Session description

With Angry Birds, Cut the Rope and other block­buster games now working in modern web browsers, it’s fair to say native, browser based gaming has arrived for real. But how do they do it? In this session, Mozilla Technical Evangelist Rob Hawkes looks at the features now in your browsers to help develop games (and other interactive web based experiences) including the Canvas and WebGL, HTML5 Audio API, Mouselock and the Joy­stick API.
