Remember that cool game on Nokia 3310 called snake? Ohh, the memories. If you would like to see how to create this game using only Jquery and HTML5 Canvas - the state of the art current technologies used by Web Developing - attend this talk(?)/seminar.
We will be going through some of the steps needed to create this game using Jquery objects - meaning you can use that game as a module in whatever page you want. We will also cover animation issues, visual issues, input issues to go through the basics of this game creation.
Why? Because it would be fun and it will get you to know JQuery better through this fun project. Attend if you have no idea about Jquery or already a coding veteran....
