Building Windows 8 Metro style casual games using HTML 5

54 minutes, 16 seconds


Right click “Save as…”

The intent of this session is to help HTML5/JavaScript developers with writing their first Metro Style App in a fun, immersive way. We will cover the basics of HTML5 Canvas gaming and how we can easily bring it to Windows 8. We will then add additional game functionality as we introduce the following topics:            

HTML5 Audio, CSS3 Styling and Web Fonts, Implementing a Game Loop with JavaScript, Third Party Frameworks, Touch, Camera Access, Accelerometer, WinJS Controls         

The session ends with HTML5/JavaScript developers having a baseline knowledge to build their own Windows 8 apps and sell them in the new Windows Store.
