Update: Slides and links from the events are now available.
These are part of the Microsoft Web Camps series and feature a half day of sessions followed by hands-on game creation time. Get up to speed with HTML5 and game dev concepts in the sessions, then turn your ideas into reality as we leave the slides behind. Design and develop creations of your own, with plenty of guidance and help for your questions.
Here’s where the HTML5 Game Camps are heading, with links to details and registration:
