Ok guys - judging from the comments and the mailing list responses, as is often the case, it seems best to start at the beginning! :) To this end I've decided to give a Beginners Guide to creating HTML5 apps utilising HTML5 on the client side and Nodejs for the server.
For those of you wanting something a little "meat-ier", I'm more than happy to do a follow-up talk or two later in the year, in fact depending on demand and commitments, I may even make it into a whole series.
Anyway, hope to see you on the 20th :)
Dear Fellow HTML5-er’s
First up, let’s start with an apology. 2013 has so far been a ridiculously busy one for the Boss Level peeps and we just haven’t had the bandwidth to arrange the kind of talks to do our members justice; for that I apologise. However the good news is we’re looking to rectify that as of now :) Our good friends at Skills Matter have kindly allowed the third Wednesday of each month to be L-HTML5-UG night and I thought I’d kick off the season by giving a talk myself. However the only problem is I can’t decide on what to talk about so I thought I’d throw the question open to the group as a whole.
For those of you who don’t know what we do, we’re a digital startup using the latest web technologies to create massively multi-player games playable on desktops, mobiles, tablets and TVs. We use a HTML5 front-end stack with NodeJS on the backend (+ Redis, Mongo, Socket.IO etc, the usual stuff). So I’m happy to talk about:
• A beginner’s guide to HTML5 / NodeJS / Making HTML5 games / Modern day client/server architecture
• A more advanced guide to HTML5 / NodeJS / Making HTML5 games / Modern day client/server architecture
• Client / Server side best practice for stuff like this
• / Graphics and other shiny “bells and whistles” stuff
• Deploying on Amazon Web Services
• Development tools, practices, experiences
These would be technical with code samples unless anyone wants me to talk about, for example, freemium business models or social gameplay.
If anyone has requests (or different ideas) please just post them in the comments below and once we have some sort of consensus I’ll update the title.
All the best and hopefully see you on the 20th :)
