After reactivating the W3C Games Community Group at TPAC 2020, we decided to continue with bi-monthly online meetups to report on our progress and be up-to-date with all things web gamedev. The short summary below is about the second gathering this year that happened on December 15th 2020.
Last week, on Tuesday October 20th, we had a W3C Games Community Group meeting at TPAC 2020 that was held online, and I was talking about Web Monetization in HTML5 games.
This is not going to be a surprise if I say we were affected by Covid-19 as well. It's not that bad as many other industries, but our daughter Kasia stays home and Ewa is taking care of schooling, so she don't have much time for anything else.
If you haven't noticed, a new portal from Google launched more than a month ago - it's called GameSnacks, and focuses on delivering fast casual gaming experiences.
Even though 2020 is a leap year and February had 29 days instead of 28, it was rather slow and quiet month.
Last month of the year, December, have seen a few events, and some swag being shipped to those who were suppose to get it a month or two ago already.
It was another busy month - I've focused mostly on finishing writing GDevelop tutorial, but also organized Gamedev.js Warsaw #14 meetup, and gave a lightning talk at the JS Poland conference.
Back in August I was accepted to the first edition of the Season of Docs - Google's program to connect open source software with technical writers. I was set to write a hyper-casual game tutorial built in GDevelop engine.
It's official! I'll be participating in this year's Season of Docs where Google helps connect technical writers with open source projects and communities - I've teamed up with the GDevelop folks.
