Presentation at the Eastbay HTML5 Meetup

Getting out there

Niraj and I presented the work we did for “The Killers” at the Eastbay HTML5 Meetup tonight. Overall I think the the presentation went pretty well. We tried to strike a good balance between talking about the creative process that went into creating the site, and actionable advice regarding SVG and Canvas.

I also gave a simple canvas animation demo:

The code above adds three circles to a canvas element, and moves them from (xCoord, yCoord) to (xDest, yDest) and then back. We apply some easing to give them some acceleration, and to make the animation slightly more interesting.

This is very similar to what we did with on the actual Killers site, just with far fewer elements :-)
