2012-02-13 2012-02-17 HTML5 Games Work Week Toronto, Canada Rob Hawkes More and more video games developers are starting to look at HTML5 as a key platform for future growth. With the upcoming release of our market place, we are already starting to see support requests coming in, many of which are difficult to resolve without changes to the platform. Games also tend to be a great driver of technology and have high expectation on quality of user experience. Looking at ways to address their needs in an open way will help us improve the platform and positively impact users far beyond just the video game industry, especially those looking to build media rich experiences. This work week is intended to help figure out our path forward and determine how these issues fit in with other priorities.
