Note: This all day workshop will run from 10-5pm on Sunday February 22, and is available to WORKS and WORKSHOP ticket holders. 

The Flappy Bird internet phenomenon was rumored to be making $50,000 a day in ads. The game itself only took a few days to create, and this workshop goes a step further by re-creating it in a matter of hours.

This full day “code along” workshop follows a sequence of exercises designed to teach the HTML5 Canvas, while covering the concepts and techniques required to create a simple game. We use plain Javascript without external frameworks or libraries. Learn in one day what would take you a week or more on your own.

The topics include

  1. Canvas Basics and setup
  2. Canvas Drawing API
  3. Bitmaps and bitmap manipulation
  4. Animation
  5. Canvas Transforms
  6. Mouse / Keyboard / Tap interaction
  7. Simple game setup and mechanics

Attendees must to be familiar with JavaScript and HTML, and bring their own laptop with their favourite JavaScript editor installed.
