HTML5/Hybrid and Cross platform technology games and apps are a huge upcoming technology area, especially for teams that need performance beyond text based type of apps. We have a place, time, food and the speaker topic will be on HTML5/Hybrid native and cross platform game engines or technologies that are slated to work both on web and mobile. This particular meetup is shared with GamesJS Meetup since both have the same interest in Cross platform tools.

Jack Lawson will give a lightning talk on crafty.js:

Crafty.js is a javascript game engine that provides a flexible, easily extensible framework for game development. We'll walk through a couple examples and look at some good resources for trying it out.

Ben Savage will give a lightning talk on Spaceport:

Spaceport is a javascript/hybrid game engine that provides cross platform support from the web to iOS (both iPhone and iPad),Symbian and Android. It's specialty is performance, performance performance with an easy flash like API. Ben will talk briefly about some of the technical challenges they faced getting over that performance hump that has stumped so many in the HTML5/hybrid native and Javascript game engine space and show some game demos.

Lilli Thompson will give a lightning talk on PlayN:

Aren't you tired of rewriting the same game code for multiple platforms? PlayN is an open source game library that allows developers to write and debug in Java via the Google Web Toolkit and simultaneously create WebGL / HTML5 canvas, Android, and Flash builds. Learn to use the framework to create new games or to port existing game code and libraries.

Lightning talks and announcements are welcome in addition to formal speakers at these meetups, contact us if you have a longer topic or want to make sure to talk email us or post a comment.
