Build your next game on a bigger scale with Pro HTML5 Games . This essential book teaches you to master advanced game programming in HTML5. Youll learn techniques that you can transfer to any area of HTML5 game development to make your own professional HTML5 games. Led by an expert game programmer, youll build two complete games in HTML5: a strategy puzzle game based on the Box2d physics engine and in the style of Angry Birds and a real-time strategy (RTS) game complete with units, buildings, path-finding, artificial intelligence, and multiplayer support. This new and fully updated second edition now includes chapters on mobile game development and an essential game developers toolkit. Understand how to develop complex, bolder games and become an HTML5 games pro using Pro HTML5 Games today. What Youll Learn Create realistic physics in your game by incorporating the Box2d physics engine Design large worlds with lots of characters and let users interact with them Use sprite sheets, panning, parallax scrolling, and sound effects to build a more polished game Incorporate pathfinding and steering to help characters navigate through your world Create challenging levels with intelligent enemies by using decision trees, state machines, and scripted events Add multiplayer in your games using Node.js and the WebSocket API Aditya Ravi Shankar started programming in 1993 when he was first introduced to the world of computers. With no access to the Internet or online tutorials at the time, he wrote his first game in GW-BASIC by painstakingly retyping code from a book he found at the local library. After graduating from the Indian Institute of Technology Madras in 2001, he spent nearly a decade working as a software consultant, developing trading and analytics systems for investment banks and large Fortune 100 companies, before eventually leaving his corporate life behind so he could focus on doing what he loved. A self-confessed technology geek, he has spent the time since then working on his own projects and experimenting with every new language and technology that he could, including of course HTML5. During this time he became well known for singlehandedly re-creating the famous RTS game Command and Conquer, as well as Commandos: Behind Enemy Lines entirely in HTML5. Apart from programming, Aditya is passionate about billiards, salsa dancing, fitness and personal development. He maintains a personal website where he writes articles on game programming, personal development, and billiards, as well as shares his popular game demos. When he is not busy writing or working on his own projects, Aditya does consulting work with companies to help them launch new software products and games.

HTML5 Solutions:Essential Techniques for HTML5 Developers. 1st ed Marco Casario, Peter Elst, Charles Brown, Nathalie Wormser, Cyril Hanquez
A major limitation of conventional web sites is their unorganized and isolated contents, which is created mainly for human consumption. This limitation can be addressed by organizing and publishing data, using powerful formats that add structure and meaning to the content of web pages and link related data to one another. Computers can understand such data better, which can be useful for task automation. The web sites that provide semantics (meaning) to software agents form the Semantic Web, the Artificial Intelligence extension of the World Wide Web. In contrast to the conventional Web (the Web of Documents), the Semantic Web includes the Web of Data, which connects things (representing real-world humans and objects) rather than documents meaningless to computers. Mastering Structured Data on the Semantic Web explains the practical aspects and the theory behind the Semantic Web and how structured data, such as HTML5 Microdata and JSON-LD, can be used to improve your site’s performance on next-generation Search Engine Result Pages and be displayed on Google Knowledge Panels. You will learn how to represent arbitrary fields of human knowledge in a machine-interpretable form using the Resource Description Framework (RDF), the cornerstone of the Semantic Web. You will see how to store and manipulate RDF data in purpose-built graph databases such as triplestores and quadstores, that are exploited in Internet marketing, social media, and data mining, in the form of Big Data applications such as the Google Knowledge Graph, Wikidata, or Facebook’s Social Graph. With the constantly increasing user expectations in web services and applications, Semantic Web standards gain more popularity. This book will familiarize you with the leading controlled vocabularies and ontologies and explain how to represent your own concepts. After learning the principles of Linked Data, the five-star deployment scheme, and the Open Data concept, you will be able to create and interlink five-star Linked Open Data, and merge your RDF graphs to the LOD Cloud. The book also covers the most important tools for generating, storing, extracting, and visualizing RDF data, including, but not limited to, Protégé; TopBraid Composer, Sindice, Apache Marmotta, Callimachus, and Tabulator. You will learn to implement Apache Jena and Sesame in popular IDEs such as Eclipse and NetBeans, and use these APIs for rapid Semantic Web application development. Mastering Structured Data on the Semantic Web demonstrates how to represent and connect structured data to reach a wider audience, encourage data reuse, and provide content that can be automatically processed with full certainty. As a result, your web contents will be integral parts of the next revolution of the Web. Leslie F. Sikos, Ph.D., is a Semantic Web researcher at Flinders University, South Australia, specializing in semantic video annotations, ontology engineering, and natural language processing using Linguistic Linked Open Data. On the cutting edge of Internet technologies, he is a member of industry-leading organizations, such as the World Wide Web Consortium, the Internet Engineering Task Force, and the Internet Society. He is an invited editor and journal reviewer actively contributing to the development of open standards. Dr. Sikos is the author of 15 textbooks covering a wide range of topics from computer networks to software engineering and web design. Devoted to lifelong learning, he holds multiple degrees in computer science and information technology, as well as professional certificates from the industry. Thanks to his hands-on skills, coupled with a pedagogical background, he can introduce technical terms and explain complex issues in plain English.Dr. Sikos creates fully standard-compliant, mobile-friendly web sites with responsive web design—complemented by machine-readable annotations—and develops multimedia applications leveraging Semantic Web technologies. He works on the standardization of Linked Data implementations for the precise identification, description, and classification of multimedia fragments, advancing the traditional video annotation techniques. Inspired by the creation and exploitation of rich Linked Open Data datasets, he proudly contributes to the Open Data and Open Knowledge initiatives. For more information, visit www.lesliesikos.com.
