HTML5 Games Hands-on
1h 45min workshop. Bring your laptop! |
What were you dreaming to do as a kid? If you went into programming because of games, this session is tailored for you!
Join the fun and discover how to build multi-players mobile games. We show you a template and you’ll code your own game. The example is based on KissingTurtles games (Grails48 hackathon project, see http://kissingturtles.cloudfoundry.com/start-index.html).
We start with “Single Player” mode focusing on HTML5 canvas programming: canvas 2D API, browser animation effect… We then delve into multi-players challenges (event push/vertx ).
by Corinne Krych and Mathieu Bruyen
Corinne Krych. With over XX years of experience in development (when you like it you don’t count), Corinne is addicted to code and can’t go very far from it. Freelance since 1999, she traveled from C++ to Java, J2EE, Spring, Struts, JSP, Web 2.0 and naturally made her path to Groovy. Being an Agile coach and practitioner, she thinks code is craft and collaboration is key to success.
Chatting about the latest tech trends at coffee break: a female geek – what do you expect – she’s always curious to discover (or rediscover) languages and frameworks. She is co-founder of RivieraGUG (Grails and Groovy User Group) and an active member of JS Sophia: because there is no better way to achieve continuous learning than sharing ideas.
Mathieu Bruyen. Java/Groovy programmer for the living: consultant at Amadeus in an agile team building a customization framework for customers to hook in the logic and user interface of e-commerce products. Hooks are uploaded and hot reloaded in the JVM using Groovy. UI is designed using Amadeus’s AriaTemplates open source framework.
When it comes to playing at night, alternate JVM languages and web technologies come from darkness. Love to understand the internals of what I use to then use a framework abstracting the annoying bits. Algorithmics, maths and a bit of DIY welcome too.
