I will be speaking on Windows 8 Metro Style App Development with HTML and JavaScript at Reasons to be Creative Festival


I am excited to announce I will be a speaker at the upcoming Reasons to be Creative festival in NYC this June.  This festival has some of the most amazing creative artists, designers and coders in the industry all coming together to share their passion.  I’ll be covering how you can use your existing HTML and JavaScript skills to create Windows 8 apps for the new Windows Store.

Building an HTML5/JS App for Windows 8

Space Cadet is a Windows 8 Metro Style App developed using HTML5 and JavaScript. The intent of this session is to help HTML5/JavaScript developers with writing their first Metro Style App in a fun, immersive way. The code for the game will be distributed during the session, and developers will be able to freely re-use the code in future apps. Space Cadet starts out as small game with a functional game loop. Functionality is added to the game, as each new topic is introduced, including:

  • » HTML5 Canvas
  • » HTML5 Audio
  • » CSS3 Styling and Web Fonts
  • » Implementing a Game Loop with JavaScript
  • » Third Party Frameworks
  • » Touch
  • » Camera Access
  • » Accelerometer
  • » WinJS Controls

The session ends with HTML5/JavaScript developers having a baseline knowledge to build their own Windows 8 apps sell them in the new Windows Store. Plus... there will be giveaways!


This is going to be one amazing event! If you will be in town please stop on by and say hello.
