Building HTML5 games for Microsoft platforms
|This high level overview will introduce you to the Microsoft’s HTML5 template for Windows 8, and how you can leverage several HTML5 gaming frameworks to write games for Microsoft platforms. No prior HTML5 experience is necessary.|
Speaker: Dave Voyles (Microsoft)
Dave has recently joined Microsoft from Comcast, where he was an Senior Engineer on their Product Development team. He was the only developer on their Xbox One project, worked on the 360 as well, and built cross platform mobile applications using HTML5.
Opportunity for local businesses and recruiters: Sponsor a user group meeting
In return for sponsoring the pizza and soda, we invite you to spend a few minutes during our break introducing us to your company. The demand for developers is increasing, and what better place to find good people or spread the word about your company than at a technical user group meeting? Please contact us at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
