After selling all 20 tickets for the first workshop in less than 24 hours, it was more than obvious that the second one is going to happen really soon.
I was able to start something I wanted to do for the past couple of years already - Gamedev.js workshops, so November can definitely be considered a good month.
It's not that Gamedev.js workshop #1 was my debut in a role of the workshop lead - I did run one at Mozilla Festival in 2013 and the other at BrazilJS in 2015 - but it was the first one in Poland and at the same time the first one ever organized by me. I wanted to do it for the past few years already, but it's better late than never.
I wrote a guest blog post for the JS Kongress conference (where I'll be running a workshop on how to build HTML5 games with Phaser) about the current state of HTML5 game development in 2016, or at least my point of view on the given topic.
If you'd like to learn how to build HTML5 games with Phaser and will be in Munich at the end of November, then I'd like to invite you to my workshop at the JS Kongress conference.
With the new approach to Participation in Mozilla, the volunteer gatherings will be called Leadership Summits from now on. It's something new for me too as I don't consider myself a leader at all.
I had the great pleasure to be invited to the Mozilla Work Week which took place in Orlando, Florida, USA on the week of December 7th-11th. It was my second Work Week as the first one was in Whistler six months earlier. This was a special one because we were spending our time next to the Disney World.
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.
