Are you interested in making games with javascript? Come learn with Jeff Schomay how to go from blank page to a fully playable game in 2 hours.

• Learn basic game engine mechanics through a live coding demonstration

• Learn about Phaser.js (

• Follow along while building a tutorial game in Phaser from start to finish

This presentation is aimed at developers who understand javascript, but haven't had any experience making games, and want to "get their feet wet." Depending on interest, we may have a follow-up meetup focused more on game design and workshopping your own games.

Bring a laptop if you'd like to follow long, or you can just watch.
