email client, Thunderbird, so I went to my Drafts folder to pick up a recent piece I started about caption reformatting (now I know you’ll be checking back regularly in anticipation!). Well, as I went through a few drafts I had started, I found 16 different posts I was writing in varying states of completion. :(

Starting January 1, 2013, our partner, the National Captioning Institute (NCI), will be launching their NCI On Demand platform. The platform will bridge the gap between live captions for broadcasts and captioning for the web. Our very own Recap’d will be the cornerstone of the service, handling capture and delivery of captions up to 24×7×365, and conversion of live captions for offline use on the web and in editing workflows.

We recently doled out a really cool addition to Recapd that allows the intake, and storage of caption feeds continuously, 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. This feature answers a huge demand from our broadcast clients to archive, retrieve and search through all their countless hours of captions in one central location, and at the same time meet compliance with the Twenty-First Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2010.

Working with Subversion has always been something of interest since I arrived at Frameweld. Using it effectively can avoid unnecessary code conflicts, and result in a smooth cutover and update of web applications.

Over the past few months we have been using Akismet on our blogs and forms and if you haven’t noticed – no spam! We are very pleased so far with how it has been working for us.
