Best HTML5 Game Programming Tutorials


I need to know what you think are the best
HTML5 game programming tutorials. Try Khan Academy’s lessons on HTML and JavaScript. I know there are people trying to put coding
up there with reading and writing and arithmetic, but too many kids cannot even read English,
much less JS. Well, if Khan Academy can teach them grammar
and fractions, I’m sure it can teach you HTML5 and JavaScript. So I learn the basics of the language. What
about learning how to create games? The Khan Academy lessons end with you creating
a JavaScript and HTML game. Where else can I learn that, other than the
site my friends’ kids use to do their homework? Udacity has a free course on HTML5 game development,
though I do not know enough to rate its quality. Code dot TutsPlus dot com has some decent
tutorials on HTML5 game development, and that site has a reputation for quality. At least it is free for me to try. You could try using sites like PlayCanvas
or Construct 2 to make games in HTML5 without coding. That has even less cred on your resume than
saying I know HTML. CodeAvengers dot com has lessons on building
games with JavaScript and HTML5. Or try the HTML5Rocks dot com for their tutorials on
making a game on game development. They certainly got the right name for their
site. Speaking of which, HTML5GameDevelopment dot
com has tutorials on HTML5 game development too. I would have been surprised if they didn’t. Ray Wenderlich’s website has lessons on
how to make a simple game in HTML5, though he references at least one or two different
frameworks most people don’t. HTML5 is the only framework I’m going to
worry about. Mozilla.org has a decent lesson on getting
started with HTML5 game development, though it may not be the latest and greatest. HTML5 is the latest and greatest HTML version,
and it is supposed to replace everything from Adobe Flash to web text tags. Yes, though you’ll still find Adobe Flash
on way too many sites. Speaking of old timely methods, you could try the MSDN dot Microsoft
dot com website lesson on best practices on HTML5 game development. That’s like reading about the recent uses
of Fortran on Windows XP. At least it is not as obsolete as the how
to program in HTML5 for stupid people books in the library. You could go to the A Harris
Books site, though for at least part of the latest book on HTML5 game development for
newbies. I am new at this. SpyreStudios has a whole list of tutorials
for developing HTML5 web browser games. That’s not much better than searching Google
search results. I’d rather try Microsoft’s advice. Oh, you’re not that desperate.
