Lessons Learned Building An Interactive Sheet Music Engine

Monday, 12th – 11:35

Adrian Holovaty was foolish enough to build a dynamic sheet-music rendering engine entirely in JavaScript and HTML5. It's called Soundslice, and in this talk, he'll shower you with a wealth of practical advice, learned the hard way, from its development. You get the behind-the-scenes scoop on <canvas> hacks, JavaScript approaches, service worker workarounds, UI philosophies and more -- with plenty of demos of things you might not have known were possible on the Web.
