Is this class right for you?

This one-day workshop is ideal for web developers who want to learn how to make HTML5-based browser games; or game developers looking to create for the browser. Attendees should have some experience with programming concepts. Familiarity with JavaScript or ActionScript development would be helpful, but not necessary.


Using the skills you’ll acquire in this course, you’ll be able to create a graphical, 2D browser-based game with physics (think Angry Birds). You’ll apply tools like Canvas, HTML5 Audio, and physics engines such as box2d to create games with environments and obstacles. Finally, you’ll see how to put it all together with a player and keyboard controls. We’ll cover:

  • Browser-based development tools
  • JavaScript & jQuery primer
  • HTML5 features for games:
  • Canvas
  • Animation
  • Audio
  • Physics
  • Final workshop - put your game together
