Hi James,

I'm a back end java developer but I've always been interested in doing a little fun front-end stuff, particularly when it comes to gaming. Aside from your book () can you recommend a site that gives a quick description of the capabilities of HTML 5, something that could in a page convince me that this is a skill that I need to pick up to have some real fun?

Regards,

Manny

Manny,

Because you are a Java developer, you might want to look at a game library called PlayN. It allows you to write Java game code and compile to Desktop Java, HTML5, and Android. The Flash target is in a transitional state and it seems that iOS might be in the roadmap.

I would advise checking out the slide deck and general tutorial site HTML5Rocks. I've contributed one of the articles on SVG there.
 
No. No. No. No. Changed my mind. Wanna come down. To see this tiny ad:
