Google devs to teach introductory course

A free course teaching HTML5 game development is now available at the web education portal Udacity.

Udacity is one of several new online learning programs designed to bring higher education to a wider audience.

HTML5 has become one of the most popular solutions for creating code ready for deployment across multiple platforms.

The course features instruction from Google developers Colt McAnlis and Peter Lubbers.

"This course will walk you through the major components of building GRITS, an HTML5 game," read the class description.

"We'll talk about how to take standard game development techniques, and use them to create high performance HTML5 applications."

Those interested in giving the class a go can register here. An e-mail notification will begin when the class goes live.
