Second public Call for Proposals for the Grant for the Web program is now open! The first one was announced more than a year ago, in May 2020, and the program evolved since then bringing many interesting Web Monetization experiments to life.
The very first Grant for the Web program community call was happening last week, on Thursday June 24th, and I was lucky enough to be presenting about our very own project that we completed recently.
This time during our bi-monthly W3C Games Community Group meetup that happened June 22nd we had three presentations: Godot's and Pixi's history and future, and an update from Coil about the upcoming Web Monetization Workshop and the Rafiki project.
Something I was hoping and waiting for - Richard Davey, the author of Phaser, is currently working on the fourth version of the framework full time.
This is going to be a weird (but not sponsored!) blog post where I brag about a whole lot of cool swag I got from one particular company, and almost all because of one perticular person, so I'd like to officially thank him for that.
Another bi-monthly online meetup of the W3C Games Community Group happened a few days ago, on April 15th, and this time two main presentation topics revolved around Unity and WebCodecs.
Second cohort of the Kernel program, first one game-themed, ended up already, so it's time to summarize all the sessions that we had over those past few weeks.
A few days ago, on Thursday March 4th, I've joined a session about the Diverse Game Developers Fund (started by IGDA Foundation and supported by the Grant for the Web program) at the Indie Game Business online conference.
After gathering at TPAC in October, deciding to do that bi-monthly and having a dedicated meetup in December, we had another W3C Games Community Group online meetup that happened earlier this week, on Tuesday February 9th.
The ongoing pandemic and the end of the Mozilla Tech Speakers program accelerated my shift in focus towards more writing and coding, but this didn't last for too long.
