Hi guys. My name is Vasyl. I started to work as a backend web programmer more than 5 years ago. But shifted to the fronted later. I am working on big projects with rich UI using Ext Js or Backbone.Marionette for 3 years. Playcanvas is interesting for me because it seems really easy to drop in and contribute because of JS as a coding language, HTML environment which may be used for Game UI and opened sources.
I wanted to create games a long time ago and now seems I have a possibility to try it. My wife is a beginner 3D Artist so we are going to have a fun creating game prototypes with Playcanvas
I think Playcanvas is the best place to start for beginners with JS and HTML background.
