Just like a year ago, I visited Poznań to give a gamedev talk. This time, instead of Firefox OS, I presented about WebVR.
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.
After my talk at the meet.js Lublin about the Gamepad API last month I decided to try something new. I wanted to give a talk about WebVR for some time now, but didn't want to start without the proper setup. It ended up exactly how I wanted to avoid it: I gave a talk without the working device.
I had the pleasure of visiting my home town and speaking at the local meet.js Lublin meetup - on September 3rd I gave a talk about the Gamepad API.
I spent most of the month sending tons of emails to find judges, organize prizes and sponsors for the upcoming fourth edition of the js13kGames competition.
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.
