2012 Holiday Greetings!

To all our clients, friends, and family: we wish you all a Happy Holiday and a Fantastic New Year!

This past year has been full of great projects, events, and new friendships. We’ve all been so busy here at Quick Left, the holiday card almost went forgotten! After a few hours of Node.js hacking and some terrible programmer-designed assets, I managed to whip up something silly enough for everyone to enjoy.

For those who are curious: it’s just a simple Express app using Socket.io to relay multiplayer behaviour, all hosted up on Nodejitsu. Each user can use the arrow keys to catch little snowglobes of the Quick Left team for points, as well as see other users wasting their time on a Friday afternoon. [ Points can be redeemed for beer at our next hackfest. ]

For the nerds out there: it might be worthwhile to turn up your speakers and try the Konami code (up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A).
