Cool intro post! I just started to learn about HTML5 canvas too :)


See you soon for part 2. And, don't hesitate to share some of your work here whatever the result. ;)


I'm a huge fan of HTML canvas having played with it a lot over a number of years, so great to see a (well written) post about it! HTML canvas can be a lot of fun, looking forward to part 2.


Thanks for you comments, it's heartwarming. Hope I could teach you 1 or 2 things despite your experience. Subscribe to not miss out ;)


Nice post!

Stay tuned.
