Web Development for Programming ‘Dummies’

Richard Deveraux, Charles Darwin University Part of CW12

The presentation will look at some of the perceived barriers/limitations with developing for the web and will provide possible alternatives that can ease the transition from traditional native development. Some topics that would be covered include:

  • the barriers/limitations for web programming (straight from the spider’s mouth)
  • workflows for making cross platform websites / web applications using responsive design
  • developing a game with HTML5 and JavaScript

The last topic will look at my major third year project, which was a HTML5 Game (called The Little Worlds Project). This would include a live demo where the audience use BYO mobile devices to view/participate in the demo. QR codes will be provided for quick linking.
