Intel Developer Blog: Why more developers are turning to HTML5 when porting their games

Going cross-platform with HTML5

With so many different devices running games and apps on various operating systems today, there really is no such thing as one-size-fits-all development.

But porting an app can be a laborious and time-consuming process for developers who would rather be getting on with their next creative project. That’s one of the reasons more app makers are turning to cross-platform development, and HTML5 is their weapon of choice.

If you’re looking to reap the benefits of developing hybrid apps across multiple app stores and form factors but aren’t sure where to start, there are plenty of resources available on the Intel Developer Zone – not least Intel’s free cross-platform development tool, the Intel XDK.

To help you put your tools to good use, there are training resources covering HTML5 app build, testing and debugging, and the XDK’s drop-and-drag App Starter tool for creating a smart UI.

And if you’re interested in developing apps that live in the Internet of Things, there’s the Intel XDK IoT Edition. Find out how to use JavaScript to define your IoT app’s behaviour and build companion apps to control it remotely.

Once you’re up and running with your HTML5 development environment, keep track of the latest updates here.
