We have two three great (one might say, awesome) technical talks lined up for the evening.
I. HTML5 Multiplayer Game Development
Ingar Shu : Tech Lead @ Carbon Five
Ever wondered what it takes to build a "simple" multiplayer game using modern web technology? This talk covers the basics and you'll be walked through the code for a multiplayer "asteroids" type game, including both the front and back ends. Very few 3rd party libraries are used; this will highlight what can be done leveraging what the browser does without help. Tech: HTML5, Canvas, CoffeeScript, Node.js.
II. New Browsers, Same Vulnerabilities
David Bloom : Frontend @ Cue
Browsers have come a long way since the days of Netscape and IE 6. But even as we replace our web-safe palettes with CSS transforms, web security remains cumbersome and unpredictable. David will talk about some little known security issues that are difficult to mitigate, even in modern browsers. Some of these issues are merely mischievous, but others have serious implications for services like Cue. He'll also discuss the ways that Cue protects users from such vulnerabilities.
David is a frontend developer at Cue, a service that pulls in data from all of your online services to give you an intelligent snapshot of your day. His former gig was in Google's information security department.
Erin Swenson-Healey : Developer @ Carbon Five
