Hi James and Welcome!

A couple of questions:
1) Do you have any thoughts on what sort of background in general is good for someone to have to do game coding in HTML5? I am assuming basic programming knowledge of some sort. Anything beyond that?

2) I see the portability benefit of HTML5. What drawbacks/limitations do you see HTML5 having, if any, compared to writing an Android application/game in java code?


[Edit: split from hijacked topic]
I agree. Here's the link:
