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.
It's official, so I can share the good news: brand new Panasonic TVs running Firefox OS that are showed at the CES 2016, one of the biggest electronic shows on Earth happening right now in Las Vegas, will have Captain Rogers 2 as one of the demo applications!
It's this time of the month again - let's see if Christmas got in the way of doing some cool gamedev stuff in December.
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.
I spent November writing gamedev articles for MDN, demoing WebVR in London and realizing I finished a game some time ago already.
The Device Lab website launched a few months ago, but the Lab itself appeared on the OpenDeviceLab.com map very recently. It's still 'one of many' projects that I run with no fixed headquarters and an uncertain future, but it already tries to serve its purpose.
It was my second visit to MozFest - the first time was two years ago at MozFest 2013 and I was amazed by the specific festival atmosphere. That's why I decided to go this year too, but this time with a different session.
I haven't released any new games in a very long time, because I focused on a variety of other gamedev projects even more than usual. There are finally some good news though - more work on Wizard Quest 'in the meantime' and the newest game, Caveman Grru.
Just like a year ago, I visited Poznań to give a gamedev talk. This time, instead of Firefox OS, I presented about WebVR.
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.
