HTML5 JavaScript On Crack

Title:  HTML5 JavaScript On Crack


Date/Time:  Wednesday, October 17th at 6:30 PM


Let's take a deep dive into the ugly nitty-gritty details of some of the most complicated and advanced JavaScript APIs that HTML5 has to offer, including, but not limited to:

* <canvas>
* History API
* localStorage/sessionStorage
* appCache
* Web Sockets
* Local Files + XHR2
* Web Workers
* Native Drag & Drop
* getUserMedia / <video>

We'll show how all these are brought together to make a game, called "We Puzzle It!".


Kyle Simpson is a JavaScript Systems Architect from Austin, TX. He focuses on JavaScript, HTML5, web performance optimization, and "middle-end" application architecture. If something can't be done in JavaScript or web stack technology, he's probably bored by it. Kyle runs several open-source projects, writes books, and speaks at meetups and tech conferences. He also helps drive the local startup/entrepreneurial community through events, co-working activities, etc.
