After what would seem an eternity the Falsy Values conference has returned. The first edition was held in 2011 and then the Front-Trends conference took over. This year we finally had both in a single year - with Front-Trends in May and Falsy Values in October.
As expected, September was full of work on the js13kGames competition. I was able to travel a little bit in the meantime, but it wasn't much - I visited Lublin and Berlin.
I had the pleasure to go once again to Reject.js conference after two years when I talked about Firefox OS and HTML5 games, but this time in a totally different role - as someone taking care of the WebVR and Games setup in the Mozilla lounge. My stay was expanded to JSConf.eu conference too.
Most of the month was taken over by js13kGames, obviously – sending more emails, accepting the entries and overall competition management. I also had the chance to run a gamedev workshop on another continent.
This time the main focus was put on creating the gamedev materials, so there was little to none work done on the games themselves.
There was a Front-Trends conference three weeks ago which I attended - it was happening in Warsaw where I live and I was at all the previous editions, so I couldn't miss it also this time.
Since the last report from March (posted in the middle of April) I’ve focused on the Technical Evangelism activities with the Wizard Quest bugfixing in the meantime. I hope both projects will make me happy eventually.
I've visited Siedlce for the second year in a row giving talk about HTML5 games and Firefox OS. The technology is still considered new when it comes to making games, but more and more people learn that it's not only for building simple websites anymore.
After the successful visit at the ZTG Gamedev Convention I travelled to Budapest in Hungary to give two talks in one day at the Hungarian Web Conference. I was welcomed by the local community and enjoyed my time there.
