Half off my book HTML5 in Action

Today only (April 9th), Manning Publications is offering my book HTML5 in Action 50%. The book focuses on building HTML5 apps with JavaScript through various APIs. I wrote the chapters on visual APIs with Canvas, SVG, and WebGL that walk you through building retro game clones. Book is almost done, so this is a great time to get a copy before it lands on shelves.

HTML5 Space Invaders like game with SVG

For my upcoming book HTML5 in Action, I wrote a chapter on creating a game like Space Invaders with SVG. The tutorial teaches you various methods for creating visual assets with vector graphics and XML.After creating the visual assets, it teaches you how to combine everything with JavaScript. The JavaScript isn’t too complex and I walk you through every step of the way. Great for those who want to learn how to create re-sizable graphics for in-browser use.
