With support across all browsers and all desktop and mobile platforms, WebGL now truly brings 3D to the web.

Some developers go down to the metal and use WebGL directly; however, most use WebGL through higher-level JavaScript libraries for graphics engines, game engines, etc.

In this talk, we introduce Cesium, an open-source WebGL engine for 3D globes and 2D maps. With live demos and short code examples, we showcase its major features and parallels with a typical game engine.
