HTML5 Game Development - Tuesday October 21st 5:30PM

 

Registration required - click here...

 

​Presented by ​Mark Lassoff - HTML5 is becoming an increasingly comprehensive game development environment.  In this session, you'll be introduced to the concepts of game development using HTML5, Javascript, and popular libraries that are in use today.  You'll be invi​ted to code along as many basic game development concepts are demonstrated.   We'll provide you with the game assets, and you'll write the code, putting together a primitive (but complete) game based on Nintendo's "Duck Hunt."

If you've ever wanted to create games-- or push the limits of HTML5, this session will enable you to do both.
