Until now, rich 3D experience has always been limited to desktop applications and a few high-end mobile games. With WebGL, for the first time we have a truly cross-platform graphics API that unlocks the power of hardware-accelerated 3D rendering right on the web. Join us as we learn about what WebGL is, how it works, and how you can use it. We will also show a showcase of some of the most impressive WebGL demonstrations out there. You wouldn't believe it's the web! Knowledge of web development is recommended but not required. We will mainly cover high-level concepts, run through some demonstrations, and show small snippets of code.
