While HTML5 gaming is still in its infancy that doesn't mean you have to wait for it to fully mature on the web. Windows 8 is the only OS that makes HTML and JS a first class citizen. That means you can take your existing web skills and build HTML5 games today! Join this webcast talk by Jesse Freeman, author of Building HTML5 Games with ImpactJS, as he goes over the best HTML5 game frameworks to use, moving from the web to Windows 8, supporting mobile devices, testing/debugging your game and how to publish on the Windows 8 store. If you have your own HTML5 games and are looking for a better place to monetize them or you are interested in building HTML5 games for web, mobile and desktop you will not want to miss this webcast.
