I had the chance to go for my first work week with Mozilla – I was invited by the Developer Relations team (Technical Evangelism in particular) and spent a week from June 22nd till 27th in Whistler, Canada. It was a huge event with all the Mozilla employees and a bunch of lucky volunteers.
There was a Front-Trends conference three weeks ago which I attended – it was happening in Warsaw where I live and I was at all the previous editions, so I couldn’t miss it also this time.
I’ve visited Siedlce for the second year in a row giving talk about HTML5 games and Firefox OS. The technology is still considered new when it comes to making games, but more and more people learn that it’s not only for building simple websites anymore.
I was lucky enough to be selected as one of the speakers for the Mozilla DevRoom at the FOSDEM event happening last weekend in Brussels, Belgium.
After the successful visit at the ZTG Gamedev Convention I travelled to Budapest in Hungary to give two talks in one day at the Hungarian Web Conference. I was welcomed by the local community and enjoyed my time there.
I was invited to the ZTG conference a year ago, but Mozilla Festival event was already booked for the same date, so I said I’ll try to visit them next year. I wasn’t sure whether I’ll be going to MozFest again this year, but I ended up traveling to Poznan instead of London.
I’ve started Gamedev.js Weekly half a year ago and now, when it reached 2000 subscribers I decided to move it to its own domain and polish the design a bit.
So here it is: HTML5 Game Development Insights book printed by Apress was published a few days ago and is already available at Amazon. I wrote only one chapter, but still it’s the first printed material with me as an author, so I’m super happy about that.
The Mozilla Festival in which I participated was held during October 25th-27th last year, but I was quite busy lately and didn’t have time to post on this blog regularly. I’m still amazed by the event, so decided to write it down even though it was more than 3 months ago.
