  • Debugging and Optimizing WebGL Applications

    by Ken Russell and Ben Vanik

    WebGL support in browsers opens the door to immersive 3D content, especially games, which is delivered with no end user installation, runs on multiple platforms and requires no porting effort.

    Debugging and tuning WebGL applications for highest performance can be challenging, in particular due to the low-level nature of the WebGL and OpenGL APIs. This session will introduce the WebGL Inspector and explore several complex real-world applications to show how they achieved their results and how the tool can be used to learn more about an application through a way most never see.

    Techniques that will be covered include batching of geometry, using texture atlases, pipelining data, reducing the amount of data transferred to the GPU, offloading computation to the GPU, and using web workers to parallelize applications. Workarounds and gotchas will be described for the differences between WebGL and other common implementations (such as OpenGL ES on iOS) and limitations imposed for security reasons.

  • SONAR - WebGL, JavaScript, and Gaming

    by Jason Meisel and Sean Middleditch

    SONAR is one of the first complete HTML5 games implemented with WebGL, targeting the Chrome platform via the Chrome Web Store. The first part of this talk covers the technical details of our development environment, including our engine architecture and asset pipeline, as well as the problems we ran into with the HTML5/WebGL platform and the workarounds we deployed. The second part is a classical post-mortem.

  • Using Google Closure for Lean and Mean JavaScript Projects

    by Richard Anaya

    Creating high quality optimized code in javascript has many challenges. Why not have a powerful tool by your side? This session will teach you about Google Closure: a powerful set of tools from Google to help make large javascript projects ( like game engines! ) easy to manage and optimize. We'll be talking about code optimization, localization, templates, and documentation.

  • An Initiative and Framework for 3D Gaming with HTML5

    by Alan Kligman

    Paladin is an initiative by the Mozilla community at the intersection of 3D gaming, JavaScript framework and library development, and the browser. We're tied into the bits of the web that are up-and-coming, and intend to weaponize them for gaming. And where the web is missing critical gaming support, we aim to fill those gaps.

    Three pieces are already spinning up: a framework written in JavaScript to support 3D gaming in HTML5, a first game to help drive development of that framework, and a web joystick API for Firefox. The framework currently offers 3D modelling via CubicVR, physics by ammo.js (a cross-compilation of Bullet), loading via require.js, and sound. More subsystems are likely to be up and running by the time of this talk, where I'll review our goals, progress, and opportunities to get involved.

  • Pardon the noise & excuse the dust

    by Rachel Blum

    There are lots of cool things in HTML5. Even better, there are lots of cool things being _added_ to HTML5 and Chrome all the time, quite a few with a focus on games. This talk is going to showcase some very recent and still-in-progress features, including a long look at the Web Audio API.
