Have you ever dreamt of LESS or SASS features such as variables or mixins being available in pure CSS? While CSS3 is getting old and you've seen all awesome demos in the universe, W3C is quietly cooking up new specs for CSS3 (or probably CSS4). What new features will it bring? And what's even more important - how it will make our daily development easier?
During the session I will talk about how webGL will make our life easier, basing on my own experiences with non-gpu accelerated rendering.
I will also present not so obvious usages of webGL in browser as well as take some time for the mobile browsers.
I will share my knowledge and experience with you about designing general game engines and 2d isometric rendering engines.
Instead of just talking about the architecture best practices and patterns, I will go one step further and actually implement them in a simple, but very extensible and powerful game engine's backbone.
Then, I will show you how simple it is to build on top of it. As a result we would have a simple, playable game stub (maybe even multiplayer?) and the code will be open sourced.
tQuery.js is a thin library on top of three.js. It has been designed to lower the barrier of entry for webgl projects. jQuery API is well-known by most of us. tQuery provides all the usual things you are used to with jQuery: element selector, chained API and clean plugin ecosystem. During this talk, we will show how to leverage tQuery flexibility to code a simple 3D game in less than 10min.
Covering not only client-side requirements, but oft forgotten server-side issues related to interprocess communication, Web Sockets, SSEs, authentication, scaling, portability, etc. Largely a bunch of tips and tricks for using HTML5 client-side alongside conventional server-side platforms like LAMP and Node.js.
See how RemoteX changed their deployment strategy from deploying manually to automating their entire deployment pipeline. Why we couldn't afford not automating, and how we do it.
How Socket.IO works and how you can leverage it to make your application or site work in real time.
We will have the pleasure to discover some local wines with an oenologist :)
