Workshop 9 – Back to Basics: Part 2

Back to Basics: Part 2 (WebGL, Three.js and Babylon.js)
Our ninth Workshop will take place on Thursday, 28th August at SkillsMatter, 116-120 Goswell Road, London
This month we finish the rotating dice in raw WebGL, then do the same in THREE.js and Babylon.js for comparison.

Prerequisites
• A laptop with a browser that supports WebGL (http://get.webgl.org/) and an editor that can handle HTML and JavaScript.
• Some knowledge of HTML and programming, preferably JavaScript (or similar).
• Some features may require a server (e.g. image loading), although there are workarounds. (Brackets.io and Visual Studio provide one, or you can use node.js or whatever you’re comfortable with.)

Workshop 3 – Lighting

Light and Shadow
Alvin Ourrad will be giving a brief introduction to pixi.js (a super fast HTML5 2D rendering engine that uses WebGL with canvas fallback).

Then we’ll take a look at light and shadows in WebGL… I’ll try to include some THREE.js this time.
