Written by Lucy Black

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."

It features two days of technical sessions and case studies from developers and publishers who brought their games to the web platform. Sessions will focus on the technologies that have elevated the browser-based gaming experience, such as WebGL, Canvas, and JavaScript performance techniques.In addition, the conference will feature sessions exploring and analyzing lessons-learned from recent HTML5 game launches.
