Welcome to the jsGameWiki!

This is the brain for game programming with html5/canvas/javascript.

I'm trying to structure helpful sources like eBooks, videos, blogs, articles, presentations...


Part I - Content directly relevant to game programming with html5/canvas/javascript
i.e. tutorials, blog posts, engines, etc.

Part II - Content related to web-development which can be useful in a game programming context
i.e. html5/canvas articles, javascript performance, etc.

Other Sources

A starting point for good javascript resources is bebraw's sensational jswiki.
(Actually I see jsGameWiki as an addition to jsWiki for game programming topics)

A second project I'm running is webdevresources, a collection of links on web-development in general.


In case you want to contribute, be my guest! Here is a place for people who want to learn something about game programming and I'm very happy if you have some interesting sources to share.

Part I - Game Sources

Part II - Game Related

because actionscript is very similar to javascript. you can definitely take away some concepts.
