Topic: Developing Games for the Windows Store with HTML5 and JavaScript

Ever thought about building a game? Facing the holiday break and wondering what you are going to do with all that free time? If you’ve got HTML and JavaScript skills, you’re well on your way to building the next bestseller game. In this fun presentation, Microsoft Technical Evangelist G. Andrew Duthie will show you how you can build fun games using HTML and JavaScript, along with useful libraries such as CreateJS, and even publish those games to the Windows Store. Given that it’s December, there might even be snowballs involved!
