“HTML5 is the most important topic this year, as mobile platforms go through explosive growth,” said Ann Burkett, chair of SV IGDA and conference organizer. “As developers look for ways to accelerate the adoption of HTML5, it became obvious that Silicon Valley needed to kick off this conference.”

“I’m excited to see the new HTML5 Dev Conf in San Francisco cover the developer interest in HTML5,” said Peter Lubbers, co-author of ‘Pro HTML5 Programming.‘ “JavaScript and Games- make no mistake about it, this is the technology of the future for both the web and mobile”

The conference will bring together game and app developers looking to move to HTML5 and JavaScript as they become the new industry standard. Topics will include development tools, deployment models on mobile platforms, and performance measurement.

“Games are the single most popular application on mobile devices and HTML5 is the emerging development platform there,” said Savage. “We believe Spaceport brings a practical development environment and deployment model for high-performance HTML5 game development and operations.”

The conference will have morning and afternoon sessions. The morning sessions will consist of keynotes on JavaScript, HTML5 applications HTML5 gaming. The afternoon sessions will have parallel technical and hands-on tracks about HTML5, JavaScript and HTML5 gaming along with a few higher level strategic business outlook panels.
