Client-side Graphics with HTML5 Canvases

Video Description

The Web used to be a place for text. Then images came alone. But now, with HTML5, full-blown 2D and 3D graphics are available. In this Breakdown, you'll not only learn about the new HTML5 canvas tag, but draw on that canvas... with some style. By the time you're done, you'll have a working version of Asteroids, all running in a simple web browser.

The experts in the O'Reilly Breakdown live video series not only break down the concepts of difficult and complex subjects, they also demonstrate practical implementation and use. Each episode features an experienced programmer, developer, or software designer working on real-world challenges, ranging from iPad user interface design and multi-tasking on Android phones to caching in cloud-based applications.
