|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's not easy. The talk will explain the highlights of our adventure, focusing on pitfalls to avoid and best practices that we recommend following. While most game attempts have used HTML5 Canvas as the sole tool, we have taken a hybrid approach of using both the HTML/CSS and HTML5 Canvas, which has direct application in fields other than gaming as well. You will walk away better equipped to decide if HTML5 will work for your app project or not, what architecture options you have, and what tools you should use.|
