About the Speakers
Chris made Apple iOS users cheer in 2010 when he released the open source “Smokescreen” beta. Smokescreen automatically converts Flash (SWF) to HTML5. Chris will give us the rundown on Smokescreen from a technical perspective and talk about his Flash to HTML5 magic!
Martin created Sarien.net which is an HTML5 based retro game emulator and multiplayer social experience. Sarien.net enables anyone with an HTML5 capable device to play classic Sierra games like Space Quest (awesome on iPad) and Leisure Suit Larry. It also enables users to play these games in a multiplayer mode and interact with others in the game world.
