Hey all!

A bunch of us have been putting together a web-based drawing app. In a nutshell, users connect in real-time to draw or chat on a sort of interactive whiteboard. Plenty of these are made in Flash, but we are determined to build it in HTML5 (and JavaScript); a site that immediately works on mobile (because it's not Flash), tailors to everybody from drawing tablet users to people who want to screw around, chat and play games and with an awesome, modern look that other apps lack. The thing that works so well is these kinds of programs give you a lot of freedom of expression that I think by making more accessible we can popularize, and truly get a future-proof, lasting community going.

Current drawing apps aren't too popular as they're not accessible to the host of many devices people use, chatting's not versatile or user-friendly enough to compete with chat sites, and their designs look god-awful like it's still the 90's. So with what we're after, there's insane potential in this project.

This is the interface. I hope it gives you some sense of what we're aspiring for. Design is in Photoshop and vector graphics. Development's predominantly HTML, CSS, and JS with server-client communication in HTML5's WebSockets, and some points in PHP. If you're good with any of these, message me here, Skype drawplanet or email [email protected] ([email protected]). I'll be more than happy to answer any questions. And if you're critical of anything, nothing's set in stone. It's very much a by the community, for the community type of project.

Other than design, also on the hunt for people good with P2P networking, node.js, SQL, or server management.http://i.imgur.com/k9dP6JN.png

At the moment we're hellbent on completing the first build with full-duplex drawing. A lot of JS goes into developing the tools. PHP's mainly account integration and forum features.
In design there's a separate UI for mobile, and in fact for anybody good with Photoshop or vector graphics there's some cool stuff we're keen to create.

Drop a message, or do Skype or email, if it's a project you want to get behind. :)

There's a few designers on board and 7 devs, though we're looking for a little more expertise in Photoshop layout design, and some JavaScript frameworks, particularly Meteor. While data's handled with WebSockets, we're also looking to do WebRTC and for incompatibility switch to WebSockets. Data management otherwise in SQL, and MongoDB or Redis.

Vector icons looking good, but they can always do with some retouches.

Hit me up a message.
