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 - Here is the stuff which is really relevant to game programming with html5/canvas/javascript

Part II - Here is the stuff which is related to webdevelopment and can be useful if you want to improve your basic skills

Other Sources

First start point for good javascript resources is bebraw with his sensational jswiki.

Actually I see jsGameWiki as an addition to jsWiki for game programming topics.

A second project I'm running is webdevresources. Here i'm collecting links for web development in general.


In case you want to contribute, let's do it! Here is a place for people who whants to learn something about game programming and I'm very happy if you have some interesting sources.
