WebGL is the new standard for 3D rendering on the web. With WebGL, developers can create games, animations, data visualizations, product displays and more using only Javascript, a web browser and a standard web technology stack. This webcast with Web3D pioneer and 3D expert Tony Parisi will introduce WebGL development concepts, including graphics, animation, interactivity, 2D/3D integration, production tools and deployment. The session will feature several examples and techniques from Tony's just-released O'Reilly Media book, WebGL Up and Running.
