So there was a week in Berlin that was fully packed with front-end events: RejectJS, CSSConf.eu and JSConf.eu. I was lucky enough to be invited to speak at the first one - it was a satellite event before the main JSConf.eu event. There was also a lot of parties around to integrate with the community.
As you may already know we’ve launched our first HTML5 mobile game called Captain Rogers. It was optimized and prepared for the Firefox OS devices (I’ve got one after the App Workshops thanks to Mozilla!) and published in the Firefox Marketplace. The main focus will be put on that platform and the ecosystem. There are only days left till the official launch, so it should be interesting. The first commercial Firefox OS devices were announced today and will be available very soon.
Last weekend was full of the game development goodness - I've organized Warsaw Game Jam, the first edition of the Global Game Jam. Thanks to our amazing sponsors - Mozilla and GitHub, we could provide cozy place with good Wi-Fi, food and drinks (mostly beer and pizza) for everybody during the whole weekend. It wasn't only the Game Jam itself, but we were working hard for the Mozilla Game On competition and thinking about fulfilling One Game a Month at the same time. On sunday evening we even had a meet.js meetup with some guys from the Firefox OS team!
In the next three weeks, on January 25th-27th there will be a Global Game Jam - 48h coding marathon for game developers. I'm organizing the Warsaw Game Jam, and there will be three events during one weekend: Global Game Jam mentioned earlier, Mozilla Game On competition and an initiative called One Game a Month. If you're near Warsaw on that weekend come join us!
If you're an HTML5 game developer that have a lot of free time, want to win something and participate with others then there's a couple of interesting competitions going on right now or in the near future. Let's have a look at what's going on.
Now when the competition started let's sit and look back at what just happened and why I didn't mention about it earlier.
The conference is over and I'm missing it already - it was a blast, continuous party with amazing people! I even forgot about some of the talks, because I was partying and talking with so many amazing people, both speakers and attendees. Everybody that I saw speaking or writing about the event was expressing positive impressions. Can't wait for 2013!
