Light and Shadows

Alvin Ourrad will be giving a brief introduction to pixi.js (a super fast HTML5 2D rendering engine that uses WebGL with canvas fallback).

Then we'll take a look at light and shadows in WebGL... I'll try to include some THREE.js this time.

Prerequisites
A laptop with a browser that supports WebGL (http://get.webgl.org/) and an editor that can handle HTML and JavaScript.

Some knowledge of HTML and programming, preferably JavaScript (or similar).

Register
If you're planning on attending please RSVP and register on the SkillsMatter site (http://skillsmatter.com/event-details/home/light-and-shadow).

    @Alvin - Firefox on Nexus 7 _does_ support WebGL! Good call! Sadly it seems limited :(

      You can always wrap your html5 game with Cocoon js and get better performance with Webgl. I tried it with a couple of projects and the difference is really noticeable.

      Hi, I was using Sublime Text, which is free but bothers you with alerts sometimes.
      If you have any questions, feel free to ask, you can reach me on twitter @alvinsight as well

    Dear All, good to see you all at my first meetup.
    I have a question, if you don't mind. I've been working with another API (shall I call it this way?!) called x3Dom. It is based on the x3D standards. Do you guys knew about it? do you think is better starting with something like three.js?

    Many Thanks,
    GC.

    Oops the website: http://www.x3dom.org/
