Attendee prerequisites for this tutorial are listed below.
Canvas is a 2D drawing API recently added to HTML and supported by most browser (even Internet Explorer 9 beta). Canvas allows you to draw anything you want directly in the webbrowser without the use of plugins like Flash or Java. With a deceptively simple API, Canvas has the ability to revolutionize how we build web applications for all devices, not just desktops. This session is a three hour workshop that will deep dive into Canvas, starting with the basics and progressing into real world applications. Finally we will take a look at some experimental edges of Canvas, such as webcam and audio visualization.
Attendees should bring a laptop with a recent webkit browser installed (Chrome or Safari) and their favorite text editor. We will be directly editing HTML and testing it.
