One of the most exciting aspects of HTML5 is the addition of many helpful and powerful JavaScript API's. Some are attached to presentational elements (<canvas>, <video>, etc), and others are deeply rooted in JavaScript developer land (localStorage, Web Workers, etc). This webcast will explore various advanced JavaScript API's in the context of how to weave them all together into a multi-player web-based game. Topics include: <canvas>, History API, localStorage/sessionStorage, appCache, Web Sockets, Local Files, Web Workers.
