A Google-sponsored conference taking place in San Francisco in November will focus on technologies for writing HTML5 browser-based games.
New Game is the first North American conference for HTML5 game developers and it is an indication that we really are moving into an era where the browser is a key platform. It is sponsored by Google who is probably hoping that there will be a lot of attention to the unique opportunity that native code in Chrome brings to browser based games.
As the blurb puts it:
"Join us at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts for two days with the world’s foremost HTML5 game developers and learn how to bring your gaming vision to the web now."
As well as Google the schedule includes sessions from Mozilla, Spil, Opera, Bocoup, GameSalad, Moblyng, and others. You can also share high scores at the New Game party, open to all registered attendees.
The event will take place November 1-2, 2011 at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco, CA. and registration is open now and there is an early bird discount.
