Overview

Note that this all day workshop is offered on the pre-event workshop day on April 20th and therefore is only available to those who have ‘The Works’ or the ‘ Workshop’ ticket.

With advances brought to us by HTML5, modern browsers and free libraries like CreateJS, we can create games and rich interactive experiences more easily than before. In this workshop, we will show how you can use HTML5 to build games and interactive experiences today (with plenty of demos to pull apart). Then we will show how you can take those HTML5 games and migrate them to Windows 8 to take advantage of monetization opportunities with over 60 million potential users.

You do not have to have deep experience with either HTML5 or Windows 8 but a fundamental knowledge of HTML, CSS and JavaScript will be helpful. You will though need Windows 8 and the Visual Studio Express for Windows 8 to take advantage of the hands-on time.

Oh yes, we will be talking about a Yeti too.
