Publisher Comments:

Flash is fading fast as Canvas continues to climb. The second edition of this popular book gets you started with HTML5 Canvas by showing you how to build interactive multimedia applications. Youll learn how to draw, render text, manipulate images, and create animation—all in the course of building an interactive web game throughout the book.

Updated for the latest implementations of Canvas and related HTML5 technologies, this edition includes clear and reusable code examples to help you quickly pick up the basics—whether you currently use Flash, Silverlight, or just HTML and JavaScript. Discover why HTML5 is the future of innovative web development.

  • Create and modify 2D drawings, text, and bitmap images
  • Use algorithms for math-based movement and physics interactions
  • Incorporate and manipulate video, and add audio

  • Explore ways to use Canvas for 3D and multiplayer game applications

Book News Annotation:

Steve and Jeff Fulton update their guide to software for drawing on the Internet. Readers who have some programming background will have an easier time, they say, but their introduction to Canvas should also ease newbies into web programming for the first time. A web browser and a text editor are needed to run Canvas. They cover drawing on the canvas; the HTML5 Canvas text API; images on the canvas; math, physics, and animation; mixing HTML5 video and Canvas; working with audio; Canvas games; going mobile; and further explorations.
