Hello JavaScript developers, gaming fans and code golfing gurus!

We would like to invite you to a coding workshop on the very basics of developing a game with JavaScript. We will focus on the popular Kontra.js gaming micro-library https://straker.github.io/kontra , showcase what you can do with it and implement a clone of the popular Asteroids game https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asteroids_(video_game) .

This workshop is for you if you are familiar with the syntax and concepts behind JavaScript and want to get an idea of what it means to build a game from the ground up. Additionally, you will get insights into the world of mini JavaScript apps and available libraries.
