Tickets to New Game, our HTML5 Game Conference in San Francisco this fall, went on sale last week. We are really excited for an incredible lineup of speakers including the likes of Rich Hilleman from EA, engineers from Mozilla, Spil Games, Opera, Google, Bocoup, GameSalad, Moblyng, and other very exciting folks to be announced soon.
This past weekend, I made a handy utility for converting files to data URLs. This utility is part of a larger tool that we are developing for a client.
Popcorn.js, the HTML5
<video> framework, is getting a facelift. Rick, Al and I spent last weekend working on Popcorn with Anna and Scott from the Centre for Development of Open Technology (CDOT) at Seneca College on the forthcoming release of Popcorn JS.
Philippe is quoted as saying:
“The problem we’re facing right now is there is already a lot of excitement for HTML5, but it’s a little too early to deploy it because we’re running into interoperability issues. The real problem is can we make HTML5 work across browsers and at the moment, that is not the case.”
