Overview: Learn how to build a cross-platform game for both mobile and desktop platforms using HTML5. Yes, it is possible to make a commercially viable game using HTML5 on mobile, but it is not easy. Greg will explain the highlights of BDA's adventure, focusing on pitfalls to avoid and recommended best practices. While most game attempts have used HTML5 Canvas as the sole tool, BDA has taken a hybrid approach of using both the HTML/CSS and HTML5 Canvas, which has direct applications in fields other than gaming. Attendees will walk away better equipped to decide if HTML5 will work for their app project or not, and what architecture options are available.
